Unions are calling for repeal of Obamacare

Three unions have called for repeal or complete rework of Obamacare. Their workers are subject to reduced hours in order so their employers can avoid Obama's requirements and penalties. They are predicting __

[Sound of crickets] Did you hear about this on the news?

The Hill names the unions:

The United Food and Commercial Workers International Union (UFCW) — a 1.3 million-member labor group that twice endorsed Obama for president — is very worried about how the reform law will affect its members’ healthcare plans.

Last month, the president of the United Union of Roofers, Waterproofers and Allied Workers released a statement calling “for repeal or complete reform of the Affordable Care Act.”

UNITE HERE, a prominent hotel workers’ union, and the International Brotherhood of Teamsters are also pushing for changes.

One union president says Obama did not fulfill his famous promise:

In a new op-ed published in The Hill, UFCW President Joe Hansen homed in on the president’s speech at the 2009 AFL-CIO convention. Obama at the time said union members could keep their insurance under the law, but Hansen writes “that the president’s statement to labor in 2009 is simply not true for millions of workers.”

These unions all supported ObamaCare. Maybe they didn't know what its over one thousand pages contained. No one else did.
