Here’s the opening of a letter sent to Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid:

When you and the President sought our support for the Affordable Care Act (ACA), you pledged that if we liked the health plans we have now, we could keep them. Sadly, that promise is under threat. Right now, unless you and the Obama Administration enact an equitable fix, the ACA will shatter not only our hard-earned health benefits, but destroy the foundation of the 40 hour work week that is the backbone of the American middle class.

Like millions of other Americans, our members are front-line workers in the American economy. We have been strong supporters of the notion that all Americans should have access to quality, affordable health care. We have also been strong supporters of you. In campaign after campaign we have put boots on the ground, gone door-to-door to get out the vote, run phone banks and raised money to secure this vision.

Now this vision has come back to haunt us.

The letter is from the head of the Teamsters and two other unions. Read the whole thing.

Oh man. I love irony, and I feel like Al Pacino in that scene in Scarface where he's sniffing a mound of cocaine off his desk and his head just topples into it.

No mention of this letter in the MSM.

Dear Teamsters Union:

Thanks for the help. However, you just don't have the numbers we need anymore--you're nothing compared to the wholesale unionization of healthcare workers that we envision as a result of the ACA.

Not that this has anything to do with anything, but didn't you always wonder what those true-believers were thinking when they inevitably went up against the wall during the purges?

Yours truly,
Nancy & Harry

P.S. Don't cry your crocodile tears, dear Teamsters bosses. You will collect your union dues from the new workers. Make sure you remit them to us. Your old members are getting cynical about your and our promises anyway. May as well put them out to pasture. They can claim welfare and Medicaid, courtesy of all taxpayers. Ain't we brilliant? We have their mindless support and other taxpayers to support them. Your union dues are safe.
