Posted on 06/19/2013 7:07:40 PM PDT by Uncle Sham
So lets see if we've got this right. Chicago, then Detroit, dump their union retirees healthcare plans and force them into Obamacare. Union contracted healthcare provisions thrown away by those cities who negotiated, then signed the agreements knowing full well that they were not affordable. They bought votes with these contracts, enriched themselves, shoveled money to their friends and supporters and now, poof, just like that, the rest of America is supposed to pick up the tab.
These are the actions of someone who does not plan to ever run for office again. They've shown their hands to the very people whose support put them in office. Obamacare was not sold as a "cost-shifting" plan for those who were currently insured. It was sold as a "cost-saving" plan for those who were insured as well as coverage for those who were uninsured.
The truth is now out there for all to see, even those who were duped into supporting it's passage. The Unions are angry. They see what's ahead as one city after another, one state after another dumps them into Obamacare rather than keep their commitments to signed contracts. The rest of America is angry as well, living within their means only to have the corrupt irresponsibility and fraud of dishonest Marxist I.O.U.'s shoved down their throats.
Folks, it doesn't get any more in your face "screw you" than this. The people orchestrating this must feel mighty safe in their positions. The people orchestrating this are not planning to need their union friends any longer. They think that we've had our last elections if they are willing to do what they've done.
It is time for the states to take charge and protect their citizens from these monsters. Apparently, time is getting short.
Remember the name Bob Bauer...forever:
Yes it will stand.
Most of the California municipal Unions will do the same thing.
By the time the idiotic Union Thugs realize they’ve been had it will be too late.
Democrats don't care about Unions... is that really news? Democrats aren't worried about unions leaving any more than they're worried about inner city black leaving...
As a former Cook County IL resident who bugged out of that Socialist hell-hole some time ago - I can ascertain and will repeat that we had seen our last open and quasi-honest national elections back in 2008.
From that point on, we have The Machine gone national, and what we saw in 2012 was exactly what I warned; the old Soviet technique of creating an illusion of choice while the Party Masters actually determine who will be the leader.
It’s a corrupt shell-game we used to see happen in the old Soviet Union, now it’s perfected in use here.
They are self-aware. They are assured their monopoly on power.
We are imbeciles to assume elections or the systems they have corrupted and taken over are going to do anything but enslave us.
They have already gotten away with far more than even some corrupt Socialist dictators have gotten away with from their subjects.
And we ARE subjects - not citizens in the reality we now find ourselves in.
Why do you think all those feral government agencies have been stockpiling ammo?
we knew fully well that the last election could very well be the last....
Woman got free Sandra Fluke pills and (many esp single wimmin) voted for Obama to thank him.
But those ones may be too dumb to understand what happens to them next.
This is a banana republic. Watch it happen.
The city will now pay the lower premiums to the exchanges and the retirees will get not so good coverage? The Chicago way.
And so, the only real issue left will be "access," which gives a hint why all the Obamacare "navigators" will come from ACORN and AFSCME and SEIU.
"Mr Whitey, we have your chemotherapy treatments scheduled for early 2035."
Even the not so good coverage the union commies will get under Obamacare will kick the crap out of the non-existent care the other suckers will get.
“This is a banana republic. Watch it happen.”

A successful Banana Republic must:
1. Suspend the rule of law to allow for Ruling party corruption.
2. Control and influence the media to make sure the people only hear what they want them to hear.
Are we there yet? UNKNOWN
I don't think they'll get anything at all after the rest of the nation pulls the plug on this scam. It is no longer about "health care". It's about the scam. They think they can pull this off without fear from those they are stealing from, both union and public. They had better think again.
