" will shatter not only our hard-earned health benefits, but destroy the foundation of the 40 hour work week that is the backbone of the American middle class."They also note that their political darlings are apparently dishonestly leading them on for their own purposes:
" As you both know first-hand, our persuasive arguments have been disregarded and met with a stone wall by the White House and the pertinent agencies. "They've even figured out that they won't get to keep their own health care plans if they like them,
"Our health plans have been built over decades by working men and women. Under the ACA as interpreted by the Administration, our employees will treated differently and not be eligible for subsidies afforded other citizens. As such, many employees will be relegated to second-class status and shut out of the help the law offers to for-profit insurance plans.", with even a glimmering of a hint that the Free Market may have some benefits for workers, they note that,
"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, and will undermine the health-care market of viable alternatives to the big health insurance companies."Though, in the end, demonstrating that they are themselves simply corrupt thugs demanding their share of the loot, they opine,
"We continue to stand behind real health care reform, but the law as it stands will hurt millions of Americans including the members of our respective unions."Isn't that special?
Of course, most of that is what the Tea Party was trying to explain to them back in 2010.
To which we were subjected to slander and even assault. But, out of respect for the Union brotherhood's tightly reasoned and highly principled responses to the Tea Party when we tried explain the '2+2=4's of the world to them, obviously Hoffa and all Union members, and all Union sympathizers, are clearly all ignorant racists and neo-fascists who just hate America and who especially hate America's working class, it's children and the elderly.
Thank you, that is all.
