Now, the CBO has released an updated estimate, nearly the triple the size of the earlier one: 2.3 million in 2021.

Gosh when is the boy going to pivot.

Read the report itself - a long read, but worth it;

Nowhere in this report does it implicitly state Obamacare will kill jobs, but I'm always open to you interpretation.

As usual, the right-wing runs with a headline without reading the whole article... but what's new about this; before the 2012 Election they ran wild with phony stories about Mitt Romney leading in all the polls until theyes ran into that blunt object on Election Night call reality.

The ACA did not kill 800,000 jobs, but Bush killed about 8,000,000
of them.

Is that a record?

Most Americans have never been exposed to schemes such as this, nor do they have any idea of how gubment run health care really functions in the real world. Simple fact of the matter is, efficiency, quality and cost containment never comes from government running anything!

The following is a precursor of what will happen when this scam of controlling our lives and one sixth of our economy is allowed to continue in completing the destruction of America as we know it.

Note: The following examples are countries that have embraced a "single payer" system that this president and his surrogates are directing their efforts towards:

In Sweden their dumping Nanny State run health care for the private Insurance market. And for good reasons--"Sweden is often looked upon by liberals and statists as a shining beacon of what all countries should aspire towards"..
