Democrat Candidate: Americans Working Fewer Hours Because of Obamacare is 'Exciting'

America will lose the equivalent of more than 2 million jobs thanks to Obamacare’s negative impact on productivity, according to the Congressional Budget Office. This is true because Obamacare incentivizes people to make less so they can qualify for government subsidies — dependence, in other words — to pay for their healthcare. Those subsidies are funded by taxing some Americans to pay for the healthcare of others.

To Alex Sink, Democrat candidate for the House in Florida’s 13th District, this is “exciting” news.

REPORTER: “We had this CBO report that predicted that the workforce would shrink as a result of the Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) as people chose to cut back on their working hours so they qualify for healthcare assistance. What was your reaction to this? Is that a devastating effect of ObamaCare?”

SINK: “Oh absolutely not … Actually it’s kind of an exciting prospect.”
