Skip to comments.Unions meet with Obama over health care concerns
Posted on 09/13/2013 2:20:34 PM PDT by Olog-hai
AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka says he hopes the White House will act within a week to address the growing concerns that labor unions have over the new health care law.
Unions want members to be eligible for the same federal subsidies available to low-income workers in the new health exchanges.

Somebody tell me why Labor Unions should get a break and the rest of America shouldn’t ?
What makes labor Unions special?
What makes Congressional Staffers special.
What happened to America’s everyone is equal.
If Obama is going to screw me why should he screw them too?
These Union a-holes voted for this, they should be happy with it.
One thing you gotta give dem/libs, they have brass balls.
If the law does not apply equally to all American Citizens how can it be Constitutional? We have all these exempt and specially treated groups, including our so called leaders that it just seems it can’t be legal.
Oh, come on now. Everyone is equal; some are just more equal than others...
Congress, I think is also exempt from Social Security!!!
NO EXCEPTIONS FOR ANYONE....NONE>...THE PRESIDENT SHOULD ALSO BE UNDER OBAMACARE!!!! MARCH!!!
I hope it doesn’t happen, but if Obama and Sebelius give the unions a subsidy, what is Congress going to do? I haven’t seen any willingness to do more than posturing by the GOP leadership.
The GOP has leadership? Really? Where?
Where is my 14 Amendment equal protection?
Maybe not the right thread for this comment, but, I’m thinking about exempting myself. My company provided health care is over 300 mo now. I never use it. Just worried about an accident of some sort. Anyway, with Obama care if I get hurt I’ll just sign up...I guess. Any thoughts? Oh, single, 52 and no kids.
Screw them, their Ox is gored and they cry foul, what about the rest of the country,they are not apposed at putting the burden on us.
What makes labor Unions special?
What matters has nothing to do with what you know, everything with whom you know in the so-called "progressive" oligarchy.
Seems like the law would be applied unequally if a union member got a federal subsidy for health care (regardless of income) and an employee of a non-unionized business did not. Sounds like a lawsuit in the making.
Here comes the exemption.
It’s good to be part of the nomenklatura.
IMPEACH OBAMA ALREADY!
Can only sign up during an enrollment period.
Since the SC ruled it’s a tax, how can it be legal for some to get government subsidies and others not.
“The Equal Protection Clause of the 14th amendment of the U.S. Constitution prohibits states from denying any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws. See U.S. Const. amend. XIV. In other words, the laws of a state must treat an individual in the same manner as others in similar conditions and circumstances.”
Isn’t what the Zero doing violating the 14th amendment?
