Last year, the AFL-CIO thugs wailed over the fact that ObamaCare will affect them as badly as everyone else.
Now, Unite Here, a hospitality industry union representing workers in the U.S. and Canada, has released a report stating the obvious about ObamaCare’s income inequality:
The Irony of ObamaCare: Making Inequality Worse
The promise of Obamacare was the right one and the hope for extending healthcare coverage to the un-and under-insured a step in the right direction. Yet the unintended consequences will hit the average, hard-working American where it hurts: in the wallet. Currently a national dialogue is emerging by all political parties on the issue of income inequality. That is a debate worth having.
The White House and Congressional Democrats are “resetting” the domestic agenda following the negative fallout from the rollout of the ACA. They plan to shift focus from health care to bread and butter issues of income inequality that have eroded the American paycheck for decades.
Ironically, the Administration’s own signature healthcare victory poses one of the most immediate challenges to redressing inequality. Yes, the Affordable Care Act will help many more Americans gain some health insurance coverage, a significant step forward for equality. At the same time, without smart fixes, the ACA threatens the middle class with higher premiums, loss of hours, and a shift to part-time work and less comprehensive coverage.
Except that there’s absolutely nothing in ObamaCare that will “help many more Americans gain some health insurance coverage”, especially when they’re being dropped by the millions.
Their angst could have been avoided if they actually read the ObamaCare bill and realized the consequences of ramming a socialist train wreck like that through Congress. The premium hikes, the Death Panels, the unsustainable cost, the penalties, and the strain it will put on employers never penetrated their thick skulls until reality bit them in the ass.
Well assholes, you’ve reaped what you’ve sown. Sucks to be you.
