Union That Supported ObamaCare Now Calls For Its Repeal

This is from the Washington Wire:

A labor union representing roofers is reversing course and calling for repeal of the federal health law, citing concerns the law will raise its cost for insuring members.

Organized labor was instrumental in getting the Affordable Care Act passed in 2010, but more recently has voiced concerns that the law could lead members to lose their existing health plans. The United Union of Roofers, Waterproofers and Allied Workers is believed to be the first union to initially support the law and later call for its repeal.

The Union’s statement, which can be found here, in part reads:

United Union of Roofers, Waterproofers and Allied Workers International President Kinsey M. Robinson issued the following statement today calling for a repeal or complete reform of President Obama’s Affordable Care Act (ACA):

“Our Union and its members have supported President Obama and his Administration for both of his terms in office.

But regrettably, our concerns over certain provisions in the ACA have not been addressed, or in some instances, totally ignored. In the rush to achieve its passage, many of the Act’s provisions were not fully conceived, resulting in unintended consequences that are inconsistent with the promise that those who were satisfied with their employer sponsored coverage could keep it.

In a perverse sort of way, it’s funny that people actually believed Barack Obama when he said “If you like your insurance plan, you can keep your insurance plan.”

Now the lie comes home to roost.

Unions, you got what your deserved.

    This whole thing is snowballing.
    The infighting over this among moonbats has begun.
    I’ll bet good money the ACA will be a center piece of any liberal loyalists campaign mantra who strays from the collective idiocy.
    I’m not saying they’ll stray from the idea of socialized medicine. But I have no doubt they’ll promise that they can construct an better socialist bill.
    Yeah, I know, “better socialist” is a bit of an oxymoron, but I’m sure you know what I mean.

    I know what you mean, my brother. And I completely agree with your comment.
