Nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office Finds Obamacare Will Kill Jobs

Feb 4, 2014 Issues: Economy and Jobs

WASHINGTON− Congressman Chuck Fleischmann released the following statement regarding the Congressional Budget Office’s (CBO) new Budget and Economic Outlook.

“Americans across the country are already feeling the crushing burden of President Obama’s policies.  Sadly, this report confirms that even more horrific effects are to come.  According to the nonpartisan CBO report, by 2021, we will lose 2.3 million jobs due solely to Obamacare. While the President continually claims his policies are intended to grow the middle class and create new economic opportunities for the American people, this report makes it clear they are doing the opposite. 

“House Republicans have made immense strides to reduce the debt burden and roll back the President’s job-crushing policies.  Hopefully this report will help the President and Senate Democrats realize that their policies aren’t working and will finally bring them to the table to work with us to get Americans back to work.”
