Obamacare is 3-years-old today and getting ready to get into its really destructive toddler stage. The pain comes next year, but the anticipation of its economic destruction has already retarded job growth in all the companies wary of it, so there’s that.
I still remember it’s birth. Everyone was like, “Help us, Obama! The economy is horrible and we need jobs!” And Obama was like, “I don’t care about that. Here’s a massively expensive health care scheme instead!” And now businesses are struggling to breath with this new boot on their neck — and it hasn’t even really started yet.
Luckily, Obama was reelected, so he’ll be around to help businesses in the Obamacare transition from fear to pain. They’ll come to him with their complaints, and he’ll smile and nod and think about golf.
Anyway, happy birthday Obamacare. You’ll have to eat the cake to find out what it’s in it.
Don’t eat the cake.
