Union leaders blast ObamaCare in letter to Reid, Pelosi

Hot Air reports:
Barack Obama tried using his State of the Union speech in part as a defense of ObamaCare, showing that he was not prepared to retreat from his signature legislative achievement even after the disastrous rollout. The intent was clearly to reset the debate on both metrics and anecdotes, with presidential guests including a woman who finally could buy insurance through the new system, as a way to help Democrats fight the issue in the midterms. Republicans countered by inviting a number of guests whose lives, coverage, and medical care have been disrupted by ObamaCare in many different ways.

Not everyone was thrilled with the defense of ObamaCare, including a couple of surprising critics. Jon Ralston reports that two national union leaders have sent a letter blasting ObamaCare to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi
