After a Congressional Budget Office report was released last week claiming ObamaCare would cost nationwide losses equivalent to over 2.3 million jobs, Rep. Keith Ellison went on record saying Americans losing their jobs is a good thing.
“We are going to have parents being able to come home, working reasonable hours. People are going to be able to retire. People might actually be able to cook dinner rather than have to order out and get some takeout.”
“If you look at international comparisons country by country, Americans work way more that the average of industrialized countries around the world.”
Here, also, are Rep. Chris Van Hollen, Rep. Mark Pocan (D-WI) and Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) spinning the coming job losses as a good thing.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said as much recently as well:
“What we see is that people are leaving their jobs because they are no longer job-locked,”
“They are following their aspirations to be a writer; to be self-employed; to start a business. This is the entrepreneurial piece. So it’s not going to cost jobs. It’s going to shift how people make a living and reach their aspirations.”
“Yesterday, the CBO projected that by 2021, the Affordable Care Act will enable more than 2 million workers to escape ‘job-lock’ — the situation where workers remain tied to employers for access to health insurance benefits,”
Here she is a few years ago encouraging people to sign up for ObamaCare and quit their jobs.
I don’t know what’s worse, having to listen to the disgusting lying or having to listen to the condescending arrogance from people making the decision for you and I about how much we should be working and whether we should be working at all.
If we keep going down this path and continue to allow these people to have free reign a great many people are going to be hurting in this country and around the world.
