Jenny EriksonSEIU (Service Employees International Union) has spent millions of dollars getting Barack Obama and other Democrats elected. The famously left-wing labor union supported the presidential candidate that was going to pay Peggy Su’s mortgage and put gas in her car.
Unions are all about the little people.
One of Obama’s biggest campaign promises was for health care reform, specifically universal health care. It works so well in Canada, after all. SEIU openly supported Obama in the 2008 Presidential election.
Obama was elected, everyone partied (and left their litter behind), and everyone waited for change to come to America. In one of the few campaign promises that the President has actually kept, he signed into law a bill that would transform our health care system into a nationalized one.
Be careful what you wish for. Since ObamaCare passed last March, small businesses have dropped health care coverage for their employees while big businesses got special exemptions, and drug relabeling has discriminated against women with cancer. Taxes have gone up, and will continue to do so.
The latest atrocity of Obama’s health care law is coverage for children being dropped. SIEU can no longer afford to cover the children of 30,000 low-wage families.
From the Wall Street Journal:
One of the largest union-administered health-insurance funds in New York is dropping coverage for the children of more than 30,000 low-wage home attendants, union officials said. The union blamed financial problems it said were caused by the state’s health department and new national health-insurance requirements.
Yet somehow it’s the Republicans that want you to die quickly? Republicans don’t care about taking care of sick children? That is simply not true. Republicans were the ones that fought against a bill that they knew would kill a company’s ability to provide adequate coverage for its employees. SEIU lobbied for the very bill that has now caused them to drop coverage for thousands of poor children.
Who doesn’t care about sick kids now?
