Unite Here, which represents more than 300,000 workers in the hotel, food service, laundry, warehouse and gaming industries, was the nation’s very first labor union to back Barack Obama’s quest for the White House.

It also was one of the foremost supporters of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the signature achievement — if it can be described as such — of Mr. Obama’s presidency.

So a new report by Unite Here, “The Irony of Obamacare: Making Inequality Worse,” cannot be dismissed by the White House, by Democrats on Capitol Hill, or by the left-leaning punditocracy, as a politically biased document.

“The promise of Obamacare was the right one,” the report states, “and the hope for extending health care coverage to the un- and under-insured a step in the right direction. Yet the unintended consequences will hit the average, hardworking American where it hurts: in the wallet.”
