Obamacare Law Will Force 21 Million Healthcare Workers To Unionize - Healthcare Cost Will Skyrocket

Labor unions continued to receive the overwhelming majority of waivers from the president’s health care reform law since the Obama administration tightened application rules last summer.
Documents released in a classic Friday afternoon news dump show that labor unions representing a little over 600,000 workers received waivers from President Barack Obama‘s signature legislation since June 17, 2011.
By contrast, private employers with a total of 69,813 employees, many of whom work for small businesses, were granted waivers. 
But now we see the real Union payoff that Obama had in mind for his Union Boss buddies. With Obamacare now in place, healthcare workers all across the nation will be forced to join Unions or lose their jobs. SEIU will see a rapid forced growth as will many other of Obama's Union hack friends.

The principal reason unions are more successful among government workers than private-sector workers is that government-sector employers have no reason to resist unionization. They and the unions with which they “bargain” sit on the same side of the bargaining table. They each seek more and more money from taxpayers. Bureaucrats seek larger budgets for their agencies, and the unions are helpful in organizing support for those larger budgets. Government employees know their paychecks are determined by political clout, and they recognize the value of unions as effective lobbyists against the interests of taxpayers. For example, in Canada, which has a single-payer medical system, almost all registered nurses are government employees. Sixty-two percent of Canadian registered nurses are unionized. The corresponding figure in America in 2008 was 19.8 percent. In brief, ObamaCare would create more government employees; and since government employees are receptive to the blandishments of unions, unions support ObamaCare.

Book: Obamacare law designed to unionize 21 million health care workers | The Daily Caller:

In a book set for publication Tuesday, a politics and government professor at The Citadel claims President Obama’s 2009 health care reform law was, in part, a union-driven effort to organize 21 million health care workers.

In ”Shadowbosses: Government Unions Control America and Rob Taxpayers Blind,” Mallory Factor describes a December 9, 2008 memo from Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Healthcare president Dennis Rivera to the Obama-Biden transition team.

That memo outlined a legislative proposal calling for “increasing the capacity of the health care workforce” as part of a larger health care reform initiative.

The SEIU and the Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), Factor writes, later coordinated with other public-sector unions to spend “literally hundreds of millions of dollars promoting Obamacare.”
The Daily Caller requested comments for this article from the SEIU, AFSCME and a White House spokesman. None of them responded.
A booklet published by SEIU during the 2008 election season called for “building a new American health care system,” in part by “organizing workers.” The publication argued for outcomes nearly identical to those later adopted in the Obamacare legislation.
