ObamaCare Will Put Job Creation on Life Support
We've told you how ObamaCare is bad for doctors and their patients.
We've told you how ObamaCare is bad for our already exploding national debt.
We've told you how ObamaCare is bad for liberty, freedom and the right to make your own decisions about your medical care.
But wait! It gets worse!
In the pages of the Washington Post, the indelible George Will recounts the remarkable story of Carl Karcher. What started with Carl's purchase of a $326 hot dog cart has grown into a much larger enterprise — CKE Restaurants. But you probably know them better by their flagship fast food establishments: Carl's Jr. and Hardees.
CKE, with more than 3,200 restaurants (Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s), has created 70,000 jobs, 21,000 directly and 49,000 with franchisees. The growth of those numbers will be inhibited by — among many government measures — Obamacare.
When CKE’s health-care advisers, citing Obamacare’s complexities, opacities and uncertainties, said that it would add between $7.3 million and $35.1 million to the company’s $12 million health-care costs in 2010, Puzder said: I need a number I can plan with. They guessed $18 million — twice what CKE spent last year building new restaurants. Obamacare must mean fewer restaurants.
Fewer restaurants means, of course, fewer jobs. And that's fewer jobs at a time when the economy is still in recession and unemployment remains high.
But wait! It doesn't have to be that way!
We can achieve full repeal of ObamaCare. By holding politicians accountable through The Repeal Pledge, we can help elect a Congress — and a President — who will pass and sign full and complete repeal of ObamaCare.
When your local candidate for Congress asks for your vote, ask them, "Have you signed The Repeal Pledge?"
If they have, then you'll know exactly where they stand — for liberty, for a fiscally stable country and for patients and doctors making health care decisions instead of government bureaucrats.
