H.R. 6079 would repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA), with the exception of one subsection that has no budgetary effect. This estimate reflects the spending and revenue projections in CBO’s March 2012 baseline as adjusted to take into account the effects of the recent Supreme Court decision regarding the ACA.

    For various reasons discussed in the report, the estimated budgetary effects of repealing the ACA by enacting H.R. 6079 are close to, but not equivalent to, an estimate of the budgetary effects of the ACA with the signs reversed.

    What Is the Impact of Repealing the ACA on the Federal Budget?
    Assuming that H.R. 6079 is enacted near the beginning of fiscal year 2013, CBO and JCT estimate that, on balance, the direct spending and revenue effects of enacting that legislation would cause a net increase in federal budget deficits of $109 billion over the 2013–2022 period.
    Specifically, we estimate that H.R. 6079 would reduce direct spending by $890 billion and reduce revenues by $1 trillion between 2013 and 2022, thus adding $109 billion to federal budget deficits over that period.

    Is this your way of acknowledging that Obamacare is a one trillion dollar tax increase?

This is not rocket science. You act like you have no knowledge of the history of labor laws in this country. Without labor laws, labor has always come up with the short end of the stick, as the management generally is most interested in their own bottom line, regardless of what it means for labor.
    You do violence to the Constitution and to our history.

    Promoting the general welfare does not mean taking care of each citizen. But you already know this.

    They have no skills or they would have jobs. They have worthless, expensive educations but they don't have any idea how to actually do anything of value.

    There are 4.1 unemployed job seekers for every one available job according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

    It makes perfect sense to those who would open their minds to see it.

    The prof with the tale about dogs hit it right out of the park and we have your negative reaction to it to prove it. It is similar to the movie LITTLE BIG MAN where an Indian scout is told by General Custer that he is the perfect reverse barometer.

    It certainly is humorous to watch those who deride Obama for supposedly destroying the labor market in it's entirety, proceed to lay the blame at the feet of the unemployed individuals themselves for their perceived lack of skill or initiative even though all statistics point to the contrary. As if the average American individual suddenly lost the will or skill to be a productive member of the work force, a phenomenon which just so happened to coincide with the collapse of the housing market.

    I know people with skills and educations in areas valued. They cannot get a job in their field and many are too skilled and educated to get jobs in other fields where they are simply over qualified and employers are reluctant to hire them figuring they will not stay very long.

    sounds like a most excellent reason to get rid of all the government obstacles to business growth

    Perhaps. And perhaps it just makes sense to those who have none of their own.

    This post makes even less sense than your last. Perhaps you should turn in for the night and get some rest.
