Contrary to what Americans were Told … The CBO Says Obamacare Is Slowing Growth & Will Kill the Equivalent 2.5 Million Jobs in America Over the Next Decade


Not only is the Affordable Healthcare Act not affordable, it is also not the job creator that it was promised to be. As reported at The Hill, according to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) said today that Obamacare is likely to kill 2.5 million jobs, while slowing overall economic growth over the next decade. This colossal fiasco is a nightmare for Americans and for America. The CBO also projected that “as a result of the ACA, between 6 million and 7 million fewer people will have employment-based insurance coverage each year from 2016 through 2024 than would be the case in the absence of the ACA.” This from the government’s own bean counters. Folks, you might want to remember this during the 2014 midterm elects as O-care was passed 100% by Democrats with 0% GOP support.


Those gullible fools believed that it was affordable, they believed it was a job creator, hahahahaha …

The new healthcare law will cost the nation the equivalent of 2.5 million workers in the next decade, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimated in a report released Tuesday.

The nonpartisan agency found the reform law’s negative effects on employment would be “substantially larger” than what it had previously anticipated.

It said the equivalent of 2.3 million workers would be lost by 2021, compared to its previous estimate of 800,000, and that 2.5 million workers would be lost by 2024. It also projected that labor force compensation would be reduced by 1 percent from 2017 to 2024 — twice its previous estimate.

Although the CBO projects that total employment and compensation will increase over the coming decade, that increase will be smaller than it would have been in the absence of the healthcare law.

The findings immediately roiled the debate over the healthcare law on Capitol Hill ahead of this year’s midterm elections.

Full CBO Report.

Remember when then Speaker of the House Nanacy Pelosi (CA-D) told us that Obamacare was not just about health security but it was also about jobs? She stated that Obamacare  was a job creator and would create 4 million jobs and 400,000 jobs immediately? LIAR!!! You can watch the longer version of Pelosi’s lies on Obamacare HERE. What a pack of lies these people told to the American people and it was this fraud, along with other that got Barack Obama, the worst president in modern times, reelected.

CBO Delivers Sends Death Blow to Obamacare … you live by the CBO and you die by it as well.

Watch Rep. Nancy Pelosi (CA-D) Spin Through Her Teeth, Stumble & Stammer as She Tries to Rewrite What She Previously Promised in Obamacare

Good grief, House Democrat Minority Leader sounded like Porky Pig this morning on NBC’s ‘Meet the Press’ as she struggled to defend her past words and promises.

It was not meant to be a trick or gotcha question, but  David Gregory confounded Pelosi on NBC’s Meet the Press’ when she was asked a simple question regarding keeping her promises the the American People. But for moonbat Nancy Pelosi, she could not seem to even muster a lame apology like Obama. Not for this liberal progressive true believer.  She did her best Harry Houdini trying to contort and twist out of a straight jacket and Bill Clinton in parsing her words. Isn’t it interesting that she now uses the words, “there isn’t anything in the law,” as opposed to, “If you like what you have, you can keep it.”  I hardly think the millions of individuals who have lost their insurance coverage in California Ms. Pelosi care about semantics.

“Let me commend the president. He’s gracious and he’s taking responsibility but that doesn’t mean there isn’t anything in the law that said if you like what had before 2010 you couldn’t keep it.”

But wait, that is not what Nancy Pelosi said in the past. From The Weekly Standard comes San Fran Nan getting busted in a lie. But then again what should we expect from Democrats who have been caught in a major lie with Obamacare making promises to the American people they very well knew was not true. What is amazing is that her web site even to this day says, “Keep your doctor, and your current plan, if you like them.”

Pelosi_Keep your healthcare

From: Democrat Leader – Nancy Pelosi

“Did I ever tell my constituents that if they liked their plan they could keep it?” Pelosi asked. “I would have if I’d ever met anybody who liked his or her plan. But that was not my experience.”

In fact, Pelosi said in 2009: “If you like what you have, you can keep it.” Pelosi’s website still states: “Keep your doctor, and your current plan, if you like them.”

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) Says Glitches & Technical Problems in Rollout of Obamacare Trainwreck Were “Unacceptable”

If it looks like a train wreck, sounds like a train wreck and operates like a train wreck … ITS A TRAIN WRECK!!!

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) says that the glitches and technical problems that have plagued the rollout of President Obama’s landmark health reform law were “unacceptable” and have to be fixed. Actually Nancy, the fact that this law was forced down the throats of the American people on a partisan Democrat vote is unacceptable. Pelosi can also be heard in the video below in her hyper-partisan tone that both sides were not equally to blame for the government shutdown and her  ad hominem attacks against those who are for less government, wasteful spending.

Previously, former Obama Press Secretary Robert Gibbs called the rollout “Excruciatingly Embarrassing” and some one needed to be fired.

The Hill:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Sunday that the glitches and technical problems that have plagued the rollout of President Obama’s landmark health reform law were “unacceptable” and have to be fixed.

“As far as the Affordable Care Act, as I call it, the fact is, that, yes, what has happened is unacceptable in terms of the glitches,” Pelosi told ABC News’s “This Week.”

“This has to be fixed, but what doesn’t have to be fixed is the fact that tens of millions of more people will have access to affordable, quality healthcare. That no longer having a preexisting medical condition will bar you from getting affordable care,” Pelosi said.

Last week, The Wall Street Journal reported that the online insurance exchanges have created enrollment forms that misreport family members, create duplicate entries, or clear important data fields.

John Kerry: He Was For Assad, Before He was Against Him and Called Him Hitler … Kerry Seen in Pic Dining with Assad

How many of you would have had dinner with Adolf Hitler or Saddam Hussein?

Talk about your embarrassing pics and a lack of credibility. The UK Daily Mail has a 2009 photo of John Kerry having a pleasant dinner with Syrian president Bashar al-Assad and their wives. As reported at the Weekly Standard,  Kerry has met with Assad on numerous occasions and once lauded Assad in 2011 as being a “very generous”. Hmm, that is a far cry from what Kerry is saying these days. It would appear that Obama’s Secretary of State has a severe credibility issue. I guess Kerry was for Assad before he was against him. How is it that Kerry goes from an intimate dinner for four to calling him the Hitler of our time. Really? I mean seriously, how many get to dine with Hitler?  And this is the guy who is trying to sell us on attacking Syria?

Once again we see John Kerry, reporting for duty or is it reporting for dinner?


An astonishing photograph of John Kerry having a cozy and intimate dinner with Bashar al-Assad has emerged at the moment the U.S Secretary of State is making the case to bomb the Syrian dictator’s country and remove him from power.

Kerry, who compared Assad to Adolf Hitler and Saddam Hussein yesterday, is pictured around a small table with his wife Teresa Heinz and the Assads in 2009.

Assad and Kerry, then a Massachusetts senator, lean in towards each other and appear deep in conversation as their spouses look on.

A waiter is pictured at their side with a tray of green drinks, believed to be lemon and crushed mint

The picture was likely taken in February 2009 in the Naranj restaurant in Damascus, when Kerry led a delegation to Syria to discuss finding a way forward for peace in the region.

From 2009, the Weekly Standard:

Well, I personally believe that — I mean, this is my belief, okay?” Kerry said. “But President Assad has been very generous with me in terms of the discussions we have had. And when I last went to — the last several trips to Syria — I asked President Assad to do certain things to build the relationship with the United States and sort of show the good faith that would help us to move the process forward.”

Looks like John Kerry has protesters at his home telling him “Hands off Syria” and it does not look like a Tea Party rally.

Hey, and go to Patterico’s Pontification …  look who is shaking the hand of Assad, it is none other than two faced Nancy Pelosi. I guess she had to shake his hand in order to see what a miserable, murderous dictator he was.

Nancy Pelosi Says, I Don’t Want to Be Speaker Again … “No, that’s not my thing. I did that.”

Nancy Pelosi says,  I Don’t Want to Be Speaker Again … it’s not my bag, baby.

Nancy Pelosi, otherwise known as SanFran Nan, told the National Journal that she was not interested in being the Speaker of the House again, been there done that. We can only hope that Pelosi or any other Democrat for that fact does not become Speaker in 2014 or in the next decade. It was Pelosi and the Democrat controlled House and Senate along with President Barack Obama who brought us the train wreck known as Obamacare and the disastrous job recovery. Good grief, do we really need more of, “we need to pass the bill in order for you to find out what is in it.”


NJ It’s become something of a pastime in D.C. for people to feel bad for Speaker John Boehner for having an unwieldy caucus. Do you feel for him?

PELOSI I don’t comment on their caucus, their leadership, or the rest of it. He’s the speaker of the House. I respect the job. The position that he holds is a very exalted one. I wish his members would respect his position as much as I do. But if the purpose of your call is for me to get in sniping at the Republicans on how they do their business, I will talk about how it affects the American people.

NJ Do you want to be speaker again?

PELOSI No, that’s not my thing. I did that.

Remember when Nancy Pelosi sang the praises of Obamacare?

UPDATE I: The Hill is reporting that Pelosi’s office is pushing back on the reports that the former Speaker does not want the gavel again. I beg you America, do not let this woman or any Democrat near the Speaker’s gavel.

National Journal ran an update Friday afternoon indicating that the actual question was worded slighted less directly — “Do you wish for the chance for the Speaker position again?” — but the publication did not change the text of the article.

“The recorded audio file supports the edited transcript,” the magazine said.

Pelosi’s office said the difference in wording is significant, and Hammill argued that Pelosi was somewhat dismissive of the question because it suggested she was fighting to win back the majority for individual gain. The fight, Hammill said, is much larger than her.

“Leader Pelosi is working hard to win back a Democratic Majority and has long answered press questions by saying what’s important is Democrats winning the House back,” he said.

Easter Sunday, a Day of Rest … Not For Democrat as Obama, Pelosi, McAuliffe Issue Easter Sunday Fundraising Appeals

What ever happened to separation of Church and State?

The Democrats just have no shame and no understanding that there needs to be a day of rest from their political begging for money. Sunday, a day of rest from the political beg for money? Nope, not for Democrats. Then again, they believe that Democrat party politics is a religion. As reported at the Washington Times, at least three top party officials dispatched fundraising emails Sunday.  They went so far as to have the DCCC send out an updated fundraising email  from House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi that didn’t even mention Easter … “We could really do this! If we can hit 200,000 donations before tonight’s FEC deadline, it would send a blistering message to Speaker Boehner and the Republicans. Donate $3 before MIDNIGHT and your gift will be triple-matched.”  Good grief, give it a rest.  What would Jesus say?

Easter Sunday is not a day of rest for the Democrats’ moneychangers. At least three top party officials dispatched fundraising emails Sunday in their bid to reach loyal Democrats in between church and Easter dinner.

It’s just the latest sign that politics and fundraising have become as regular as shopping at Sears or Walmart, which also open on Easter.

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Sunday morning sent out an updated fundraising note from House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi that didn’t even mention Easter.

Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) says Democrats are “in the red” and are broke. That’s ok Debbie, thanks to Barack Obama and Democrats, so is America.

Thanks to Obamacare … Businesses Are Hiring Less And Laying Off Workers

Former Speaker of the House Democrat Nancy Pelosi may have told only one truth in her political life when she said, We have to pass Obamacare to find out what’s in it. However, it was like playing Russian roulette in doing so. Guess what America, there was a bullet in the chamber.

As reported at The Hill, the Federal Reserve released an edition of its so-called “beige book,” that said the 2010 healthcare law is being cited as a reason for layoffs and a slowdown in hiring.  The complex and all encompassing law is not just about healthcare, its about control of ones life and the government take over of healthcare. Why would one think that there are over a thousand pages? As reported at the Weekly Standard, that Obamacare baffles even its ardent supporters as was the case with Donna Brazile who famously tweeted her confusion a week or so ago. The bill is awesomely complex and the claims made for it by its authors and supporters are impossibly optimistic many of whom may not really expect it to perform as sold.  Obama, Pelosi, Reed, Democrats and the liberal MSM all knowingly misrepresented Obamacare and inflicted this Hell on America.

America, Pelosi, Obama and Reed at laughing at you!

The Federal Reserve on Wednesday released an edition of its so-called “beige book,” that said the 2010 healthcare law is being cited as a reason for layoffs and a slowdown in hiring.

“Employers in several Districts cited the unknown effects of the Affordable Care Act as reasons for planned layoffs and reluctance to hire more staff,” said the March 6 beige book, which examines economic conditions across various Federal Reserve districts across the country.

That line was found in a section of the Fed’s report on employment, wages and prices. That same section also said the Atlanta district noted that healthcare regulations are so burdensome there is a shortage of compliance specialists.

“Atlanta noted a lack of compliance specialists due to heavier regulations in the healthcare industry,” it said.

Remember when Nancy Pelosi told us that Obamacare would create 400,000 jobs, almost immediately? She stated that this job was not only about health care, it was about jobs too. As it turns out, it was about neither and you bought it hook, line and sinker America.

Obamacare is a nightmare for America and now it appears that the cowardly establishment Republicans  do not have the spine to defund this beast.

A Delusional San Fran Nan Pelosi Denies Federal Deficit Is Due To Spending Problem … “It is almost a false argument to say we have a spending problem”

More genius from the LEFT …

This morning on FOX News Sunday, former Democrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi told Chris Wallace “it was almost a false argument to say the US has a spending problem.” That is correct, San Fran Nan actually said that the US did not have a spending problem. She not only said it once, she said it twice. Yea, no spending problem, that’s why the federal deficit has been over a trillion dollars every year since Obama has been in office. Could some one explain to me how these people are elected?

From The Hill:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Sunday called sequestration “a bad idea all around” and urged a balance of spending cuts and closed tax loopholes to avoid it.

Pelosi rebuffed GOP calls for the sequester replacement to focus exclusively on targeting more spending cuts and entitlement reforms.

“It is almost a false argument to say we have a spending problem. We have a budget deficit problem that we have to address,” she told Fox News’s Chris Wallace on Sunday.

Pelosi added that the deficit and debt are at “immoral levels” and “must be reduced.”

“It isn’t as much a spending problem as much as it is priorities,” she said, arguing that tax subsidies were a better target than additional cuts that could hit programs such as education.


A recent FOX News poll indicated that 83% of Americans think that the federal government has a spending problem. Um, how did Obama win reelection again?  How does Pelosi come up with such an idiotic statement and actually keep a straight face? Could the Botox have finally got to her brain, the Lonely Conservative seems to think so and with all that plastic surgery, it’s rather easy to keep a straight face. BTW House Minority Leader Pelosi, with all the money that we have spent on education, it has failed our children.

House Democrat Minority Leader Pelosi Says Tax Hikes Must Be Part of Next Deficit Deal … Dems Look for Additional $1 Trillion in new Taxes in 2013

And you bought the notion that Democrats just wanted to tax the rich … Obama, Pelosi, Reid and the Democrats have not even yet started to tax “We the People”.

House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi says that tax hikes must be a part of the next fiscal deal. Hmm, they have already taxed the rich and now they are coming after the rest. Never forget that Democrats want to tax your dreams as well. Elections have consequences and sadly too many suckers bought Obama’s class warfare rhetoric and now ALL Americans will face tax increases.

From The Hill, Democrats want nothing to do with cutting back their wasteful and over the top spending, they just want to continually tax We the People . At some point the American people need to take the credit card away from these children.

Democrats say they want to raise as much as $1 trillion in new revenues through tax reform later this year to balance Republican demands to slash mandatory spending.

Democratic leaders have had little time to craft a new position for their party since passing a tax deal Tuesday that will raise $620 billion in revenue over the next ten years.

The emerging consensus, however, is that the next installment of deficit reduction should reach $2 trillion and about half of it should come from higher taxes.

This sets up tax reform as one of the biggest fights of the 113th Congress, which began on Thursday.

Republicans say tax reform should be revenue neutral. Additional revenues collected by eliminating or curbing tax breaks and deductions should be used to lower rates.

Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has dismissed the possibility of negotiating additional tax increases.

House Democrat Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi Botches Speech: “We Don’t Have the Majority but We Have the Gavel” Um, Really?

Nancy Pelosi may want to look the definition of “minority” leader up.

Yesterday during an interview with reporters, House Minority Leader San Fran Nan had a wishful thinking moment and told reporters, “We don’t have the majority but we have the gavel.” Hmm, not so fast Nancy. Last time I checked the Republicans still held the House. Pelosi then corrected her gaffe and got a good laugh out of it. I guess Nancy needed to read her prepared speech before she knew what was in it. What is frightening is that this is what Democrats call the leader of their party in the House.  Pelosi certainly presents good material to write on, but does little to further the help that America needs during these trying times. She announced that she would seek another term as Minority leader.

For all those who think that Obama has a mandate because he won the 2012 Presidential election, by only 2% might I add, who thinks that Pelsoi is going to back down in the House as the minority party?
