they still get it wrong.Longshoremen Union Leaves AFL-CIO for Supporting ObamaCare
04 September 2013
Citing ObamaCare and immigration reform, the 40,000-strong International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) has ended its affiliation with the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFLCIO), one of the largest private-sector unions in the United States....
In a recent letter to AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, ILWU President Robert McEllrath laid out a number of reasons for their departure from the large union federation, but among one of the more notable grievances was the AFL-CIOs continued support for ObamaCare. The letter reads, in part:
"The ILWU has also become increasingly frustrated with the Federations moderate, overly compromising policy positions on such important matters as immigration, labor law reform, health care reform, and international labor issues. We feel the Federation has done a great disservice to the labor movement and all working people by going along to get along."
out of three pages the longshoremen complain about turf wars for two of those pages.
then the hack author claims Obamacares and immigration are the notable parts.
yep if you want to slant a story to fit the right wing.
in the letter international labor issues hold the same prominence as immigration and healthcare reform.
naturally the right wing hacks will cherry pick and inflate what they want.
while your at it
the author of the hack piece,
"Brian Koenig is a freelance journalist for The New American and conservative blogger and columnist who has been published in Real Clear Politics, Daily Caller, American Thinker"
hardly an unbiased source.
