The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office now estimates that Obamacare will do damage equivalent to knocking nearly all of Nevada out of a job. An entire state’s worth of employment will be lost to this destructive law. Reuters reports:

President Barack Obama’s signature healthcare law will contribute to this phenomenon, CBO said, citing new estimates that the Affordable Care Act will cause a larger than-expected reduction in working hours – eliminating the equivalent of about 2.3 million workers in 2021 versus a previous estimate of an 800,000 decline.

Obamacare is the most ill-advised, most destructive, and poorly thought out legislation passed in 200 years of legislative activity by the Congress.

Doesn't that say something about the current incumbents, and indicate their lack of worthiness to govern?

The estimate is low.

The ripple effect after the employee mandate goes into full avalanche mode...will swallow that number like an elephant swallowing a peanut.

Since that is only an estimate can we figure in the err factor built into any government guesstimate (AKA wild ass guess) and tack on a 2x factor to that.

Yeah - its gonna hurt folks. Real bad!
