    It's started already... the myrmidons are starting to complain about the law they supported. Their cries are like a warm blanket to me... Sweet music...

    The laborers union has added to organized labor’s drumbeat of dissatisfaction with the Affordable Care Act.

    In a letter sent to President Barack Obama on Thursday, Laborers International Union of North America President Terry O’Sullivan wrote that the law has “destructive consequences” for the types of health plans that cover millions of unionized construction workers and their family members.

    The letter follows a separate one written last week by the heads of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, the United Food and Commercial Workers and Unite Here, expressing similar concerns to Congress’s top Democrats, Sen. Harry Reid and Rep. Nancy Pelosi. The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers took out print ads raising alarms about the law last week as well.

    If O-zero doesn't repeal it his party will lose the 2014 elections because the unions will vote Pub like they did in the Reagan years.

    They are lobbying for their waiver. It will come very soon.

    Do you think O-zero wants to give the Pubs in the House another vote to insure O-zero can't repeal that waiver too?
