Skip to comments.Union leaders: ObamaCare will “destroy the very health and wellbeing” of America’s working class

Bear in mind that Big Labor went to bat for ObamaCare in a big way throughout the months-long debate over its passage. When Tea Party activists demonstrated to raise opposition to the legislation, unions like the Teamsters counterprotested, sometimes violently, in an attempt to intimidate conservatives into acquiescence. Unions spent big money in the 2010 election hoping to protect Democrats from the consequences of their votes on ObamaCare, arguing that the bill would help the working class by sticking it to insurers and fat cats.
Now that the law is about to be implemented, though, it suddenly looks awful to union leaders like Teamsters president James Hoffa, UFCW president Joseph Hanson, and UNITE-HERE president D. Taylor. The Wall Street Journal published a letter on Friday that the union leaders sent to Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi expressing shock, shock that a massive and expensive government intervention would screw up the labor market:

Talk about hypocrisy. I wish Obamacare would only be for the unions and any other fools who want it.
Didn’t these union morons support nobama and nobamacare? Fools!
The partisan fruit was just too delicious at the time to stand aside and listen to reason, wasn't it?
“The union heads are only worried now because their members are finally going to impacted by their own actions...the law of unintended consequences”
By the time it is implemented, ALL union members will be exempt.
It would almost be worth watching this pile of poop go into effect just to watch the Unions squeal.
You have to be careful what you wish for though, and Obamacare is going to ruin the Health Care of us all.
The Unions backed this Muslim pile of trash because they were looking at their Pensions, their bargaining process , and pay raises. Now they see that Obama and his idiot ideas are hurting them, They wouldn’t listen, they had to have this scum.
“Union leaders: ObamaCare will destroy the very health and wellbeing of Americas working class”
Welcome to the party geniuses...while you all were working hard and giving your money to your union and your union was spending your money to get “the one” elected and re-elected. Pay attention next time or don’t vote.
"And you let it on the ship!"
Even Union Bosses are Useful Idiots, but they can use members dues for their health care. Even less for the rest of the union morons.
Attention union goons.....you reap what you sow....deal with it you morons. You got what you voted for why are you crying now?
For the life of me I can’t understand how unions favor the RAT candidate. If you look at the policies that the RATS favor, they are against capitalism, which creates jobs that employ workers. If the unions were smart they would realize that and switch to the “right” side of the equation. Better fiscal and regulatory policies means that more business is created and more people need to be hired. High school economics.
Yea we know, you fools.
Jokes on us as well, though.
Is this the group of unionistas that want to keep their multi-employer plans and also have the lower paid union members go into the exchanges?
Now they are finally starting to figure out how much it will hurt their members they are trying to cover their asses. These people betrayed their own membership in order to gain favor with Obama, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi.
They only cared about the “win”. Now they realize they won the booby prize.
