    Union pulls back on supporting bill

    The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) backed out of an event with other organizations promoting the Senate healthcare reform bill Wednesday over concerns about changes made to the legislation to accommodate centrist Democrats.

    But the move by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) to excise provisions of the healthcare reform bill to create a government-run public option health insurance program and to allow people between 55 and 64 years old to buy into Medicare gave the labor union pause, spokeswoman Lori Lodes said.

    "That decision has to be made by our leaders and our members," Lodes said. The event with the AARP and the other groups was scheduled before Reid made changes to the bill.

    The SEIU executive board will hold what Lodes described as an "emergency" meeting Wednesday night to decide how to move forward. "Right now, they don't have the information they need to make this decision," said Lodes, who added that the SEIU informed the other organizations on Tuesday they would not be joining the press conference.

    No way that taxation of the Union's generous health care benefits will stay in the bill or that their members will be subjected to this monstrosity. Reid is dead meat. I hope this POS gets slaughtered in the election in next year. Plus, any senior that stays in the rotten AARP organization is a fool. On second thought, they will be one of the few selling Medicare supplemental plans if it passes.
