Unite Here, a union that represents service industry workers, has released a pretty blistering report condemning Obamacare. The report itself is not particularly interesting; its economic analysis is a mishmash of dubious claims and complaints about giving money to insurers but not to unions. On the other hand, the existence of this report is very interesting indeed -- the miracle is not how well the bear dances but that it dances at all. The spectacle tells you a lot about the politics of the Affordable Care Act and the modern Democratic Party.

In the interest of full disclosure, I should note that my father oversaw labor negotiations for years in his role as the head of a construction trade association, and I believe he still sits on the pension board of a union. I have learned a lot about multiemployer plans from him over the years. However, I did not consult him about this post. From which you may infer that I should call my father more often, and right you are. Sorry, Dad.

But I digress.

Notwithstanding my reservations about the quality of this report, unions actually do have three big problems with Obamacare. As the Official Blog Spouse has chronicled, Obamacare has made things hard for the multiemployer health plans that many unions offer:

Wow, so it's been dwindled down to this? Do you REALLY want to talk about Obama misspeaking after 8 years of GW Bush bumbling around? Hell, the man gave an unwanted neck massage to a German chancellor!

Palin, May 31: "Look at the debt that has been accumulated in the last two years. It's more debt under this president than all those other presidents combined." -Sarah Palin

The public debt on Jan. 20, 2009, when Obama took office was $6.3 trillion. So "all those other presidents combined" were responsible for $6.3 trillion in debt. Under Obama, it has grown by $3.4 trillion to $9.7 trillion, as of May 27, the most recent figures available. The debt is certainly a major issue these days — Democrats and Republicans are still wrangling over spending and the debt ceiling. But Palin is off by SEVERAL TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS.
The national debt now stands at @18 trillion dollars. Look it up

On the drop down enter the school district and you can see how much the teachers earn in salary only. This doesn't include all the other benefits they get for life.

Bill Clinton gave a lot more than an unwanted neck massage to a couple ladies.

It's funny how the democrats will brush-off Obama's flubs as "misspeaks" that aren't worthy of a second glance, but Palin's and Bush's misspeaks are proof positive that they're too dumb to fight their way out of a wet paper sack.

The part that makes it all so hilarious is that Obama was sold as the polished, intelligent, clean, articulate gentleman that Bush supposedly wasn't. He was the man who had a self-proclaimed gift for speaking. Haha

I'm quite familiar with the typical liberal tactic of attacking the messenger and not the message. I'm also familiar with the liberal thinking which is Democrats are never wrong. Being a Democrat means never having to say you were wrong.
Whatever MSM tells you is the complete truth and whatever they ignore that Fox and others covers is not worth your time. Fast and Furious, Benghazi, Lois Lerner, forget about it. All those other defectors lie. March in lockstep and keep your head buried in the sand. A closed mind is a terrible thing to waste.
You even think that you save time if you don't rewind that DVD before you return it. It's been proven over and over and over and over again about Issa's one sided, multi-millions of wasted dollars little witch hunts. Even Fux's own Chris Wallace busted Issa on Benghazi on the March 2nd "Fox News Sunday." But that goes against all the lies you eat up as the truth.

There is a reason why Obama misspeaking about the number of states is your "go to" f*up, and all you have to do is close your eyes and point to find Bush talking like an inbred moron. Also, there's that whole "Obama was actually elected" thing. Bush? Not so much. I wonder if you guys would be "outraged" if Obama's election came down to Leftwing lawyers being flown to Chicago and his brother being Governor of Illinois? Oh the tyranny.

We get it. It's because he's black and won't spit in the faces of the founders of this nation by catering to your specific religion. Believe me. ALL of America get's it.(Also see last two presidential elections)

"Reagan Taught us Deficits Don't Matter"-Dick "Halliburton War Bucks" Cheney

It's almost as if the more our country grows in population, the more each president is responsible for spending to maintain our government. Any moron could figure that out. Now about Bush's free war that you guys always seem to overlook. Go look up how much Cheney's daughter made off of our troops needlessly dying in Iraq. Now let's imagine the "outrage" you would all feel if a black man did it. 87% of all our nation's debt was accumulated on the GOP's watch. Where's your "outrage" on that one, boy? Step aside. Lawrence Welk fans. You had your big day in the sun and our nation is still digging itself out of it.(Also see why you will NEVER be relevant in this country again)

Get it right, lil' Putin fan.

The founders ... you mean those powdered-wig idiots you have so much respect for?

Did Algore represent himself during the election lawsuits? Hardly. And as for Obama's re-election, he used the IRS to intimidate conservative groups, and deny them tax-exempt status. He must have been really worried, if he had to use an arm of the federal govt to bully his opposition.

Obama's 60-state "misspeak" is just one of many go-tos. The guy's an idiot. One of my favorites is when he was stuttering and stammering about the kid with asthma getting a breathalyzer.

Here's Bush laughing about not finding any WMDs. Now, I forget. Remind us how many US Soldiers died over Obama's "selfie". At least 700,000 troops were killed over Bush's punch line. VOID
