This is a Reblogged from 

obama face

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare, has faced criticism since its inception. At first, critics were mainly found in conservative and libertarian circles, with those on the left gushing about how much it would “change” things and give us “hope”. But now, even the left is waking up from the delusion and are admitting that Obamacare is an epic failure.

The United Union of Roofers, Waterproofers and Allied Workers released a statement to the press calling for the repeal or reform of the health care law.

This, in conjunction with Senator Max Baucus (D-MT) saying that Obamacare will be a ‘train wreck’, shows that support for the President’s law is diminishing. Remember, this is the same union that was for it before it was passed — this means they’re admitting they were wrong to some extent, which is huge news for a labor union.

Many of the complaints in the statement released by International President Kinsey M. Robinson are things that critics of Obamacare have pointed out all along. Robinson begins by saying that the Union has supported the President, yet feels as if their concerns over certain provisions in the law were overlooked or ignored.

He makes note of the rushed manner in which the law was passed and wonders about the unintended consequences, which jeopardize member’s health plans. He laments the potential of some members losing their jobs and of others losing some of their benefits. He concludes of the unfair advantage gained by contractors who do not offer health insurance to their workers.

Numerous employers have cut employee hours and even some jobs to avoid certain provisions of the law. While the Roofers Union may have been the first union to call for repeal of Obamacare, they probably won’t be the last.

Robinson ends the statement by saying there needs to be repeal or the complete reform of the health care law. Remember, this from a union — not just another think tank or economics research group. This is big news.

The Affordable Care Act has already proven to be unaffordable. The cost of implementing the law becomes higher every time a government agency estimates it. It has already added at least a trillion dollars to the debt. Many Americans have found that their own health plan costs have increased or been dropped, despite the President’s promise that costs would be lowered and ‘if you like your plan, you can keep it’.

Still, unions in general are suffering, as membership in unions is collapsing right now. We live in interesting times.

The ‘red pill’ and its opposite, ‘blue pill,‘ are pop culture terms that have become symbolic of the choice between blissful ignorance (blue) and embracing the sometimes-painful truth of reality (red). It’s time for America to take the red pill and wake up from the fog of apathy.
