Embattled Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius told reporters on Monday that zero evidence exists to suggest that the unpopular Obamacare program is a jobs killer.
“There is absolutely no evidence, and every economist will tell you this, that there is any job loss related to the Affordable Care Act. I know that’s a popular myth that continues to be repeated but it just is not accurate.”
Sebelius’s denial of Obamacare-related job losses comes just two weeks after the release of a bombshell Congressional Budget Office (CBO) report that found that Obamacare will result in the equivalent of 2 million U.S. jobs lost by 2017 and 2.5 million jobs destroyed by 2024.
Furthermore, the Investor’s Business Daily running Obamacare jobs scorecard now lists 401 employers nationwide who have slashed thousands of worker hours and jobs due to Obamacare.
According to the RealClearPolitics average of polls, just 38% of Americans now support Obamacare.
