Cons: How could insuring 30 million more people cause job loss?
Mitt Romney says Obamacare kills jobs. Obamacare will insure over 30 million more people than are now insured. Those people will go to doctors' offices and hospitals now. This will create jobs in the medical field and in supporting fields (makers of medical equipment and supplies, etc.). How can Obamacare possibly be a job killer? Please explain.

ACA will do the opposite. The Health Care Industry will BOOM. It will be Silicon Valley all over the USA. Jobs GALORE! The G0P knows this and it will end the Depression we are currently in.

How is putting 30 million more people into the system going to give us lower costs? Thats the question I'd like for liberals to answer. There is going to be a shortage of Doctors, I know that.

The high cost of pensions and benefits like healthcare has been what is killing jobs. Controlling medical costs with universal healthcare would go a LONG way to making it cheaper for business to operate.

That way they don't have to worry about insurance, etc. Temporaries are considered as having jobs but there is no job security, the pay is low, and usually there is no insurance or benefits of...
