Unite Here, the first national union to endorse then-Senator Obama, has released a report entitled “The Irony of ObamaCare: Making inequality worse.” The devastating 12-page report says Obamacare will transfer a billion dollars in wealth to insurance companies and force employers to dramatically cut hours, which will result in pay decreases.
“Only in Washington could asking the bottom of the middle class to finance health care for the poorest families be seen as reducing inequality,” states the 12-page report. “Without smart fixes, the ACA threatens the middle class with higher premiums, loss of hours, and a shift to part-time work and less comprehensive coverage.”
“Ironically, the Administration’s own signature healthcare victory poses one of the most immediate challenges to redressing inequality,” the Unite Here report continues. “We take seriously the promise that ‘if you like your health plan, you can keep it. Period.’ UNITE HERE members like their health plans.”
Unite Here is a national union that represents 300,000 low-wage hospitality workers.
The new report also features photos and first-person testimonials of union members describing how Obamacare is personally punishing them and their families. Ironically, these are the exact same stories that Democratic Senator Harry Reid recently described as “all untrue.”
Unite Here is not alone in its opposition to Obamacare. Just 38% of Americans support the law, according to the latest RealClearPolitics average of polls.
