I thought about updating my earlier post but this really deserves a story all of its own.

Poetic Justice: DemCare Starts Destroying Health Care Benefits for Two Million Union Members Starting in Just Nine Months

Remember how the President endlessly bragged that health care reform would never -- never! -- impact your existing health plans? You know, the "if you like your plan, you can keep it" shtick? Well, I know this comes as a shock, but he lied.

What no one appears to be pointing out is that DemCare specifically targets private sector union members first. Because of the dizzying new regulations imposed by the new law, "industrial concerns [and/or] those with unionized employees, say the end of the deduction could force them to ... curtail or even cancel them [health benefits]," according to The Los Angeles Times. That's right: most union retirees will have their cushy plans slammed by DemCare through changes in the tax code.
 Wow, that sucks.  Those darned unintended consequences appear when you least expect them, don't they?  Well, I'm sure the union members won't mind taking it in the backside.  After all, we're all in this together.
Favorite quote from the post:

Union members, it's time you started kicking the crap out of your union bigwigs -- politically speaking -- because:
They. Sold. You. Out.
