AFSCME mocks ‘The Boehner Bunch’ in new video


By Eric W. Dolan/Raw Story
The AFSCME, a union representing 1.6 million public service workers, on Tuesday uploaded a video to YouTube that humorously criticizes Republicans for their opposition to the Affordable Care Act.
The video, based on the intro to the 1970′s sitcom The Brady Bunch, claims that “working people don’t matter” to prominent Republicans like House Speaker John Boehner (OH), Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (KY) and Florida Gov. Rick Scott.
All the Republicans in the video have vowed to do whatever they can to repeal President Barack Obama’s health care reform law.
Though the union insists it is non-partisan, the AFSCME has made it clear they will support President Barack Obama in the 2012 elections. They also support the Affordable Care Act.
“Even though the Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act (‘Obamacare’), Speaker John Boehner and Republican leaders refuse to let go,” the union wrote on their website. “This week the U.S. House is set to vote — for the 31st time — on a bill to repeal the law. Enough is enough. It’s time to stop re-fighting political battles of the past and get to work on the economy.”
