Roofers union calls for Obamacare’s repeal
United Union of Roofers, Waterproofers and Allied Workers International President Kinsey M. Robinson:
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.Who could have seen that coming?
These provisions jeopardize our multi-employer health plans, have the potential to cause a loss of work for our members, create an unfair bidding advantage for those contractors who do not provide health coverage to their workers, and in the worst case, may cause our members and their families to lose the benefits they currently enjoy as participants in multi-employer health plans.
Oh, yeah - millions of us.
Frankly, there's a certain amount of pleasure to be derived from watching those who worked to foist this monstrosity upon come to grips with the innumerable (and easily forseeable, and forseen) downsides. One just wishes that they hadn't had to take the rest of us along on this ride...
