CBO Admits Health Care Law Will Kill 800,000 Jobs


If Obamacare is supposed to be good, why are we currently sitting with 733 waivers handed out to companies that demonstrate an inability to afford it? The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office has now announced that with the implementation of Obamacare over the next decade that they expect a loss of .5% of all jobs… Half a percent doesn’t sound big until you follow the math which amounts to a total of 800,000 jobs will be lost over a decade. Think about that for a moment… regardless of any other economic factors, regardless of any industrial collapses, we can know for certain that 800,000 more jobs will be either lost or eliminated. Where is the value in Obamacare again?

I’m tired of hearing that this is the only way and that there are no other suggestions. Republicans have offered many ideas of where to regulate or change the existing healthcare system without mandating government intervention. Several times there were fully comprehensive plans brought to the floor in the House that were completely ignored by the Pelosi-led Congress during the lead-up to the Obamacare bill hitting the floor for a vote… no debate, just a vote! Remember the whole “You have to pass the bill to find out what’s in the bill” garbage? This is why we have a process in Congress for proper passage of bills… and this is why a discovery phase and proper debate is so crucial for thoroughly vetted and Constitutional bill.

    You have completely misinterpreted the testimony. According to CBO, because health reform will bring will lover premiums in the individual market, some people who work only in order to get the benefit of an employer-sponsored health plan (single mothers, for example,) will no longer find it necessary to work.
    That is a good thing, not a bad thing.
    You have managed to get Mr. Elmendorf’s testimony 180 degrees wrong.

    • Ummm…. Yeah. I Appreciate your stopping by Questioning With Boldness….

      I fail to understand how My paying for single mothers not needing to work anymore in order for them to get insurance is a good thing. See, we are a nation built on the principles of individual responsibilities. Explain to me how a single mother can provide for herself and her child while not working anymore? She had better find it necessary to work for reasons beyond just healthcare insurance. I’m not going to pay for her healthcare, her children’s healthcare, and the rest of her responsibilities like food and housing! It’s tough growing up and accepting responsibility… but we ALL have to do it.

      I have not misinterpreted anything or gotten anything 180 degrees wrong… but I do suggest you have.
