Aw! Dick Trumka Is Still Upset About Obamacare


Dick Trumka

I’d like to say I feel bad for AFL-CIO boss Dick Trumka (I know, he goes by Richard, but I think Dick is more apt) not liking Obamacare, but I really don’t feel bad for him at all. All of the unions were shills for this rotten law, and now they’re whining. Maybe Dick Trumka is upset about losing 40,000 dues paying Longshoremen. Who knows. I guess he’s just trying to put pressure on the administration to give the unions the subsidies that were supposed to go to the uninsured.

So anyway, old Dick was whining about how Obamacare is making employers cut employee hours. As if that’s something new.

The Affordable Care Act does need some modifications to it, because as it does right now, what’s happening is, you have employers that the law says if you pay your, if your employees work 30 hours or more a week, you’ve got to give them healthcare. So they’re restructuring their workforce to give workers 29 and a half hours so they don’t have to provide them healthcare. They’re also doing some taxing to nonprofit plans to pay for for-profit plans.
