Obamacare: Another union boss speaks out against the healthcare law

September 13, 2013

  The unions all jumped on board to support Obamacare after their bosses carved out an exemption from the law for their members. This exemption secured the support of the Democrats’ largest special interest group, but recently they have begun to realize they were lied to and will be subjected to the healthcare reform law. Needless to say, they are not happy that they will also be subjected to the law they helped to pass.

  First we learned the AFL-CIO was losing 40,000 members because of the Affordable Care Act, which led  AFL-CIO boss Richard Trumka to demand changes to the law. And now another union leader is speaking out against the unintended consequences of Obamacare.

  Here is what LIUNA President Terry O’Sullivan had to say today:

Laborers’ International Union of North America (LIUNA) President Terry O’Sullivan said, “if the Affordable Care Act is not fixed, and it destroys the health and welfare funds that we have all fought for and stand for, then I believe it needs to be repealed. We don’t want it repealed. We want it fixed, fixed, fixed.” 

O’Sullivan added: “We can’t have the unintended consequences for the proud men and women that we represent to be collateral damage in the healthcare fight in this country.” 

  What people like Trumka and O’Sullivan are either ignoring, don’t realize, or do not care to admit is this: None of this was unintended, it was the plan of the Obama regime and the Democrats all along. They want people to lose their healthcare insurance so that support will grow for a single-payer system for that was the plan all along.

  These union leaders did not give a damn about these unintended consequences because they believed they would be exempted from the law, but now that they are not they are feigning outrage at what is about to befall the American people.

  Much like the Federal employees, once they gain their exemption from the law they will quietly fade into the sunset on this issue because they do not care about the Average American, they only care about the people (their members) who pay their salaries. To quote ‘Blazing Saddles,’ they must protect their phony, baloney jobs.

  These people are now upset because they have learned they will be subjected to the very same disastrous legislation from which they thought they were exempt, and I for one find it hard to feel sorry for them now that they have learned they are no better, or different, than any other American taxpayer.

    Your messiah can pretty much wave his magic wand anytime anywhere for any reason. Rattle his cage just a bit more and have no fear union guys, the wink and a nod can’t be far behind.

      Before this is all over the exemption will be put in place, of this I am sure.

    I find this post particularly fascinating inasmuch as the international worker’s union SEIU not only helped to elect Barack Obama in 2008, but worked with religious fervor to re-elect him in 2012. SEIU worked 24-7 like rapid trolls from inauguration day January 2009 until Obamacare was passed in early 2010 to MAKE sure the bill was passed into law. So what gives? This represents a TRUE WTF moment.

    If it wasn’t for the travesty that is Obamacare I would laugh my rear end off at these unions. They helped get Obama elected not once but twice and now they are finding out they’re getting screwed just like the rest of us. Welcome to the club, unions! And now if something could just be done about exempting Congress….

      It would be funny if it were not so tragic, but I am enjoying the fact they are getting screwed as well because they deserve it.

    No one even knows how many waivers to date have been given out. They stopped reporting some time ago. Why this doesn’t go to court beats me. It should be challenged. The unions will get theirs without a doubt.

      There have been hundreds of waivers and you are right, they have stopped counting at this point. I agree with you that before all is said and done the unions will be taken care of.
