Other Than That ...

James Hoffa, president of the Teamsters Union has some ... ah, reservations about Obamacare and expresses them bluntly in a letter to Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid:

When you and the President sought our support for the Affordable Care Act (ACA), you pledged that if we liked the health plans we have now, we could keep them. Sadly, that promise is under threat. Right now, unless you and the Obama Administration enact an equitable fix, the ACA will shatter not only our hard-earned health benefits, but destroy the foundation of the 40 hour work week that is the backbone of the American middle class.

Later, Mr. Hoffa makes his point in the unequivocal Teamster style:

We have a problem; you need to fix it. 

Or what?
