White House Press Secretary Jay Carney has given us the Joke of the Day. The new unemployment numbers are out and they are the lowest since Obama took office. Sound good? Maybe not so much. When you consider that the number of people who have dropped out of the workforce is at an all-time high, these two stats cancel each other out. In other words, the Obama Economy SUCKS because there is a lack of work.
ObamaCare is a BIG reason for this lack of employment. Obama's CBO reported that ObamaCare will cause the loss of over 2 MILLION jobs.
How did Jay Carney respond? He said "the it's empowering that millions will drop-out of the work force." He continued by saying "Over the longer run, CBO finds that because of this law, individuals will be empowered to make choices about their own lives and livelihoods, like retiring on time rather than working into their elderly years or choosing to spend more time with their families. At the beginning of this year, we noted that as part of this new day in health care, Americans would no longer be trapped in a job just to provide coverage for their families, and would have the opportunity to pursue their dreams. This CBO report bears that out, and the Republican plan to repeal the ACA would strip those hard-working Americans of that opportunity."
By Jay's interpretation, you can quit you job if you're bored. It's a good thing that fewer Americans are less economically self-sufficient.
This is the CRAP that's coming form a representative of the President. Don't expect things to get better any sooner.
