"More than 6 million Americans have now signed up for private insurance under the Affordable Care Act, according to the White House, with just four days to go until the end of its first open enrollment period.
While traveling in Italy on Thursday, President Obama shared the news in a conference call with thousands of health-care navigators and volunteers helping enroll people on state and federal marketplaces."
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.
