White House Considers Awarding Obamacare Subsidies, Intended For The Uninsured, To Labor Unions

A few weeks ago, I discussed the fact that labor unions have been increasingly vocal about their objections to certain provisions of the Affordable Care Act. Obamacare will “shatter not only our hard-earned health benefits, but destroy the foundation of the 40 hour work week that is the backbone of the American middle class,” wrote three labor leaders in July. Now, according to a report from InsideHealthPolicy, the Obama administration is considering offering insurance subsidies—intended for the uninsured—to labor union members who already have employer-sponsored coverage.

looks like to me a pay off to make the Unions shut the hell with their negativity towards Obama care in get then back in line with their support

Gosh! You mean when we passed the bill so we could find out what was in it, it turns out that royal power to decide who gets subsidies was left to whatever pharaoh occupies the White House at the moment? Silly me, I thought legislation was the job of Congress.
