From the article:
The article continues:“I know for a fact that the mandates in ObamaCare are discouraging the creation of new jobs,” said Tennessee GOP Sen. Lamar Alexander, the third-highest-ranking member of the Senate Republican leadership. “And I will be specific. I met with the chief executives of the chain restaurants in America, who are the largest employer in America after the federal government—especially of those who are low-income.”
So, we are talking worst case scenario there will be less minimum wage jobs at joints like Burger King and Hardees due to the Healthcare Reform Bill. The article mentions no impact at all to any jobs other than very low wage jobs. For example, when my company had its annual healthcare coverage meeting this year, the topic of health care reform came up, and we were told that it was having no effect at all on our coverage or costs because the mandated coverage levels were far lower than what most companies provide their employees anyway.The same CBO report found that approximately 650,000 mainly lower-paid and lower-skilled workers could find themselves out of a job as a result of the health care law’s implementation during the second half of the decade.
What is it with you hardcore right wingers? It seems the only jobs you guys care about are jobs that pay nothing to begin with. The fact is, a slave has a job. What people want are jobs that they can actually earn a living from.
