    from;
    1199SEIU to Drop Health Coverage for Workers' Children - Metropolis - WSJ


    "One of the largest union-administered health-insurance funds in New York is dropping coverage for the children of more than 30,000 low-wage home attendants, union officials said. The union blamed financial problems it said were caused by the state’s health department and new national health-insurance requirements."


    Now this is a little weird. Just why would they do this?

    Maybe the plan all along?

    What formula for success would prescribe selling services at a loss? Bullshit walks.

    That formula is the lynch pin of Obamacare.

    There is the union...looking out for the little guy...hahaha..Of course it was planned. Why would SEIU, UAW, and AFL-CIO spend 10's of millions to get this thing passsed if it was going to force people out of coverage. Barry's plan was to prop up the unions by shifting health care and pension costs to the taxpayers. Like he said...Their fight has been his fight all along. On that note...DaGoose should be here shortly :)

    Read the article:

    As premiums went up and employer contributions remained constant, the benefit fund started cutting the rolls of eligible members. In the past three years the 1199 fund reduced its total enrollment in half, to less than 40,000 currently.

    Before the current health care plan. And how much does adding those from 18 to 26 who are in college? If I had to guess, I would say it brings in more money than they cost. Students at that age in college are one of the most healthy groups in the country.

    Imagine if we had a "public option"? Too bad Republicans destroyed that plan. If only two or three of them had decided to vote for the American people instead of "We want to destroy this president", things would have been so much better. At least we know their priorities.

    That's what I was getting at. If they can't pass this law in the light of day, they will do it in the middle of the night, and all the rest of what that twat pelosi said.

    If legislation can't be achieved, we will just create an "emergency" to force this on the people whether they agree or not.

    Doing the will of the American people. Partisan lunacy. Umm, that doesn't really make sense.

    If healthcare was the will of the people, then how do you explain that MASSIVE beat down a few weeks back? Keep telling yourself that had nothing to do with healthcare...hahaha...Perhaps Barry will get cap and trade "deemed" passed and then you can tell yourself the next election beat down had nothing to do with that too. See you in 2012 when the next wave of dems get their walking papers :)
