Vanessa Renderman's Aug. 23 article, "Union members, legislators discuss ways to support Obamacare," described a meeting between some of our elected Democrats, U.S. Rep. Pete Visclosky's chief of staff and union members from SEIU complaining Gov. Mike Pence was not willing to expand the new Obamacare tax to Hoosiers. I would laugh if this law wasn't so sad.
Visclosky voted for this law, later determined to be a tax, in the middle of the night with all the other members of the Democratic Party. The majority of the public are against this bill.
How can the SEIU or any member of the U.S. Senate or House of Representatives expect Hoosiers to be in favor of Obamacare? The union and Congress received waivers from President Barack Obama enabling them to avoid the cost we will have to pay when this law fully goes into effect. If Obamacare is such a great program, why are they exempted?
This is a bad law and will put even more people out of work.
