Last week the Lonely conservative reported on the SEIU dropping dependent health care:
The fund informed its members late last month that their dependents will no longer be covered as of Jan. 1, 2011. Currently about 6,000 children are covered by the benefit fund, some until age 23.
We touched on it briefly on Saturday’s show, Michelle Malkin now reports that the SEIU is in full spin control mode today:
So if the new spin is now Gospel Truth, shouldn’t SEIU 1199 apologize to the 30,000 families that received the letter blaming Obamacare for making children’s coverage “financially impossible?”
What new spin? Apparently when dropping coverage the union said this:
“…(N)ew federal health-care reform legislation requires plans with dependent coverage to expand that coverage up to age 26,” Behroozi explained in an Oct. 22 letter to members. “Our limited resources are already stretched as far as possible, and meeting this new requirement would be financially impossible.”
Whoa Whoa Whoa we can’t be blaming Obamacare when our union worked so hard for it, so the message is changed anew to cover themselves.
To the union members who supported democrats and worked for democrats and watched your dues go to democratic coffers instead of your own pension funds I say this: You did this to yourselves!
