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.

Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES New Orleans has a habit, it seems, of being ignored by the press. At least, ignored when it comes to mass shootings. Or this case, attempted mass shooting. You may remember that, back in November, there was a mass shooting in the city which received virtually no national press. Now we have a story where not only did someone | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Hillary Clinton is the ultimate Washington DC insider. She has been there for over 20 years. She was a first lady. Then she was a Senator. Then she ran for President. Then she was a lousy secretary of state. Then she went and made tens of millions of dollars giving speeches thanks in large part to her status as | Read More »
