Any way you spin it, healthcare law is a 'disincentive to work'

    Congressman Ryan pointed out that this is reality, not because employers will lay people off in an effort to save paying benefits, but because people will actually choose to stay home and not work. This testimony follows on the heels of yesterday's CBO report showing the healthcare law will cost 2.3 million jobs over the next ten years. Overall, productivity as measured by hours worked is expected to drop 1.5% to 2% by 2024.

    In 2010, the administration strongly denied the CBO's estimate of 650,000 job losses due to the ACA. Now we have the same watchdog group increasing its own estimate four-fold. Couple that with the announcement in committee today that the classic flaw of socialism -- a "disincentive to work" -- will set in with the working populace over the next ten years. When is someone going to get smart and start the repeal process on this boneheaded legislation?
