o Apparently Pete Sessions of Texas claims that it costs $5 million for Obamacare to cover one new client. Actually the cost is $4,000.
o In 2011, the House even passed a bill called the Repealing the Job-Killing Health Care Law Act. Health reform, opponents declared, would cripple the economy and in particular cause businesses to force their employees into part-time work. and Obamacare, Jeb Bush declared a few weeks ago, is “the greatest job suppressor in the so-called recovery.” In fact, the ACA went into effect fully this past year, which was the best year of the recovery so far.
