Schadenfreude is not the nicest of emotions. But, sometimes, like a biting drink of liquor, it can be deeply satisfying.


A Resolution Urging the President and Congress to Uphold Their Promise for Unions to Keep their Current Healthcare Plans Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA)

...WHEREAS, we supported the ACA because it was in the interests of the uninsured to secure many of the benefits our union members already had under our Taft-Hartley Plans, and
furthermore the President said in no uncertain terms that we would be able to keep our
current health care plans as currently managed;


WHEREAS, for two years we have sought from the Administration and Congress
interpretations to the ACA that merely allows us keep the health plans we currently have:
nothing more, nothing less. No special treatment. To date, the Administration has postured on
proposals to address the problem, but no proposal to date will actually solve the problem. Our
health plans only get worse;


WHEREAS, as a result of Administration inaction to fix the problem, the unintended
consequences of the ACA will lead to the destruction of the 40 hour work week, higher taxes
and force union members onto more costly plans -- eventually destroying the Taft-Hartley
Funds completely;

WHEREAS, we are only looking to keep the healthcare plans we have. Nothing more. Nothing
less. We are not asking for any special treatment, no additions to what is currently provided by
our Taft-Hartley Plans, merely to be allowed to keep the plans we have worked hard to secure
for the 65 years we have been governed by the Taft-Hartley law...
BawaAAAHAHAHAAHA :lamo


These guys apparently just assumed that being a core democratic constituency meant that Obamacares' obvious consequences just wouldn't apply to you :mrgreen:
