Labor unions oppose the payment plan in the Senate bill because they say many of their members, who have traded higher wages for more comprehensive benefits packages, would be penalized by it.
Labor leaders at Monday's White House meeting included the AFL-CIO's Trumka; Anna Burger of Change to Win; Dennis Van Roekel of the National Education Association; Leo Gerard of United Steelworkers; Joe Hansen of the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union; Ed Hill of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers; Jim Hoffa of the Teamsters; Randi Weingarten of the American Federation of Teachers; Andy Stern of the Service Employees International Union; Terry O'Sullivan of the Laborers' International Union of North America; Gerry McEntee of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees; and Larry Cohen of the Communications Workers of America.
Do you think the Unions are running the show?

I think all strong lobbies are running the show.
Imagine that, we agree on something. I think it's been that way for some time. This h/c "reform" looks like it was written by lobbyists.
