    WHAT?!?!
    Barry and his Democrat House and Senate misled and lied?
    Washington- President Barack Obama’s signature health-care law will contribute to this phenomenon, the CBO said, citing new estimates that the Affordable Care Act will cause a larger-than-expected reduction in working hours—eliminating the equivalent of about 2.3 million workers in 2021.
    In 2011, the CBO estimated the law would cause a reduction of about 800,000 full-time equivalent workers.

    CBO estimates that the ACA will reduce the total number of hours worked, on net, by about 1.5 to 2 percent during the period from 2017 to 2024, almost entirely because workers will choose to supply less labor—given the new taxes and other incentives they will face and the financial benefits some will receive,” said the report.

    Americans pay 18% of GDP on health care while the rest of the G8 spend 10.5%. If the USA had a health care system the same as Canada’s it would be spending $800B less and would not have a deficit.

    The latest CBO projection is that in 2021 the ACA will add 1.5% to the unemployment rate, which is three times higher than their previous estimate.


    Of course, that’s just a projection of what unemployment will be in 2021, when there is absolutely no agreement on what unemployment is today. Gallup says one thing, and the US government says something completely different.

    “For crying out loud – you don’t even read what you post.”

    Your post omits that there will be a corresponding reduction in the tax base and an increase in the number of people that become eligible for insurance subsidies. Your choices at that point are to increase taxes proportionally to the change or allow the system to go bankrupt.

    GOP forbid that they have a choice!


    Really? Who sighed the bill into law?

    @Nantucket19

    Rather than working together to try to solve them, the Repubs only want to repeal. They finally came up with a proposal that will INCREASE costs.


    Really? Can you provide a copy of that proposal to review?


    __


    Preventive care costs less in the long run. But insurance companies never cared about this because they always assumed the increased costs would be someone else’s issue


    Really? Is that why Ins Co’s are charging a tax on smokers? Is that why major groups are developing health “Awareness” programs? Is it not true that health Ins Co’s are providing (no co pay) annual check ups and low/no cost mammograms, colonoscopys, etc to the policies? These are all forms of preventative care and have been around for years.


    You seem to be bloviating about personal experience as opposed to what is happening around the nation.

    @Nantucket19

    You were not talking about the uninsurable in you comment. You were referring to the companies not providing preventative care, which is simply untrue. Please keep the conversation to your own comments.


    No link to your claim that the GOP proposed and INCREASE in cost? I have to go to work now so you have 10 hours to find that link. Thank you

    Please explain the paradox of the Scandinavian countries. Happiest people, strong economies, …. And no, it isn’t because they don’t have immigrants, they do.

    And the ACA is NOT socialist. Those are all PRIVATE insurance companies, not owned by the government.
