Report: Administration denies unions’ request for Obamacare waiver
As Twitchy reported, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka was all smiles on his way out of the White House today. While Sens. Ted Cruz and Mike Lee have been lobbying to have Obamacare defunded, big labor has instead hoped to be exempted from the Affordable Care Act until it can be taken back into the shop and “fixed” to their specifications. No sooner had the union leaders pulled away in their limos than the Washington Post’s Ezra Klein was reporting that no, there would be no waiver.
