White House health care adviser Phil Schiliro maintains that Obamacare cant be bad for jobs because some jobs have been created since it passed.
You cant say the Affordable Care Act has killed job growth, Schiliro told an audience at a Kaiser Family Foundation presentation Wednesday. In the 46 months since it passed, over 8 million jobs have been created No one would say the Affordable Care Act created those jobs, but you cant say the ACA has killed job growth.
Schiliros comparison presumes that were Obamacare damaging at all, it would have stopped job growth entirely including any recovery from the financial crisis in late 2008.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that the financial crash and resulting recession lost the U.S. economy 8.8 million jobs.
The Congressional Budget Office issued a report concluding that the equivalent of 2.3 million jobs would be lost because Obamacares structure incentivizes less work with more taxpayer subsidies.
Business leaders such as the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) estimate that the Health Insurance Tax will reduce employment by up to 262,000 jobs by 2022.

Wow this guy’s brilliant. He makes a night-light look like a supernova.

Where did this clown grab 8 million jobs created? From his ass?

This irrational idiocy would be entertaining if the millions of idled Americans from the Great Obama Depression weren’t so tragic.
This white house is really good at making up their own set of ‘facts’. Then they bold-faced lie about those ‘facts’ to everyone, every chance they get. They are really beyond pitiful.
But don’t worry, Bill O’Reilly said tonight on his show that he believes Obama is a patriot and that he has the peoples best interest at heart.
BOR and Obama make me sick.
Smoke and mirrors.
I think the correct spelling of his name is “SHILL”, or is it “SHIT”? Same thing where I come from.
The lies are getting lamer.
What did honorable, honest smoke and mirrors ever do to deserve the comparison?
But obamacare DID stop global warming since we had a really cold winter this year.
“That logic makes no sense”
I agree. It’s like saying cancer isn’t a killer disease because some people survive it.
When the nation is led by liars, all but the willingly blind know the truth.
