Ive never used the word right. I don't thinking having community fire fighters is a right. But we do use tax dollars for them.
And yes, the CBO said directly, under oath, this was not a jobs killer. Made clear the distinction between the person being fired and the person who now doesn't have to worry about insurance, so they can pursue other endeavors. As for a decrease in productivity, and different argument, you have many factors involved in that, including as the CBO points out in another report, baby boomers leaving the work force, as expected.
And no one is telling anyone to work less. An insurance subsidy doesn't make up for a reduced salary if they need the money. So, I think there is a lot of reading into the report what isn't really there.
