Exclusive: Study shows ObamaCare will destroy as many as 700,000 jobs by 2019
hot air ^ | 3/17/10 | Ed Morrissey

Posted on 03/17/2010 6:55:33 AM PDT by blueyon

During the ObamaCare summit three weeks ago, Nancy Pelosi declared that the bill would create four million jobs over the next ten years, with 400,000 new jobs created almost immediately. Pelosi relied on a study written by the left-wing advocacy group Center for American Progress for those figures, although the Bureau of Labor Statistics already predicts growth in the health-care industry of 3.2 million jobs without ObamaCare. Now, Americans for Tax Reform and the Beacon Hill Institute have conducted their own study using CAP’s methodology and determined that ObamaCare will destroy jobs, not create them. Hot Air has an exclusive first look at the BHI executive summary:

I’m starting to think that financial and economic predictions are as useless as global warming predictions. Who can really know what something as complicated as the economy will do?

700,000 jobs lost by 2019? When you compare that number to how many have been destroyed just in 2009 to now alone...that really doesn’t seem like much. I think this is the low ball number. I bet the real number is in the millions.

He'll only destroy 700,000 jobs?

I would have thought the number would be 10-100x larger.

Create jobs? Perhaps, but who would pay for those jobs? Oh, wait, the taxpayer. We are in a huge fiscal pit and the only solution these people offer is a new entitlement which will ensure that it only gets deeper (and fills with water).

I said this from the get go. Obama will appoint someone to regulate the insurance companies therefore shutting down all but the insurance company (ies) that are in bed with Obama.Then MANY will lose jobs.

They don’t think they have to vote for this because it is pure communism anyway so why bother...

Geeze. I thought we are shedding 400K jobs a month at present. So only 700K lost by 2019 would actually represent a big decrease in job losses.

"...ObamaCare will destroy as many as 700,000 jobs by 2019..."

Boy! That coupled with the 500,000,000 jobs that Pelosi says we're currently losing every month is going to put the U.S. in a hole here one of these months.

Lucky for us that 0's HCR is going to lower everybody's premium by 3000%. s/

What a pack of dipchits we have running the show.

I have never despised anyone as much as I depise Pelosi. She is perhaps the most corrupt, immoral, bigoted, radical person to ever serve in congress.

Gosh! I hate San Francisco.

Along with this first round of massive job loss will come loss of AAA credit rating and hyperinflation. Hussein will use the chaos to suspend the Constitution for the “duration”.

700,000 jobs? Probably 10x that number - cap and trade will be much worse.

700,000? When Obama’s Cloward Piven strategy crashes the economy, 700,000 will only be a down payment on what will happen then.

Remember, you must break the will of the American people by bringing them to their knees financially, then they will be ALL TOO WILLING to embrace Government assistance of any kind and will be most compliant.

I be that many of us are in total agreement with you re this being a Low Ball estimate.

“700,000 jobs lost by 2019? When you compare that number to how many have been destroyed just in 2009 to now alone...that really doesn’t seem like much. I think this is the low ball number. I bet the real number is in the millions.”

Beside probably 5-10,000,000 jobs lost in the first year or so post passage, the loss of future jobs will be incredible.

No one will hire anyone.

Everyone will become and will hire consultants or people by the hour to do a job for each day they work.

Millions of Boomers failed to save or lost money during the meltdown. They will never be able to fully retire. So they will be glad to work for 2-3 days a week with no benefits at an hourly rate with no guarantees.

“I see a business opportunity for The Popiel Pocket Surgeon.”

If this bill passes, it will become the golden age for seniors and a terrible age for parents with families at home or in college, and for new people in the job market.

My wife will be 70, and she works as an RN for a busy FP. She plans to work 3 days a week for him until one or both leave this orb. She averages 5-10 requests per week from people in health care wanting someone like her.

I’m 71 and since this health care possibility has heated up, I’m averaging about one unsolicited offer a week.

We went to a dinner party this past weekend and 60 year olds were on the young side. Basically every retired person at that party has or is receiving job offers on a regular basis. A retired carpenter was hired back 2-3 days a week by the same company he worked 35 years for. An asst. grocery store manager is now merchandising products in grocery stores in this area working for a friend. A retired principal/teacher could probably work everyday as a substitute principal in the district he retired from.

No body wants to hire a full time person and have to pay current benefits and the potentially crushing costs of 0b0z0 care.

Even one job lost is too much. Just got the unemployment figures for our county and surrounding counties. Stephens Co., 15.6%, Ferry Co.,17.5%, Pend Oreille Co., 16.2%. If this is allowed to pass, it would be madness. Plus, our idiots over in Olimpia want to raise taxes also. When do we have enough?

Great site to let your voice be heard. Easy to access and only takes a minute to email your reps. Kill the bill!!!
Click on the button at the top, fill in your address & click the button, then scroll to the bottom of the letter(s) and click submit.

That is, if you also oppose the government healthcare plan.

A simple way to look at it, the more you burden it the more it suffers. The more burden removed, the more it thrives.
