Skip to comments.Health industry group: Yes, we've suffered massive Obamacare job losses
Posted on 02/18/2014 5:00:20 PM PST by Nachum
A new report from a top health care industry trade organization contradicts Kathleen Sebelius recent claim that no job loss will occur under Obamacare.
Obamacares medical device tax has already created a job loss of 33,000 in the medical device industry and 132,0o0 more job losses are expected, according to a new report from the industry trade group the Advanced Medical Technology Association (AdvaMed), obtained by the Daily Caller.
There is absolutely no evidence, and every economist will tell you this, that there is any job loss related to the Affordable Care Act, Sebelius said Monday in Orlando. Part-time physicians are actually down since 2010, not up. The number of full-time workers continues to increase. I know thats a popular myth that continues to be repeated but it just is not accurate.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
There have been no job losses.
But the Free Agent market is experiencing a glut maximus.
“I’ve got an a$$load of clients”
There are so many street mimes now instead of hookers the Vice Squad are referred to as Booking Agents.
She, Sebelius is first, and foremost a Leftist Democrat, therefore she lies. Secondly she’s a Liberal Democrat, therefore she lies. Thirdly she’s a loyal Obama Leftist, Liberal, Democrat so of course she lies.
The Obama administration should be the liars administration simply because that’s the total sum of their *credo.
*”a set of fundamental beliefs or a guiding principle.”
If you like your health care industry you can keep your health care industry.
I wonder how many in the group voted for the Marxist.

True, there is no loss IN THE DAMN FEDERAL GOVERNMENT related to Mandatory Obamacare.
BTW, Gov. Sib chose Orlando to spin her Obamalies in Orlando, the home of Disney Fantasy where Dumbo has big ears just like Gov. Sib’s POS boss.
Da BEAT goes on....
That's a completely useless observation. Past US gov't policies have placed an absolute ceiling on the number of new physicians that can be licensed in the US annually, resulting in a shortage that probably will continue for the rest of my lifetime. The US now has fewer physicians per capita than most of the other large, economically developed countries. There is a shortage of physicians, so pretty much any competent physician can work as much as he or she wants to work. If the number is down, it's because fewer want to work part time, not because there isn't enough work for them.
That's true but the article did not say differently.
The 1%’ers want single payer, and it will be so.
The whining of the peasants doesn’t affect Congress a tenth as much as another billion in bribes. (That’s how much was spent on BOTH parties in 1995-2005—”campaign contributions” to get Oh!Bama!Care passed.)
Check Open Secrets for the details. Don’t remain a low-information type and just blame the Democrats.
Hospitals are cutting back on registered nurses at a time when staff infections (MRSA) and carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE)are killing more patients due to poor hospital hygiene practices.
The democrats’ response to all negative reports are to simply call it a lie and move on. This happens from the top to the TV talking heads and all the way down to the voter.
How many? Damm near all of them because they were pumped up at all the new bidness they thot they were going to get via the 30 mill young ‘uns that supposed to happily sign up. No sympathy here cause they got what they got commin’.
Somehow I suspect that a “part time physician” will be assessed the same huge insurance premium as a full-timer ... therefore his insurance cost per patient is greater, and this would greatly discourage such behavior. I don’t know a single part-time physician, for what it is worth.
