NEW YORK, N.Y. ( & KRNV) -- One giant union has released a statement, asking politicians to create a more level playing field with Obamacare.

UNITE HERE has released a document titled "The Irony of ObamaCare: Making Inequality Worse". The document claims that the Affordable Care Act threatens the middle class with a loss of hours, higher premiums, and less comprehensive coverage. 

The document also argues that the Affordable Care Act will transfer a billion dollars in wealth to insurance companies, creating an unlevel playing field in the market. It will result in pay decreases and force employers to cut back hours and result in pay decreases.

The document is being sent to lawmakers in Washington, as well as other unions, asking them to join the fight on the side of UNITE HERE.

According to the UNITE HERE website, the union represents workers throughout the U.S. and Canada who work in the hotel, gaming, food service, manufacturing, textile, distribution, laundry, and airport industries.

Plenty of "fixes" (oops, drug-slang) are needed, but this 'document' lists how many? Quick, name a non-profit health-care company. Now, how about an insurance co that plays fair?

One "giant" item is missing: the name of the union. Maybe this is a front for some PAC? While the "transfer of wealth" to insurance companies sounds union, they don't often use "middle class", instead, it's 'working people'. Hmm, I wonder what VW does for it's workers' health care?
