Citing ObamaCare and immigration reform, the 40,000-strong Longshore and Warehouse Union has ended its affiliation with the AFL-CIO.
According to a study by National Journal, ObamaCare will make individual insurance cost far more than employer-sponsored insurance and encourage employers to drop coverage.
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is urging Congress to pass immigration reform so that it may help undocumented individuals gain greater access to healthcare services. As observed by the Daily Caller in February, however, a pathway to citizenship may increase the cost of Obamacare up to $300 billion over a decade.
A recent study finds that ObamaCare is unlikely to induce many young, healthy people to buy insurance, sending the insurance industry into a "death spiral" of rising premiums and fewer, sicker beneficiaries.
