The Obama administration claims that there is no evidence of job loss due to Obamacare. They will continue to claim that, despite the fact that things like this keep happening. WVAH-TV reports that Obamacare has contributed to the reasons that three West Virginia daycare centers have to shut down.

Reporter Jenifer McAndrews: Today, scores of parents will have to start looking for a new daycare. Three Kanawha County daycare centers will be closing soon. The daycare centers are at the Capital Complex, Shawnee, and Elk Center schools. The county says they’re too expensive to operate and have been losing $65,000 since the beginning of the school year. The buildings are in major need of repairs, too. And there are concerns about added costs because of the Affordable Care Act. Parents impacted by the closures are frustrated and now worried about waiting list to get their child into another daycare.

I wonder, will some of these parents have to quit a job because they’ve lost their daycare?

It seems that one of these daycare centers is for public employees. And, it appears that all three of them were partly supported by taxes, and have done a poor job of managing their funds.

These are run by the county government and have been losing $65,000.00 over the past six weeks? How?

Does this mean Obamacare is a war on women's rights to free surrogate parenting by the state? There must be a paradox that accounts for this? Maybe it's the paradox of hedonism? When one pursues utopian happiness itself to the exclusion of all other ends, one is invariably miserable.

I'm all for helping women get off of government support, or even get out of horrific marriages or what-have-you by giving them transitional funds to pay for child care.

At least these kids won't be daycare locked.

Answer: Raise our taxes to pay for "public" daycare centers owned and operated, like our public schools, by the government. There's no problem that can't be solved by higher taxes and more government.

The answer to this particular situation would've been to charge the parents enough money to cover the costs of the program in order to not rely on public funds.
