Awe the Irony.
Maybe they should have read the bill before supporting it. Watch for a special union carve-out for Mr. Obama's biggest supporters. Graft begets favors.
To the unions: You wanted this mess of a program, now you live with the consequences. I have absolutely no sympathy for you.
Whaaa, welcome to the wonderful world of progressive policy. This is what the majority of the people in the country told you about all along, keep voting em in!
"Some labor unions that enthusiastically backed President Barack Obama's health care overhaul are now frustrated and angry..." Which just goes to show their level of intelligence. You couldn't see this coming when EVERY Republican in this country could? Duh. "Union leaders warn that unless the problem is fixed, there could be consequences for Democrats facing re-election next year." Yeah, right. As long as Democrats keep BORROWING trillions of dollars and STEEERING some of it to unionized government and non-government workers (teachers, government employees, unionized construction workers working on unnecessary "infrastructure" projects, they are all dependent on Obama's borrowing and wasteful spending), unions will continue to support Democrats. Just follow the money trail of corruption and you will see why. Democrats shower unions with taxpayer money, unions collect dues from the workers and use those dues to help Democrats get elected, Democrats shower unions with taxpayer money...rinse and repeat. ""It makes an untruth out of what the president said — that if you like your insurance, you could keep it," said Joe Hansen, president of the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union. "That is not going to be true for millions of workers now."" Duh. YOU WERE TOLD THIS! The Republican Party TOLD YOU THIS in 2009 when Obamacare was debated, in 2010 before AND after it passed into law, in 2011, 2012, and still telling you this in 2013. Clean out your ears and start listening! Why is it that ONLY AFTER THE DAMAGE HAS BEEN DONE do Democrats finally see the light when it is TOO LATE? Senator Max Baucus (D-MT) who steered Obamacare through the legislative process recently called it a "TRAIN WRECK". I guess this is what happens when you follow Nancy Pelosi's advice to pass laws before you know what is in them. Duh. Even though this Obamacare passed into law WITHOUT a single Republican vote because Democrats had such a strong majority they could pass any legislation they wanted, Democrats are blaming Republicans for not cooperating when they had no power to do anything at all. This bill is 100% Democratic Party. More Democrats voted against it than Republicans voted for it (no Republicans voted for it). The only bipartisan support was in opposition!
you live by the sword you die by the sword..
As this disaster unfolds, remember that not a single republican voted for this massive job killing tax.
Obama's signature legislation........I'd say this about sums up his failed presidency.
Well done, voters!
Unions = group think. Not an independent synapse in the lot. You made this mess, you eat it.
Covered California, the agency tasked with constructing and maintaining the Golden State’s insurance marketplace, announced that rates submitted by 13 insurers for the 2014 individual marketplace were far lower than initially expected, ranging from a stunning 29 percent below the current average premium for small business health plans to only two percent above them.
It has been said, but needs to be mentioned again... Well done voters
