Not only is Obamacare wrecking our healthcare system, it’s destroying the job market, too[1].


Forty-one percent of the businesses surveyed have frozen hiring because of the health-care law known as Obamacare. And almost one-fifth–19 percent– answered “yes” when asked if they had “reduced the number of employees you have in your business as a specific result of the Affordable Care Act.”

The poll was taken by 603 owners whose businesses have under $20 million in annual sales.

Another 38 percent of the small business owners said they “have pulled back on their plans to grow their business” because of Obamacare.

Only 9 percent of the businesses surveyed thought the law would be good for business. Another 39 percent thought the law would not have much effect. More than half–55 percent–said they expected Obamacare to result in higher health care costs.

So, 60% of small business owners have either let people go or frozen hiring because of Obamacare. In the world where politicians actually put the American people before ideology, those numbers alone would create a shock wave so large that it would lead to Obamacare’s repeal. Unfortunately, the Democrats simply don’t care whether Obamacare helps or hurts the country; they only care that it makes it easier to drag the nation to the Left. It’s cold comfort to recognize that conservatives are being proven 100% right about Obamacare when it’s just as apparent that the country is governed by power mad socialists.
