Union Report Criticizes ObamaCare
10 March 2014
Though labor unions have been some of President Obama's biggest advocates, a recent report from a major union reveals trouble in paradise. According to the report, Obama's prized healthcare law will further worsen income inequality.
The report makes sure to defend the overall intent of ObamaCare, but cannot ignore the fact that it will increase the wealth for insurance companies while simultaneously hurting workers.
"The promise of Obamacare was the right one and the hope for extending healthcare coverage to the un- and under-insured a step in the right direction. Yet the unintended consequences will hit the average, hard-working American where it hurts: in the wallet," the report begins, reiterating a concern that has been voiced by Republicans since the healthcare law was passed.
Entitled "The Irony of Obamacare: Making Inequality Worse," the report, put out by United Here a hospitality industry union observes that the law helps transfer billions of dollars to health insurance companies, makes the playing field in the health market more uneven, and may force employers to cut employee hours or decrease employee pay.
According to the report, it is "ironic" that the administration has openly discussed income inequality while also supporting a healthcare system that increases income disparity.
Even the unions can’t put lipstick on this pig.
Extra butter on my popcorn!
