Unions Said To Get Special Exemptions From Obamacare

It's good to have friends


The Obama administration is being accused of giving labor groups "special treatment under the law" after formally proposing a change that could exempt union health plans from a pesky ObamaCare fee. 

Sen. John Thune, R-S.D., who flagged the obscure rule change after it was filed in the Federal Register (see page 70), blasted the exemption as "crony capitalism at its worst." 

"Unions are now experiencing the ugly reality of this law, and they want out," he said in a statement.
