Rep. Gosar: "These Aren't Just Statistics, These Are People"
CBO Concludes ObamaCare will kill 2.3 million full time jobs

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, U.S. Congressman Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-04) issued the following statement after the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) released its Budget and Economic Outlook, which states that ObamaCare will reduce the number of full-time workers by approximately 2.3 million people through 2021:

"The Obama Administration is responsible for another 2.3 million people who will lose their jobs. Apparently the President believes these people are just collateral damage to his larger agenda. But these aren't just statistics, these are real people, with real families and real lives. These are middle-class families who are struggling to make ends meet and now are losing their jobs.

"This massive job contraction is absolutely tragic, especially because it was as predictable as it was preventable. From day one, many of my Republican colleagues and I spoke out against the disaster that is ObamaCare. Now it's more urgent than ever that we repeal and, most importantly, replace ObamaCare with a patient-centered, free-market alternative, such as the American Health Care Reform Act."
