Greg Sargent of the WaPo denounces those lying Republican liars who said that the new CBO report indicated that ObamaCAre would cost us 2 million jobs.
If the Evil Republicans can dictate this sort of coverage they should use that vast power more often.
I subscribe to an alternative view - non-economists might find that CBO report to be a bit of a baffler. Greg Sargent, to seize an example as if at random, is seriously promoting the new Democratic "job-lock" theory, although the CBO report is quite clearly describing a somewhat different phenomenon.
Well. In a bit of something for everyone, Dana Milbank of the WaPo hammers the White House response:
This is grim news for the White House and for Democrats on the ballot in November. This independent arbiter, long embraced by the White House, has validated a core complaint of the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) critics: that it will discourage work and become an ungainly entitlement. Disputing Republicans’ charges is much easier than refuting the federal government’s official scorekeepers.
Follw that surprising link to the Heritage blog. A program that discourages the working class from working or getting married - what could go wrong?
