Nearly 10,000 Las Vegas casino workers are considering going on strike over what the unpopular Obamacare program has done to their health care insurance. If contract negotiations to keep their existing benefits go unsettled by March 20, Nevada’s biggest union, the Culinary Union Local 226, says it will vote to grant the union the right to strike.
This current threat of an almost 10,000-person union strike is the latest instance of unions’ rebuke of Obamacare. Last September, Laborers’ International Union of North America (LIUNA) President Terry O’Sullivan told AFL-CIO convention attendees, “We’ll be damned if we’re going to lose our health insurance because of unintended consequences in the law!”
I’m happy to report that Obamacare clashes between unions and Obama could further threaten the odds of Democrats already facing daunting midterm elections come November. According to the RealClearPolitics average of polls, just 38% of Americans now support Obamacare and less people are supporting Dems!
