My heart bleeds for you - why didn't you listen to conservatives before you voted these people in office...

>>>Nearly 10,000 Las Vegas casino workers say they are considering going on strike over what the unpopular Obamacare program has done to their health care insurance.

If contract negotiations to keep their existing benefits go unsettled by March 20, Nevada's biggest union, the Culinary Union Local 226, says it will vote to grant the union the right to strike.

"The biggest hurdle to reaching settlements in Vegas is the new costs imposed on our health plan by Obamacare," Unite Here President Donald Taylor told Buzzfeed. "Even though the president and Congress promised we could keep our health plan, the reality is, unless the law is fixed, that won't be true."

The threat of an almost 10,000-person union strike is merely the latest example of unions' rebuke of Obamacare. Last September, Laborers' International Union of North America (LIUNA) President Terry O'Sullivan told AFL-CIO convention attendees, "We'll be damned if we're going to lose our health insurance because of unintended consequences in the law!"<<<

Hey maybe someday these folks will understand the idea - "If it sounds too good to be true it is a lie".

And liberals wonder why some folks dislike unions - many times they act as lawless THUGS!

>>>After a year-long dispute between a Washington union and United Grain Corp., the National Labor Relations Board is charging union picketers with not only attacking company workers, but with threatening to rape one manager’s daughter and issuing veiled threats to another’s children.

The charges have come a year after wheat exporting company United Grain Corp. in Vancouver, Washington first locked out 44 members of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) in Feb. 2013, after months of “fruitless negotiations” and allegations that a union member sabotaged company equipment, spawning the escalating fight. In a filing with the NLRB last week, National Labor Relations Board regional director Ronald Hooks accused the longshoremen of a laundry list of violent and dangerous tactics.

Local 4 members “threatened to rape the daughter of one of the employer’s managers” and implied threats to a manager’s children, chillingly telling the manager that they would “see his children at school” and asking, “Are your children okay today?”

Hooks also charged union members with following through with physical harm against company workers. Local 4 picketers caused a security officer’s leg to be pinned under a moving vehicle; shone spotlights into vehicles coming in and out of United Grain’s terminal, comprising drivers’ vision and causing permanent eye injury to one security officer; and recklessly pursuing United Grain vans.<<<As far as I'm concerned these people should be thrown in jail and the door welded shut.

If someone threatens to harm your child are you justified in "removing" the threat?

This is exactly why Obama gave a 2 year waiver for future victims of his signature Legislation.

The sick part is that it will actually work -- they will feel safe, then vote Democrat pure, then get hit later -- and will say "heeyyyyyy, I thought you had our backs!"

They will be angry for a minute, then vote Democrat pure again!

EZExit, "Democrats in vulnerable positions are running away from ObamaCare© like it was the bubonic plaque."

Maybe ObamaCare© will protect the Democrats from the PLAGUE!

The unions should be OK until at least 2016, as Obama has already signed an executive order changing ObamaCare© yet again, or he will in the near future, in order to wipe away all requirements for them, until the next general election. This is designed to try and minimize the blowback from frustrated voters in regards to the wreckage of the ObamaCare© law. Democrats in vulnerable positions are running away from ObamaCare© like it was the bubonic plaque.

The biggest reason the Unions are NOW hating it. Is because they tell their workers that they have to pay dues and get sh!tty pay because insurance was too high. Now since ACA, that changes how much people have to pay for Insurance and who pays for it...lol. Now the workers will want more pay and more hours. So the Unions are scrambling to fix the storm they help create..lol << Knows because I work for the Teamsters..lol

After their blind support of Obamacare and the Democrats who supported it. Unions started getting warnings that they were on the receiving end of a raw deal over a year ago.

31 Jan 13, Labor Unions Finally Read Obamacare Fine Print, Realize Costs Set To Spike, "Turn Sour" On Obama

Slowly they stated to realizes that free healthcare had to be paid for by someone and they were going to be the ones paying. So what did they do? The tried to change the law to benefit themselves. The rest of us still have to pay.


I say let the unions face the ramifications of the law just like the rest of use. They wanted this they pushed for it and they spent millions promoting it. Now they don’t like it.

TO BAD LIVE WITH IT!

nstrdnvstr, "So NOW they are worried about the lie because it will affect them?

They didn't seem to care about it last year, did they?"

Did you notice how they still cannot be honest?

Rather than blaming Obama for "Obama"Care, the blame some amorphic "Congress". They don't even blame the "Democrat" Congress, they just blame "Congress"!

ROTFL

It just seems to prove once again you cannot be honest even when reality smacks you in the face!

Union critters - it is OBAMA and DEMOCRATS that have done this to you!

Well, how about the rest of the unintended consequences of electing an idiot to be president? Sure this bonehead law affects you directly, but how about all the other moronic things that Obozo has done that affects others? You're only concerned when it affects YOUR bottom line, aren't you???

The 'pull quote' out of the story is ....

""The biggest hurdle to reaching settlements in Vegas is the new costs imposed on our health plan by Obamacare," Unite Here President Donald Taylor told Buzzfeed. "Even though the president and Congress promised we could keep our health plan, the reality is, unless the law is fixed, that won't be true." "

No, "Congress" did NOT promise it.

The Republicans warned against it.

Obama and the Democrats promised it.

And once again, they LIED!

Serves them right!

Watch Obama give them another one of his "exemptions" until AFTER he is out of office!
