    Minnesota - the state that brought you Michele Bachmann, Keith Ellison and Al Franken. Then we wonder why people think we're a joke....

    You seem to have more knowledge of this CBO report...can YOU cite the report and the provisions of the report that show that the loss of 2 million jobs is a 'good thing'?

    I'm talking about the stupid meme that people will now have time to cook dinner, or paint paintings, or play golf, or what ever....It's dumb, and highly insulting to those in the country today that are working as hard as they can to put food on the table, and keep the roof over their heads....We can play semantics with the demo talking point all we want, but it's not a good idea in my opinion to express an opinion that it really is 'no big deal' that people are struggling....Or ignoring that altogether.

    I didn't think Jesse was from Minnesota anymore, he moved to the famous 'parts unknown'.

    Its part of that new way to fire people. Hey...Tom...can you come on in here? Remember how you always wanted to spend more time sitting on your couch watching Jerry Springer? Well...congrats Big Guy! Starting next week you get to sleep in, watch Springer, take long walks, and not have to put up with that asshole Tony any more!

    Your question is invalid based on the CBO report. The CBO is not saying 2mil people will be losing their jobs. In fact the report says Obamacare will increase economic activity.

    Congressional Budget Office data taken out of context as ‘job’ losses tied to health-care law - The Washington Post

    The Facts

    In its report, the CBO said the Affordable Care Act, a.k.a. Obamacare, would reduce the number of hours worked by the equivalent of 2.5 million full-time workers by 2025. That means that workers will decide to reduce their hours, not that employers are reducing the number of jobs.
    A man without fear is a fool, a man that succumbs to his fear is a coward and a brave man acknowledges fear yet presses on.
