Labor Unions Suffer Buyer's Remorse on Obamacare

Ad Feedback

A key ally in the Obama administration's successful fight to pass health care reform is now suffering buyer's remorse.

Labor unions helped elect Democrats to Congress and fought alongside the president to make Obamacare the law of the land.

Now, leaders of three major labor unions say that was a mistake.

Teamster President James Hoffa joined two others representing millions of workers in the textile, gaming, food, airport, and hotel industries.

"The law as it stands will hurt millions of Americans, including the members of our respective unions," they wrote in a letter to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev.

They cited "unintended consequences," including an incentive for employers to keep work hours below 30 hours a week, costing workers health care benefits and more money on pay day.

Phil Kerpen, president of American Commitment, shared his thoughts on why the unions are critical of Obamacare, on CBN News Channel Morning News, July 17.
