    Union head Trumka admits "we made some mistakes" in drafting Obamacare

    At least we finally know now who's in charge.....Pelosi couldnt read the ObamaCare bill until it was passed, because the bill was at AFL CIO headquarters, being put together by the Democrats paymasters, for their own benefit. Except they messed up.

    Kinda like the 'auto bailout'  bill, which bailed out the unions and no one else.

    "The head of the nation’s largest federation of unions admitted “we made some mistakes” in writing ObamaCare Thursday at a Christian Science Monitor breakfast in downtown DC.

    The head of the AFL-CIO, Richard Trumka, said he was surprised that employers have reduced workers’ hours below 30-a-week to avoid an employer penalty scheduled to go into effect in 2015.

    “That is obviously something that no one intended. No one intended the act to result in people working fewer hours just so they [employers] don’t have to pay for healthcare,” said Trumka. “So that’s something that needs to be addressed. Is that an issue? Yeah that’s an issue.”

    Local governments, movie theater chains, and fast-food restaurants have announced cut backs in hours due to ObamaCare. Last week, Reuters reported that an effort to reduce hours “might have helped push the average work week down to a six-month low in July.”

    Yet some, like the Washington Post‘s Sarah Kliff, have noted that the vast majority of large employers haven’t dodged the requirement.

    When asked if he would accept a change in ObamaCare’s definition of full-time work, as some legislators have suggested, Trumka responded, “Of course we would,” but didn’t elaborate on what the change would be.

    Nobody's perfect.  Not even teh unions.

     

    Nice to see the OP hinging his point on a union boss' opinion, though.  Almost like the elitist CLC cares what union members think.  Almost.

    "Nobody's perfect".

    You are quite forgiving of your beloved public sector .

    Government bureaucratic takeovers have a combined record of 0-346....time to put in a new team.

    Mistakes?

    how is pushing something on the rest of us, then excluding union, congress, congressional workers, obama, a mistake? It seems like typical progressive thought process.

    maybe the mistake is funding this on the backs of the middle class.
