Poetic justice. IRS UNION WANTS OUT OF OBAMACARE

This is too funny. The IRS Employee UNION (those people who wanted Obamacare) that represents the IRS (those people who collect the Obamacare tax) WANTS OUT OF OBAMACARE.

From the Forbes Magazine website:

IRS Employees Union Is 'Very Concerned' About Being Required To Enroll In Obamacare's Health Insurance Exchanges
by Avik Roy, Contributor

"In the private sector, many workers are concerned about losing their employer-sponsored health insurance coverage, and being dumped into Obamacare’s subsidized insurance exchanges. Two weeks ago, representatives of three large labor unions fired off a harsh letter to Democratic leaders in Congress, complaining that Obamacare would “shatter…our hard-earned health benefits” and create “nightmare scenarios” for their members. Today, we learn that the National Treasury Employees Union—the union that includes employees of the Internal Revenue Service—is asking its members to write letters to their Congressmen, stating that they are “very concerned” about legislative efforts requiring IRS and Treasury employees to enroll in the Obamacare exchanges."

"“I am a federal employee and one of your constituents,” the letter begins. “I am very concerned about legislation that has been introduced by Congressman Dave Camp to push federal employees out of the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program (FEHBP) and into the insurance exchanges established under the Affordable Care Act (ACA).”"

It makes me furious that these unions were supporters of Obamacare--and now they're waking-up to the facts that people who had a clue knew years ago. I hope these union members languish in the inferior system that Obamacare will bring. The sad part is that this will have no effect on the unions blindly backing liberals in the future.

Whoopie fuckin do, what are you going to do about it, beat your wife up some more?

I think this is a reflection of the ignorance of union leadership and membership. Union leaders are sheep who follow Democrats and union membership are sheep who follow their leaders. There's typically not a lot of intellectual energy flowing through a labor union. Give the members some signs, tell them what to chant, tell them where to stand, preferably give them some money, and you've got an instant protest.

Although it's against most of our natures to think this way, we have to come to accept that some people don't have the motivation and/or the ability to get ahead on their own. They rely on the government and unions to support them. Let those people dig their own holes--just stay out-of-their-way. Don't give them a second thought, try to create a life where you won't have to cross their paths (the best way to avoid frustration), and enjoy!

"There's typically not a lot of intellectual energy flowing through a labor union."

LOL'd at that one. Gotta remember to repeat it elsewhere.

Is not a lot different than Ron Burgundy reading news feed. Whatever is on the little vote sheet they're handed gets voted for. I would doubt they even look at it any other time than when they're at the voting booth. Saves from having to go thru that painful thought process which is baaaaad...

Don't blame me,
I didn't vote for a
socialist.

Those who are in the checkout generation couldn't give a damn about Obamacare.

Who are not in the check out generation won't give a damn because they think they don't need Obamacare at this time. Their money will not be there.

I don't give a damn about it, either.
