Well, at least these aren't the guys are only just now figuring all this out instead of, oh, say, 12 months ago.

In a letter sent to President Barack Obama on Thursday, Laborers International Union of North America President Terry O’Sullivan wrote that the law has “destructive consequences” for the types of health plans that cover millions of unionized construction workers and their family members.

The letter follows a separate one written last week by the heads of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, the United Food and Commercial Workers and Unite Here, expressing similar concerns to Congress’s top Democrats, Sen. Harry Reid and Rep.Nancy Pelosi. The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers took out print ads raising alarms about the law last week as well....

Mr. O’Sullivan concluded: “Approximately 3 million laborers, retirees, and their families now face the very real prospect of losing their health benefits. This, I must remind you, was something that you promised would not happen.”....

I think it was National Reviews' Jim Gerharty who first pointed out that All Obama's Promises Come With An Expiration Date?

THose people need to be kicked off there over priced plans so the rest of us can have HC too.

See when you have the few paying GUCCI prices for a product, there is no reason to sell it to the 99% at lower prices........

HC is not a fashon item or luxury. It is a basic human need we have a RIGHT too.
