Says health care act will hurt hiring

COURTESY TO THE BELLINGHAM HERALDSeptember 1, 2013 

I believe Obamacare, or the Affordable Care Act, is in the process of destroying America as we know it. The program may ultimately help millions of Americans who can't afford quality health care. But for employers, it's a disaster, and the administration knows it. I believe that's why Obama granted an exemption to corporations to delay implementation of the plan.

Until this albatross is removed from around the necks of U.S. employers, you can be sure hiring will remain weak. Instead, we will see more of the same - mediocre increases in monthly job creation. And a large share will come in the form of part-time jobs, which don't require health-care coverage. And the progressives will achieve their ultimate dream of a socialist (and maybe Marxist) America.
