    "Labor leaders who have spent months lobbying unsuccessfully for special protections under the Affordable Care Act warned this week that the White House’s continued refusal to help is dampening union support for Democratic candidates in this year’s midterm elections."

    But here's the statement that made me sit back and ultimately create this thread:
    "Leaders of two major unions, including the first to endorse Obama in 2008, said they have been betrayed by an administration that wooed their support for the 2009 legislation with promises to later address the peculiar needs of union-negotiated insurance plans that cover millions of workers.

    Their complaints reflect a broad sense of disappointment among many labor leaders, who say the Affordable Care Act has subjected union health plans to new taxes and mandates while not allowing them to share in the subsidies that have gone to private insurance companies competing on the newly created exchanges.

    Welcome to Obama's America, union members! This is who and what you supported and voted for. Now you have to live with it like the rest of us.

    The Obama Justice Department is nothing more than an agent of the democrat party.

    No meaningful investigation of this administration on any matter will take place while Obama is in office.

    Only in the Great Pretender's America could people who earn at least $25 an hour regardless of what trade we're talking about expect a "president" from the Democratic Party to make them eligible for subsidies intended for "low income" uninsureds.
