ACA “Jobkilling” Myth

So in the 59 months since the Affordable Care Act was passed, the “job-killing” Obamacare debacle, as the Republicans like to say, the U.S. economy has added some nine million private sector jobs. Of course, the Fox News talking heads are prompt to twist the facts, saying these aren’t “good” jobs, or many are temporary or part-time jobs.  Some of that may be true, but compare the employment growth under Mr. Obama to the 3.6 million jobs lost under Bush. Millions of more American are working now than during the Bush years and millions more also have health insurance. It’s a win-win for America.
