There are two big lines forming in Washington DC these days:
1) “I need a waiver” line, approximately 1,500 the last time they counted; and
2) “I am a union leader and I don’t like this law anymore”.
The latest union head to scream “what?” is from Chicago:
“Members of the Chicago-based Service Employees International Union Local 1 have gone on strike over recent job cuts by a janitorial company called Professional Maintenance.
The reason for the cuts? The employer says it is because of the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. This is ironic since SEIU is a major supporter of the law.
Tyler French, Local 1’s organizing director, told Mediatrackers Ohio the company claimed it had to cut its employees’ hours due to Obamacare mandates.”
According to news reports, union leaders have suddenly realized that ObamaCare means that they will lose their plans. After all, isn’t “health benefits” one of the big reasons to join a union?
I have a couple of questions for Mr French and all of the other union leaders who’ve suddenly discovered that ObamaCare stinks:
1) Where were you in 2009 when this law was rushed through Congress?
2) How can you look at your members and defend your support for President Obama, or the man who gave you this law?
I don’t expect union leaders to answer my questions. However, I am hoping that union members do a little “regime change” and get some leaders who read the laws that they support.
Where did the money come from for the unions to reelect President Obama and his ObamaCare? It came from “the dues” that union members pay every month.
Who was looking out for the union members? It wasn’t the leaders who supported ObamaCare!
