Obama administration falsely says “there is absolutely no evidence” of any job loss related to Obamacare

The New York Times recently reported:

The Obama administration says “there is absolutely no evidence” of any job loss related to the Affordable Care Act.

Obama is lying.

In November 2012, in response to the Obamacare’s medical device tax, some medical device manufacturers announced plans to layoff employees, including Welch Allyn (275 planned layoffs), Stryker (1,170 planned layoffs), and Medtronic (1,000 planned layoffs).

In December 2012, Al Franken, Elizabeth Warren, John Kerry, and 15 other Democratic hypocrites who supported the passage of Obamacare wrote a letter to Harry Reid, asking him to delay the tax on medical devices, claiming that the tax would hurt job creation in their districts.

But now Obama is claiming that those layoffs never happened.

Note that Franken, Warren, Kerry, and those other hypocrite Democrats aren’t worried about job losses for the country in general. Instead, their only concern is the job losses in their own districts. Meanwhile, conservatives and libertarians are worried about Obamacare causing job losses in the entire country. This is why conservatives and libertarians want Obamacare to be repealed, whereas those Democrats support Obamacare, but want waivers for their own special interests. What hypocrites.

Among those who signed that letter, Elizabeth Warren especially deserves to be called out, because liberals have been saying that she is different than other politicians, that she doesn’t cater to corporations – and yet here she is, trying to get a special exemption for those very same corporations. In reality, it seems that Warren is just as much of a corporate stooge as any other politician.

Obama knows what whatever you tax, you get less of, which is precisely why he raised the cigarette tax in 2009. So surely, he knew that creating a medical device tax would destroy jobs in the medical device industry. And yet he falsely claims that no jobs were lost.

I’m not surprised that Obama made this false claim about there being no job losses due to Obamacare – the list of Obama’s lies keeps getting bigger and bigger.

    IF there is no job loss or even time loss then please have the monkey sitting his arse at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave explain why company after company are CUTTING hours because of OBAMACARE.
    I now have to laugh at his campaign slogan HOPE AND CHANGE….yet he sure did change things and he is now hoping that many people will not notice his bumbling mistakes and if they do I am sure he can sweet talk them into seeing things his way.
