Labor unions have been among President Obama’s most reliable supporters. Unions’ support was critical to the passage of Obamacare in 2010. But unions are continuing to learn, to their apparent surprise, that their members will bear many of the costs of the new health law. Now we learn that some laborers are preparing to strike, if they are forced to absorb the higher health-insurance costs that the Affordable Care Act requires. A lawyer for the Laborers International Union of North America told the Wall Street Journal, “When we first supported the calls for health-care reform, we thought it was going to bring costs down.” But that’s not what’s happening, as there are several cases where unionized workers and their employers are being forced to absorb higher costs as a result of the law.
