WH: ObamaCare Will Allow Workers To Spend More Time With Their Children

In the Daily White House Press Briefing, this afternoon, Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisors Jason Furman tried to put a happy face on the grim CBO report that predicted Obamacare would reduce the workforce by about 2 million workers by 2017. 

He told reporters that the law would not reduce the hours being offered by employers. 

Instead, Furman said, ObamaCare allowed greater “choice” — for workers to scale back their hours to spend more time with their children, or to leave their jobs to launch a small business or startup.

“This is not businesses cutting back on jobs. This is people having new choices,” Furman said.

Furman took questions from the very skeptical WH press corps.
