Obamacare Unemployment: It’s Exciting!

A special election is going on in Florida’s district 13. Democrat Alex Sink is favored to flip the district, which is currently Republican. She was asked in an interview to comment on the CBO’s projection that Obamacare will result in a loss of employment equivalent to two million full-time jobs or more. In reply, she termed this “an exciting prospect.” The NRCC is promoting this video clip:

Will it help? I hope so. But it would help even more if it were generally known that the CBO based that projection in part on falling wages due to Obamacare. It is hard to see how Ms. Sink or anyone else could term declining wages, for those who are already at the lower end of the income spectrum, “an exciting prospect.”
