ObamaCare and 'Income Inequality'

Union says it's not helping.

Mar. 10, 2014

Not every Democrat constituency is happy about ObamaCare. Unite Here, a 300,000 member union of low-wage hospitality workers, says, “Without smart fixes, the ACA threatens the middle class with higher premiums, loss of hours, and a shift to part-time work and less comprehensive coverage.” In fact, one of Barack Obama’s central talking points – “income inequality” – will continue to increase due to his health care law. Union head Donald “D.” Taylor didn’t pull any punches, saying, “Unite Here was the first union to endorse then-Senator Obama. We support the addition of health care to millions of Americans. Yet facts are facts, and Obamacare will cost our members the equivalent of a significant pay cut to keep their hard-won benefits.” Not to worry though; as Obama says, “It is working the way it should.”
