Like Clockwork… Liberal Media Cheers Americans Quitting Their Jobs to Live Off Government Teat

Posted by Jim Hoft on Sunday, February 9, 2014, 6:46 PM



 

 


This week the CBO reported that Obamacare may cut the full-time workforce by 2.5 million jobs.
 Democratic politicians and the White House cheered the news saying, “Opportunity created by affordable, quality health insurance allows families in America to make a decision about how they will work, or if they will work.”

Only Democrats could celebrate the fact that millions will lose their work and be broke thanks to their failed policy.

And, like clockwork, the Washington Post found one American from Indiana who quit their job thanks to Obamacare.

The Washington Post reported:


Count Polly Lower among those who quit their jobs because of the health-care law.

It happened in September, when her boss abruptly changed her job description. She went from doing payroll, which she liked, to working on her boss’ schedule, which she loathed. At another time, she might have had to grit her teeth and accept the new position because she needed the health benefits.

But with the health-care law soon to take effect, she simply resigned — and hasn’t looked back.

“It was wonderful. It was very freeing,” said Lower, 56, of Bourbon, Ind., who is now babysitting her 5-year-old granddaughter full time. With the help of federal subsidies that kicked in Jan. 1, she is paying less than $500 a month for health coverage for herself and her husband.

Lower is an example of the latest controversy to spring up around the Affordable Care Act: its impact on the workforce.

The equivalent of about 2.5 million Americans will quit their jobs, cut their hours or stop looking for work during the next decade because of new benefits available under the health-care law, according to recent Congressional Budget Office estimates that have renewed debate over the program’s effect on the economy.

Doug Ross has more thoughts here.

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.

And where, pray tell, is she getting that $500 a month? I'm sure her 5-year-old granddaughter doesn't pay that kind of money.

"The Tea Party has a right to feel cheated.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?

I'd like to say I'm brilliant, but that's clearly not true. I can be observant, at times. I told you that by summer, obamacare would be the greatest gift ever given to the American people, (according to the US media).

From talking to people around me, I have two more observations:

- Income inequality, if they sharpen the focus is a winning issue. Scoff all you want, this issue will highlight the media narrative that Republicans are for big business and Democrats for the people. Americans ARE that stupid.

- Women. We don't care how qualified, we don't care who, Americans want a woman president.

Look out for Elizabeth Warren.

Shhhhhh she will get an Obamaphone and run her unicorn farting skittles business at her home. She will make a zillion dollars a week. This is not even including the fairy dust business on the side.

If all the young women aren't going to buy Obamacare, just where will they get their birth control pills?  And even if they have Obamacare, I believe there is a $5,000 deductible which includes medications?  Is this something the MSM has failed to explore? :whistle:
