ObamaCare Buyer’s Remorse

In Uncategorized on April 20, 2013 at 12:36 am

The Administration’s implemenation of “ObamaCare” is proving problematic.  Some unions are not turning against the very law they once supported.  See this link for a detailed story: http://finance.yahoo.com/news/unions-grow-wary-health-law-034700539.html

The International Union of Operating Engineers Local 150 of Countryside, Ill., which represents construction workers and insures about 65,000 people, is also examining whether some lower-earning workers would eventually be better off leaving the union-sponsored plan and instead getting federally subsidized insurance.

 

“I’ve told my members, as this evolves, your health care will not look like it does today,” said James Sweeney, president and business manager of the local. “I have to cut it back.”

One of the laws’ architects, Sen. Max Baucus (D-MT), told HHS head Sebelius he sees “a huge train wreck coming down” because of Administration implementation failures.  (see  http://www.politico.com/story/2013/04/max-baucus-stirring-controversy-on-all-sides-90295.html#ixzz2QycKQV7Z)
