AFL-CIO "Natives are Restless" over ObamaCare...

Post  News Hawk on Fri Sep 13, 2013 3:24 am

"The AFL-CIO has approved a resolution calling Obamacare “highly disruptive” for some union health plans and seeking changes to key provisions of the health law that affect these plans, known as Taft-Hartley plans.

"AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka said the resolution raises the issue of whether “low- and moderate-income union members and their collectively bargained health care plans will be able to benefit from the same premium support that big insurance companies will receive and if they will have to pay fees to subsidize big insurance companies,” a statement on the AFL-CIO site reads. “There also are concerns that smaller employers will be able to get away with taking health care away from workers while paying no penalty".

"The House Education and Workforce Committee sent out a statement Thursday saying, “It’s encouraging to see those who strongly endorsed the health care law finally recognize its fundamental problems.”

Unions' formerly strong support is failing ObamaCare.

Who could have seen this coming?
