Union Bosses: 'ObamaCare Will Destroy Health of Americans'
Union bosses are speaking out against ObamaCare. Yes, you read that correctly. Three major unions, including the Teamsters, all previously supported the Affordable Care Act.
In an open letter, James P. Hoffa, Joseph Hansen and D. Taylor wrote: “Right now, unless you and the Obama Administration enact an equitable fix, the ACA 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.”
It went on to state, “We can no longer stand silent in the face of elements of the Affordable Care Act that will destroy the very health and wellbeing of our members along with millions of other hardworking Americans.”
Tucker Carlson reacted to the powerful statement, saying, “If that had been Rush Limbaugh saying that, people would be saying it’s an overstatement, he’s a right-wing talk show host. These are union bosses saying ObamaCare is going to destroy workers!”
Just last week, the Obama administration delayed the insurance mandate for employers until 2015. This outraged some Republican members of Congress who are arguing that the individual mandate should be eradicated.
