    July 2013 Hoffa along with other union leaders writes letter to Reid Pelosi and states "And finally, even though non-profit plans like ours won’t receive the same subsidies as for-profit plans, they’ll be taxed to pay for those subsidies. Taken together, these restrictions will make non-profit plans like ours unsustainable"

    But why talk about this when we can be talking about who is the best employer, or how many beers we drank last night. Single payer is on its way folks.

    Why do Union people keep putting this clown in office? Work hard, make profit, share in that profit by keeping together. What business is it of the government how much our company pays for employee's benefits?

    When Obamacare was forced through into law the unions were promised they wouldn't be subject to that 40% tax (which is logical since non profit plans get no subsidies). The media tries to make it sound like private union plans were getting a special break by not being taxed without mentioning they also would get no subsidies. Its not like public sector plans (which Obama DID give special treatment). Another broken promise. And union leaders sold out the members by supporting it until now when the bills are coming due.
  4. Probably the same reason why Hoffa is still in office!

    Times are changing. This isn't the 50s 60s 70s 80s 90s no more. Evolve or become extinct.

    You're absolutely right. Obamacare is definetely a step in the wrong direction, we need to evolve... not devolve
