When the CBO report came out last week, tripling its previous estimate of potential job losses via Obamacare, the number should have been shocking to everyone. Whenever a policy strips 2.3 million people from the full-time job market, one might expect concern on both ends of the political spectrum. Not so.
Instead, we have the spectacle of Democrats defending the loss of jobs by saying it’s a good thing that people won’t be locked in to their jobs—that they will have free time to do other things instead. That’s great. I like doing other things, too. But paying the bills is kind of important, isn’t it?
