    and why ? their Caddilac health plans will be getting taxed and AFL CIO supported Obamacare. of course they are also unhappy with Obama but its kind of ironic that organized labor is fractioning further and specifically due to liberal policy.

    You can’t give everyone a waiver or exemption on the ACA otherwise it’s going to collapse even faster than planned – and without setting up the argument that single payer is the ‘only’ possible solution.

    The young aren’t going to participate in the numbers to make it close to working. One of the only areas where there are sufficient numbers to bridge that gap comes from union members. They are being tossed under the bus by Obama and Sebelius ‘for the greater good’ – because when push comes to shove, they are taking for granted that the unions will continue to donate and vote progressive.

    The unions and their corrupt leadership don’t like being tossed under the bus – it’s costing them real money. The rank and file are being screwed – but it’s not going to get much uglier and the unions will still line up to push the bankrupt progressive agenda in 2014.

    I think the union goons are hearing their death knell.

    They've lost membership in states that are going to "right to work", like in WI, cities are going bankrupt because of unfunded pensions, businesses are closing or moving out of the country or to other states because of them too.

    We need a "happy dance" smiley. :D
