Or should we say 71k+ jobs “liberated”?
That’s what Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) estimates based upon last week’s Congressional Budget Office (CBO) analysis, Save Jerseyans, which concluded that the United States could see 2.5 million fewer jobs by 2024 than it otherwise would’ve without Obamacare.
71,661 to be exact.

In case you were wondering, ATR arrived at its numbers by looking at Bureau of Labor Statistics tallies for each states’ respective shares of the total national job market. It’s looking to be a rough decade for New Jersey employees (and employers) considering our state’s cumulative pension woes, tax burdens, constitutionally-mandates minimum wage increases and, of course, a failed experiment in nationalizing 1/5 of the country’s economy.
Sorry. It’s a buzzkill. I know. But hey, don’t get too down. Your ‘liberation’ is at hand…
