WHAT! How did the evil republicans pull this off? Despite the best efforts of Obama, the unions and all their allies to get there idea of cost cutting hard ideas in place... SOMEHOW, these sneaky republicans have made the cost of healthcare, and thus the cost of insurance, to go up. They are really diabolical!!! I guess this is another issue that union dues paying people need to take up with their leadership... if those leaders are available to be consulted with... they are pretty busy visting the White House and going to fund raiser you know.

Now that ObamaCare is actually happening, labor unions who made a big push for the legislation three years ago are no longer rallying behind it. Unions are seeing healthcare promises made by President Obama broken left and right in the form of higher costs, more bureaucracy, loss of doctors Obama promised they could keep, slashing of healthcare benefits and more.

Union leaders say many of the law's requirements will drive up the costs for their health-care plans and make unionized workers less competitive. Among other things, the law eliminates the caps on medical benefits and prescription...
