Obamacare will reduce American workforce participation by the equivalent of two million full-time jobs in 2017, according to a new report by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO). Work hours would be reduced by the equivalent of 2.5 million jobs in 2024, a tripling of the previous estimates. David Harsanyi points out that all this could truthfully be described as "killing jobs," liberals argue it is a good thing that Americans will drop out of the labor market and a "lie" to claim that Obamacare is the impetus for impeding job growth.
