Not Even the Left is Happy With Obamacare

Unions Oppose Possible Health Insurance Tax -
When millions of blue-collar workers were leaning toward John McCain during the 2008 campaign, labor unions moved many of them into Barack Obama’s column by repeatedly hammering one theme: Mr. McCain wanted to tax their health benefits.

But now labor leaders are fuming that President Obama has endorsed a tax on high-priced, employer-sponsored health insurance policies as a way to help cover the cost of health care reform.
So who exactly was lying? The Obama Campaign, or the Union Leaders?

I just find the schadenfreude to be delicious.
