Labor union officials say Obama betrayed them in health-care rollout
Washington Post ^ | Jan 31, 2014 | Steven Mufson and Tom Hamburger

Well the Unions sure aren’t going to give the money to anyone right of center. Just more money for the Union bosses for hookers and blow.

Their complaints reflect a broad sense of disappointment among many labor leaders, who say the Affordable Care Act has subjected union health plans to new taxes and mandates while not allowing them to share in the subsidies that have gone to private insurance companies competing on the newly created exchanges.

Well, you dumb asses, they expect you to pay for all the medicaid enrollees with your well paid union drones...

Some Unions are more equal than others..The Bam team cherry picks who makes the grade. Pony up with money and adoration for king Barry and the chances for his favor rise exponentially. You small potatoes Unions well your just SOL. Have a nice day dhimmis.

The unions are no longer necessary: outnumbered by the illegals.

Time to gather the Union victims and occupy the Capitol or White House in DC with beating drums all around to protest this injustice. Oh wait, that only happens with an effective, conservative governor in office who likes to balance the budget as the goal.

Good! It was CRIMINAL that they got any special consideration to begin with. They can go eff themselves and cry in a corner for all I care. I only hope when the country is finally in the sh!tter on life-support (like right now, for instance), they realize their hand in it by voting for the lying bastard.

That is exactly why the unions should stick with the Tea Party. The Dems want to give union jobs away to the illegals. Don’t believe them when they say the illegals will join the unions. They will say that now and forget it later.

Anyway, even if they were to start joining the unions, there are only so many jobs to go around. Unions lose with amnesty.
