In an August 29 letter to AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, ILWU President Robert McEllrath cited quite a list of grievances as reasons for the disillusion of their affiliation, but prominent among them was the AFL-CIO's support of Obamare.

"We feel the Federation has done a great disservice to the labor movement and all working people by going along to get along," McEllrath wrote in the letter to Trumka.

The ILWU President made it clear they are for a single-payer, nationalized healthcare policy and are upset with the AFL-CIO for going along with Obama on the confiscatory tax on their "Cadillac" healthcare plan.

The Longshoreman leader said, "President Obama ran on a platform that he would not tax medical plans and at the 2009 AFL-CIO Convention, you stated that labor would not stand for a tax on our benefits." But, regardless of that promise, the President has pushed for just such a tax and Trumka and the AFL-CIO bowed to political pressure lining up behind Obama's tax on those plans.

Bottom line...40,000 Longshoremen quit the AFL-CIO...voters' remorse.

You do understand (clearly not) that the reason they left was because they want a SINGLE PAYER system, you know, SOCIALISM instead of the ACA. That doesn't matter. What is important is that Breitbart (and his hordes of loyal mindless forwarders) have found yet another thing they can try to smear Obama with.

Does Breitbart belong to the Teamsters?

I don't think so.

Obama and Smear (as in slime) ............two words that go so well together.

I'll admit I'm not a great pilot, but I can hover with the best of them.

fwiw..

There's 40k guys that need to think about the end game......The idea is to make doing private business in the healthcare field become so byzantine and expensive that private healthcare will disappear...Last man standing, so to speak...

As long as Barry and Gentle Ben keep the presses running, and we all look the other way on out fiat currency...Peachy.

When the rest of the world gets tired of it....OOOOH MY!

Hey Phaedrus, trying reading when you're awake...the 40,000 Longshoremen were lied to plain and simple:
"President Obama ran on a platform that he would not tax medical plans and at the 2009 AFL-CIO Convention, you stated that labor would not stand for a tax on our benefits." But, regardless of that promise, the President has pushed for just such a tax and Trumka and the AFL-CIO bowed to political pressure lining up behind Obama's tax on those plans.
But your only concern is Obama's being smeared...but who is smearing Obama?...the answer: Obama's actions... not Breitbart, not the Longshoremen, and not even me.

I'm not smearing Obama even though I would like to. All the pathetic, underhanded, lousy things I would like to write about Obama has already been done by him. He stole my thunder.

When ever I get excited to think there is mutiny in the Democrat party, I am never surprised that they are just unhappy because he didn't go Commie enough in instituting a single payer system.

Meanwhile his subliminal response is "Shut up guys, that's phase two..."

You know how to boil a frog right?
