Today's Obamacare--More On Unions

Yesterday (Labor Day), I asked why unions would support Obamacare?  It places high taxes on good health plans and will almost surely limit benefits going forward.  If you have a really good union health plan, it seems foolish to give it up.

Apparently, some union members are asking the exact same question.  40,000 longshoremen of the ILWU are leaving the AFL-CIO, citing Obamacare as the reason.  They don't like AFL-CIO's stand on immigration as well.

I have several links regarding this story below and I won't dwell on it.  But it does seem that waiting until the law was about to become effective to protest was not a good strategy.  Perhaps they should have done something sooner.
