Union bosses fought tooth and nail to nationalize America’s health care—even, in many cases, to the detriment of their own members. Now, instead of chewing on and swallowing what they bit off, unions are getting waivers to the very plan that they shoved down everyone else’s throat.
Here’s the list of known unions* getting ObamaCare waivers:
Service Employees Benefit Fund
UFCW Allied Trade Health & Welfare Trust
Asbestos Workers Local 53 Welfare Fund
Plumbers & Pipefitters Local 123 Welfare Fund
UFCW Local 227
UFCW Maximus Local 455
Local 25 SEIU
UFCW Local 1262
Local 802 Musicians Health Fund
Greater Metropolitan Hotel
Local 17 Hospitality Benefit Fund
UFT Welfare Fund
*Several other entities appear to be joint union-employer benefit plans, but it is unclear if this assumption is correct, so only the known union plans are listed above.
While some of us are seeing our health care costs go through the roof, union bosses are getting waivers. This isn’t just wrong, it is grossly hypocritical.

ABC clearly tried to make all the candidates look bad, and the bad blood between the candidates left over from Iowa meant that they just did not care about showing any level of solidarity against the media, as they often do. Christie successfully tore down Marco Rubio for the first hour of the debate, | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES The New Hampshire debate on ABC was an absolute ****show from start to finish. However, there were a few candidates who came across as ready to lead, and there were candidates who took this debate as merely a placeholder until South Carolina and beyond. The governors on the stage, however, looked like actual grown-ups tonight. Jeb Bush finally wins | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES The first half of this debate has been an absolute trainwreck. Almost everyone on the stage (with the possible exceptions of Jeb Bush and Ted Cruz) has come off as more unlikeable than they were when they started. The Federalist’s Sean Davis I think has the best summary of the first half of the debate tonight and what is | Read More »
