Unions now Questioning Obamacare due to Rising Healthcare Costs

In an interesting turnaround, many unions are now questioning the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, saying that implementing the Act will raise costs and make union workers less competitive. You can read the Wall Street Journal article at http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887323854904578260313912570432.html

Why You Should Care

Wow, did you see this one coming? In a classic case of not reading the fine print, one of the largest pro-Obamacare blocks, Labor, is now questioning the benefits of healthcare reform and is demanding federal subsidies to help them pay for the rising costs associated with implementation of Obamacare for their membership. 

I find myself simply shaking my head in disbelief as I read this article. We force through a bill that no one in Congress has read, supported wholeheartedly by Labor, and now they want the government to help them pay for it. Are you serious? Have we reached the peak of insanity yet? Maybe labor unions will start to picket the White House?
