” Faced with the Congressional Budget Office’s determination that Obamacare would cost 2.5 million full-time jobs, the Obama Administration has declared that that’s not a bug, it’s a feature: “Full-time jobs”? Who needs that? With “free” health care, Americans will also be free to dump the daily grind of a steady job with benefits and finally write that opera they’ve always wanted to compose. Obamacare is “liberating“, declared The New York Times. At last Americans will be free to “choose” whether they want to spend their days working or writing poetry or cooing multicultural dirges to their children. It’s all about “choice”. I’m pro-choice and I vote lie around the house all day watching TV.
I wouldn’t disagree with the new Democrat conventional wisdom that many people would, if they could, choose not to work. In many American families, two adults with college degrees work full-time to live as well as one provider with a high-school diploma did in the 1950s.
