ACA Lowers Unemployment-Facts
1. Everyone agrees that unemployment is way too high and that there are many jobless folks who don't even show up in the unemployment statistics.
2. Therefore, any job that is vacated by someone (who only needed it for the benefits) will clearly be immediately filled by someone who needs a job. That lowers unemployment.
3. Some people (hopefully many) will use the new opportunities afforded by the ACA to start their own business' and hire others. This too will lower unemployment.
The ACA won't solve all of our economic problems and it won't give us a perfect health care system, but it is a step in the right direction and it will create new jobs and lower unemployment according to the CBO report and to anyone with an open mind and common sense.
