White House adviser: Obamacare didnít kill jobs because people have been hired since it passed

White House health care adviser Phil Schiliro maintains that Obamacare can’t be bad for jobs because some jobs have been created since it passed.

“You can’t 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 can’t say the ACA has killed job growth.”

Schiliro’s 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 Obamacare’s 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.

The White House’s delays have tacitly admitted that some provisions could hurt businesses....

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.

I think the correct spelling of his name is “SHILL”, or is it “SHIT”? Same thing where I come from.

What did honorable, honest smoke and mirrors ever do to deserve the comparison?

I agree. It’s like saying cancer isn’t a killer disease because some people survive it.

Then Obama isn’t the President because people voted for someone else.

I guess that McDonald’s cashier who got a part-time job 20 hour work week is to be considered ‘job growth’?
