    Who needs to work to pay for things like health insurance, housing or food?
    Let the working chumps foot the bill!

    Lil’ Jen, will you be my life coach? I need more positivism.

    Yeah, I get it. For the segment of the general population that have no obligations to meet – such as but not limited to a mortgage or rent, kids to feed and dress, a car payment on a car that runs on gas, uhhhh internet, cable and so on – being “free” from the need to provide your own health coverage would indeed reduce all that stress that comes from being forced to work a job with benefits for the sole purpose of having that health care coverage.

    Retirement is a dream now, never going to happen and when you get to old to be of any worth to anyone Social Security will meet the bills you do not seem to have anymore.

    It keeps getting more and more idiotic ……..

    Are any of you people reading the actual report or just parroting Rush?
    People are not lazing about; they are reducing their NUMBER OF JOBS because their healthcare costs have declined through Obamacare. So they can devote that extra time to personal life — family? Remember? What the GOP claims to value more than anything else — when it comes to gay marriage?
    Or they can be an entrepreneur in your spare time, as Ms. Sorensen points out, which adds to the economy.
    Or elderly people can actually retire, as they had worked for the first fifty years of their lives.
    People are still working hard. But they don’t have to work a second or third job just to pay for healthcare, because costs are down.
    Note that our healthcare costs were the highest in the entire world (and still are, actually, though going down): 50% higher than the second-place country (the UK). You’d think introducing some more efficiency would please the so-called conservatives.

    Oh, yeah, and reducing the number of jobs means that people who couldn’t find one before can now take one of those, reducing unemployment and increasing the number of people working and making money to spend.

    @CCNJ's say the sky is falling

    Many people are able to live without a paycheck. They have a working member of the family, savings, or whatever. But they are stuck in a job because they need the health insurance. The budget report said that a lot of those people would leave their jobs if they had another option to get insurance. ACA gives them that option. And, their leaving the job they don’t want, which can’t be a bad one if it has health benefits, will leave that job open for someone who needs it.

    I’m not sure I follow how when someone becomes unemployed, and the job is taken by another person, it’s a net reduction in unemployment. I guess that must be liberal math.

    @Northern Redman

    No, it’s simple math.
    Three jobs total are available
    Person #1 has all 3 jobs
    Person #2 has 0 jobs, can’t find one
    Person #1 drops one job because she doesn’t need it anymore just to pay healthcare.
    Now Person #1 has 2 jobs (3-1 = 2)
    And Person #2 can apply for the remaining job.
    Still three jobs, but two people employed instead of one.
    Get it now?

    @Enoki

    The PPACA is still a long way from Universal Coverage. And it won’t lead to Single Payer health care.

    @Bruce4671

    People use to work till they died or were unable to then they died. We seem to be being forced back that way. Regressing in fact.

    @motivemagus

    Business men do not like personal lives for their employees. To them work should be first, last and always.

    You conclusion is based upon crass propaganda and caricatures. But you are free to show examples that prove your thesis.
