Talk about a train wreck of a program.
One of President Obama’s signature pieces of legislation is Obamacare. That’s what he hung his policy hat on; that’s the law that’ll go down in history carrying his name (pathetic, right?), as his special pet project.
But as more and more numbers come in showing the realities of Obamacare, and the sticker shock it’s bringing the average American, one has to wonder:
Why would anybody want to be associated with this legislative, bureaucratic, burdensome, regulatory atrocity?
A sane mind wouldn’t, it seems. Thankfully, Obamacare’s days are numbered and a damn good thing, too:
“Obamacare,” as the Washington Free Beacon reported, “has cost roughly 300,000 small business jobs due to higher health care costs.”
That’s according to a new report from the American Action Forum, an admittedly center-right policy facility that nonetheless used real numbers – you know, the can’t that neither lean politically lefot or right – to come up with its latest findings.
“The report found the law has cost $19 billion in lost wages per year and forced 10,000 small business establishments to close their doors,” the Free Beacon reported.
That’s what Obama wants as his legacy? A long-running trend of job loss and wage depreciation?
Donald Trump, on the other hand, seems perfectly poised to restart that trend, reverse its course, and lay the groundwork for a new and improved version of American economy – one that actually grows, for example, or doesn’t rely on part-time position holders to sell an unemployment rate that falls below double-digits.
Trump, as most in America are already aware, particularly those in the job-seeking circle, has already saved and generated tons of jobs. For instance, he saved 1,000 high-paying Carrier jobs from moving south to Mexico, simply by going to Indiana with his good Indiana governor-turned-vice-president friend Mike Pence, and telling the business executives that better regulatory times are coming.
Bottom line- they don’t have to flee America because…well, because Trump ain’t Obama. And that message seems to be resonating well. Already, surveys are showing optimism on the economic front is up among Americans.
Once again, here’s the big message to Big Business: Trump ain’t Obama. And from one pocketbook to another’s wallet: thank goodness for that.
