The one-two punch: Virtually as many Americans will lack health coverage in 10 years as before the law was passed — but 2 million fewer will be working than if the law hadn’t passed.
One killer detail comes on Page 111, where the report projects: “As a result of the ACA, between 6 million and 7 million fewer people will have employment-based insurance coverage each year from 2016 through 2024 than would be the case in the absence of the ACA.”
Have you seen how they're trying to spin this? Harry "The Rat" Reid: "The report “rightfully says that people shouldn’t have job lock,” said Senator Harry Reid of Nevada, the Democratic leader. “We live in a country where we should be free agents. People can do what they want.”
The New York Times editors also think this is a good thing! Why, you won't be held down to a job! You'll have more choices! Isn't it wonderful that Obamacare is going to cost you your job? I wish I was making this up. Mark Steyn was talking about this today when I was out running around. He's filling in for Rush Limbaugh and was covering this. Can you believe what Reid said above? Yes, you can do whatever you want, as long as you buy this health care coverage we're FORCING on you.
Here's the White House spin, regurgitated by Jay "Twit" Carney:
However, the White House focused on the report's claim that the loss of jobs will not be due to employers cutting back, but due to Americans choosing to voluntarily leave the workforce. White House spokesman Jay Carney said in a statement the report proves ObamaCare is allowing Americans to be "empowered" to make such a choice.
"At the beginning of this year, we noted that as part of this new day in health care, Americans would no longer be trapped in a job just to provide coverage for their families, and would have the opportunity to pursue their dreams," he said. "This CBO report bears that out, and the Republican plan to repeal the ACA would strip those hard-working Americans of that opportunity."
Don't you see, you idiots? You should be thanking Obama that he is costing you your full time job! Now you can be free! This is enough to give me indigestion. Only fools can still support this administration, I'm convinced. The bottom line is we have spent $2 trillion dollars on Obamacare, and THE NUMBER OF UNINSURED IS THE SAME. However, it's being touted as a success by the people sent to Washington to represent the people, but are instead robbing us. It's time to throw them out, people.
***There's a great story here about a man who has been diagnosed with cancer. He has a daughter named Emma. He has been writing little notes on napkins and putting them in her lunchbox since she was in the second grade. The doctors say he will not live much longer, so he is committed to writing 826 notes to be put in her lunch every day until she graduates from high school. He only has 86 more to go. What a great Dad!
Maybe you should have brushed a little of that off the top...

Sound may be your next deadly threat.
The European Space Agency’s Large European Acoustic Facility (that’s LEAF for short) has a 36-foot wide by 54-foot high wall of sound designed to simulate the noise of a rocket launch. But at 154 decibels, a person couldn't withstand the power of the force -- and would ultimately perish from it, the agency said. It’s not meant as a weapon, however, but rather designed to stress-test pricey satellites before attaching them to actual rockets.
