ObamaCare Could Result in Nearly 43,000 Fewer Full Time Workers in Colorado
Denver – Today Americans for Prosperity, the nation’s largest advocate for health care freedom, released a new ad in response to the latest CBO report showing Obamacare will cost the nation the equivalent of 2.3 million jobs and nearly 43,000 in Colorado alone, according to a related report by Americans for Tax Reform.
AFP-CO state director Dustin Zvonek said: “The CBO’s damning estimates confirm what critics of government health care have been saying all along, which is that it will deliver yet another blow to an economy already reeling from this administration’s repeated acts of economic malpractice. But it can’t all be laid at this President’s feet; ObamaCare wouldn’t be possible without the support of Obama loyalists from Colorado, including Senator Mark Udall, who has voted in lockstep with the President on almost every issue. These hits to Colorado’s workforce are on their shoulders and we don’t intend to let people forget it.”
AFP President Tim Phillips said, “We’ve seen how Obamacare is hurting families through cancelled plans and rising costs, but now it is clear the law will hurt American jobs and slow economic growth. The White House can spin this however they want, but the American people want jobs, not Obamacare.”
