How Many Jobs Does Obamacare Kill?

Nationwide, we estimate the ACA-inspired practice of keeping payrolls below 50 has cost roughly 250,000 jobs. This does not count jobs lost when businesses close (we didn’t survey closed businesses) or shrink because of other ACA incentives.

I agree.

 As the author points out in the article, his sample is only in businesses keeping payrolls below 50. He has no statistics for all the businesses that closed their doors.

Yep, half the workforce was cut to part time, so yeah, the article misses the mark by just a mere 100 million jobs. :biggrin:
