Obamacare: Cracks in the Foundation

Support for Obamacare has always been less than overwhelming. But there were constituencies that were thought to be reliable. Now, that seems to be changing, as the Wall Street Journal reports:

[The United Union of Roofers, Waterproofers and Allied Workers] is reversing course and calling for repeal of the federal health law, citing concerns the law will raise its cost for insuring members.

And, then, there is the fear that some members would lose their existing health care coverage which, of course, violates the promise that, if you like your current plan, you will be able to keep it.

Obamacare, it seems, is not only too complex in the opinion of some who designed it, too unwieldy to manage in the minds of those who are charged with administering it, and too expense and risky for some of those who originally supported it.

Other than that ... it is an undeniable winner.
