The Presidential Administration of Barack H. Obama always looks out for the little guy. They strike him center of mass. They then back up the yuppified SUV and run him over several more times. You gotta’ get the job done right to succeed in DC these days.
Now that was just plain cynical. It was also mean. So mean that three of sleaziest leaders of organized thuggerylabor agree with my assessment. At least they agree with it as applied to the American Affordable Care Act of 2009. Having finally figured out what the right has been telling them for years, these wise men wrote leading minions of Emperor Barack I a missive to plead for a writ of indulgence with respect to the terrible, unworkable, destructive legislation that we all affectionately refer to as Obamacare.
It seems these gentlemen have just now discovered what Lady Pelosi meant by having to pass the bill to find out what is in it. Show ‘em what they win, Dom Pardo! According to the unionists, here’s what their glorious Obamacare prize-package includes :
Right now, unless you and the Obama Administration enact an equitable fix, the ACA will shatter not only our hard-earned health benefits, but destroy the foundation of the 40 hour work week that is the backbone of the American middle class.
Oh, come on! Suck it up, you flippin’ losers. I thought you union boys had awesome disability pensions. Here’s why I genuinely believe you had all this coming to you and a portion more. You fought for it. You earned it. As John Lennon once sardonically sang “Take this, brother, may it serve you well.”
After all, few people worked as hard to give BHO the power he needed to enact Obamacare.
We have been strong supporters of the notion that all Americans should have access to quality, affordable health care. We have also been strong supporters of you. In campaign after campaign we have put boots on the ground, gone door-to-door to get out the vote, run phone banks and raised money to secure this vision.
And now he just isn’t that into them. It’s so gosh-darn pathetic that it seems post-coital. How was it Andrew Dice Clay once put it? “I’m finished!”
Since the ACA was enacted, we have been bringing our deep concerns to the Administration, seeking reasonable regulatory interpretations to the statute that would help prevent the destruction of non-profit health plans. As you both know first-hand, our persuasive arguments have been disregarded and met with a stone wall by the White House and the pertinent agencies. This is especially stinging because other stakeholders have repeatedly received successful interpretations for their respective grievances.
So The Boss Man created an incentive to drop work hours under thirty per week. The union plans will not be given the government subsidy that everyone is currently able to lie about their income and qualify for. Heck, the union plans will even be taxed! They are looking to Senator Harry Reid and Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi to make sure some changes get made? Why bless their hearts!
I guess we could describe this tragic set of circumstances as Moriarty would below…
There’s a lesson to be learned from all this sadness. It reminds me of an old nursery rhyme. Something about “you knew I was a scorpion when you gave me a ride.” So organized labor has just been totally employedused. I should have a heart and feel for James Hoffa*. But I can’t for some reason. As I read through this sad and heartsick letter of love lost and betrayed my initial thought was this. “It’s Constitutional, B——!”
