    Teamsters: AHCA Will Hurt Working Families

    (WASHINGTON) –The Teamsters Union opposes the American Health Care Act (AHCA) which was passed by the House of Representatives today. The legislation’s wholesale changes to the current system leaves working families footing the bill for corporate tax breaks while paving a path to the elimination of even basic health care for the millions of American families that need it the most.

    The AHCA attacks working families who receive high-quality health care plans from their employers through a 40 percent excise tax. This “Cadillac Tax” penalizes middle class workers who have fought long and hard for the strong health care plans they receive.

    “The American Health Care Act is a flawed piece of legislation that should never be made into law,” said Teamsters General President Jim Hoffa. “It not only includes this destructive Cadillac Tax that targets working families, but it also allows insurance companies to discriminate against people with pre-existing conditions and charge older Americans up to five times higher premiums than younger plan holders.

    Oh, the scumbag GOP had to put that tax on us didn't they. They should consider themselves lucky that the working class and poor have not ripped this country apart brick by brick with all the BS dished out to us.

    GOP must stand for "Get Our Payback" on the Unions. I remember Fred Smith making a political statement damning the democrats at the shareholders meeting when brother "The Owl" questioned the piss poor insurance FedEx offered their employees. I wonder if his pathetic response will be used again now that the republicans shafted us? Freddy claimed his company was going to take a hit and now? It's all good with the party of "NO" holding the reins? If President Trump puts a pen to this POS offering, that should pull a few heads out of the sand that voted for him.

    So are the working people the ones opting out of Obama care to pay the penalty because they can't afford the premiums...not alone the co pays....

    You must be referring to the AHCA and the mind numbing length of it. Many didn't read it or even know what was contained. A huge mistake. Seems many of the republicant's found they didn't have an answer for what they cursed for years. Better yet, were the excuses for passing along their version of it. If Trump puts a pen to the republican version, it will be his baby, and we can thank him for it. "There is going to be so much winning!"
