SEIU To Drop Coverage; Thanks Obamacare

New York members of 1199SEIU, the union for health care workers, can thank Obamacare and their union for the bombshell that was dropped on them. 1199 will no longer cover children as part of its health care coverage. The move comes as the cost of insuring children increases and is exacerbated by the requirements of Obamacare.

“In addition, new federal health-care reform legislation requires plans with dependent coverage to expand that coverage up to age 26,” Behroozi wrote in a letter to members Oct. 22. “Our limited resources are already stretched as far as possible, and meeting this new requirement would be financially impossible.” WSJ

The union fought hard FOR Obamacare and now is ensnared in the ugly realization that it will cost more money, money that the union cannot afford and a condition contrary to the claims that Obamacare would be less expensive.

While the union refuses to do the right thing by its members it is expecting the state to “do the right thing.”

“We hope the state of New York will do the right thing and provide the funding necessary for this most vulnerable population of direct caregivers,” the union said in a statement.

Of course, expect taxpayers to pick up the tab for the bill which is what the unions do all the time.

How about SEIU do the right thing and pay for the increases. After all, it was the actions of SEIU (and other unions) that helped usher in Obamacare.

You made your bed, now lie in it.

    No- you don’t understand- this is what they wanted all along- drive everyone up on the rocks of a single- payer (gubbmint) system, and you will overwhelm the system.
    Obamacare is more fragile than Hiz ego- it won’t take much of a nudge.
