More Liberal Defectors From Obamacare: This Time, Itís Unions

05.21.13 01:53 PM

Organized labor leaders are the latest in a growing group of liberal special interests to take a pass on President Barack Obamaís Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

The president of a labor union representing the construction trade called on the repeal of Obamacare in its entirety last month. Now, bosses with the 1.3 million-member United Food and Commercial Workers International Union (UFCW) are fretting over how to integrate increased Obamacare insurance costs into its membersí health care plans.

UFCW president Joe Hansen recently wrote a guest column for The Hill, essentially accusing Obama of lying when, in 2009, he promised unions their employees would be able to keep their existing insurance under Obamacare.

ď[T]he presidentís statement to labor in 2009 is simply not true for millions of workers,Ē said Hansen. ďYou canít have the same quality healthcare that you had before, despite what the president said.Ē
