Chickens. Home. Roost.

From the "I told you so" files:

Back in January, we observed that, even though the ObamaTax had heavy union backing, there was some concern that these efforts might backfire:

"Union leaders say many of the law's requirements will drive up the costs for their health-care plans and make unionized workers less competitive"

Fast forward to April, and we see the wall start to crumble:

"A labor union representing roofers is reversing course and calling for repeal of the [ObamaTax], citing concerns the law will raise its cost for insuring members."

And now to complete the trifecta:

"Deep in the list of taxes that the [ObamaTax] will hit Americans with is a 40 percent excise tax on health plans typical union members have ... This tax will most directly affect union families and early retirees"

Schadenfreude - it's what's for dinner.
