Obama: "No Widespread Evidence That The Affordable Care Act Is Hurting Jobs"


PRESIDENT OBAMA: I guarantee you the opponents of the law will have their cameras ready to document anything that doesn't go completely right and they'll send it to the news folks and they'll say look at this, this thing's not working. But most of the stories you'll hear about how Obamacare just can't work is just not based on facts.

Every time they have predicted something not working, it's worked. They said that these rates would come in real high and everybody's premiums would be sky high and it turns out lo and behold, actually the prices came in lower than we expected, lower than I predicted. That's how well competition and choice work.

They said this would be a disaster in terms of jobs. There's no widespread evidence that the Affordable Care Act is hurting jobs. One of John McCain's former economic advisors admitted just this week, and I'm quoting here, 'I was expecting to see it, I was looking for it, but it's not there. It's not there.'
