Sebelius Twists Truth on ObamaCare Job Losses

And the ObamaCare lies continue…

Reacting to a Congressional Budget Office study that reported ObamaCare will result in a significant number of job losses, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius refuted the job loss findings.

The CBO found workers would work less total hours amounting to an estimated 2 million and 2.5 million fewer jobs in 2017 and 2024, respectively.

“There is absolutely no evidence, and every economist will tell you this, that there is any job-loss related to the Affordable Care Act,” Sebelius told reporters in Orlando, Fla., on Monday. “Part-time physicians are actually down since 2010, not up. The number of full-time workers continues to increase. I know that’s a popular myth that continues to be repeated but it just is not accurate.”

The medical device industry promptly challenged Sebelius’ claim.

A story on the job losses in the medical device industry by The Daily Caller said:

A new report from a top health care industry trade organization contradicts Kathleen Sebelius’ recent claim that no job loss will occur under Obamacare.

Obamacare’s medical device tax has already created a job loss of 33,000 in the medical device industry and 132,0o0 more job losses are expected, according to a new report from the industry trade group the Advanced Medical Technology Association (AdvaMed), obtained by the Daily Caller.

So there we have it, more truth twisting from the Obama administration.
