Joe Biden Calls Job Losses from Obamacare’s a Good Thing
Posted by Steve Markowitz on March 2, 2014
The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) released a report last week estimating that Obamacare (Affordable Healthcare Act) will result in approximately 2,000,000 jobs lost in the United States. VP Joe Biden recently on The View was asked about this consequence of the Act and his incredible answer was: “Look, this is a really good report.” Yikes!
In justifying his response, Biden turned the discussion into a gender warfare issue indicating that women, who currently need to work to have healthcare coverage, will no longer need to do so. That will supposedly allow them, to spend more time with their children.
For years those with basic economic understanding and common sense have expressed concern about the slippery slope that entitlements take the country. As more sugar is handed out by the government, motivation to work decreases along with the structural unemployment. Liberals have historically argued against this rationale, ignoring basic factors of human nature and greed. Leave it to Joe Biden to finally speak the truth about these governmental programs and their actual intent; make people dependent on government.
