It was only a matter of time before Obama would offer concessions to the unions that have been making noise about the horrors of Obamacare. This was especially evident after the AFL-CIO this week approved a resolution calling Obamacare "highly disruptive" to union plans.
Obviously, the unions are slow learners in that most rational people knew that Obamacare was going to be a disaster--even before it was enacted.
To quiet their protests, it is rumored that Obama is prepared to offer union workers subsidies to help pay for their health insurance even if they're covered through their jobs! What does that mean? That means that even if a union member receives health care coverage through his employer, he would be eligible to receive an Obamacare subsidy to offset the price he pays. Union members will be the only people granted this perk. So, if you're not in a union, you will still be responsible for paying your entire premium.
If you're sick of being treated like a second-class citizen because you're not in a union, contact your Senators and your House rep to let them know you support the actions that several politicians are taking to stop the proposed granting of subsidies to union members.
Who do you suppose will shoulder the burden of paying the annual $16 billion cost of the Obamacare union subsidy?
