"Private-sector job creation initially recovered from the recession at a normal rate, leading to predictions last year of a “Recovery Summer.” Since April 2010, however, net private-sector job creation has stalled. Within two months of the passage of Obamacare, the job market stopped improving. This suggests that businesses are not exaggerating when they tell pollsters that the new health care law is holding back hiring. The law significantly raises business costs and creates considerable uncertainty about the future."
Economic Recovery Stalled After Obamacare Passed | The Heritage Foundation, July 19, 2011
Hiring has never recovered yet since Obamacare was passed. And if all the discouraged workers who have given up looking for a job returned to the workforce, the unemployment rate would be around 11%.
Would it not be ironic if Obamacare, Obama's proclaimed signature achievement, was ruled unconstitutional releasing the pent up demand of businesses to hire, creating a hiring frenzy by employers, especially small businesses, who have been doing everything possible to avoid hiring more workers whose costs cannot be calculated. This then causes a substantial drop in unemployment, thousands of discouraged workers return to seeking employment, an economic upturn or maybe even a mini-boom, rising consumer sentiment, people feeling good about how things are going, all leading to Obama's reelection in November? And all of this could happen because Obamacare, his signature achievement, is declared unconstitutional.
