Unions balk at Obamacare
Posted by Staff

Today, Breitbart reported fantastic news for the American worker and Conservatives across the country who have worked tirelessly to defund and repeal Obamacare. In a stunning turn of events, 40,000 members of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union “announced that they have formally ended their association with the AFL-CIO… citing Obamacare and immigration reform as two important causes of their disaffiliation.”

ILWU President Robert McEllrath was quoted as saying, "President Obama ran on a platform that he would not tax medical plans and at the 2009 AFL-CIO Convention, you [AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka] stated that labor would not stand for a tax on our benefits.” In fact, Obama supported such a tax and Trumka failed to stand up against the push for taxes on benefits. 

Democrats should be extremely wary. The wheels are coming off on Obamacare and it's only a matter of time before they feel the wrath of the American people.
