Obamacare Stunting Wisconsin Job Growth

by Jerry Bader

Of course, the suggestion that the Affordable Care Act is holding down Badger State job growth is written off by the left as an excuse. Well, employers tell a different story. This is perfectly logical. If you don't know what your cost per employee is going to be you're not going to add employees. Especially if that cost might actually lead to fewer workers on your payroll in 2014.

It has been no secret to conservatives that most liberals lack the basic understanding of the rules of economics under which businesses operates. But it's more obvious than ever with the advent of Obamacare. It's amazing how many on the left were actually stunned to learn that you really can't get more for less. This is leaving tremendous sticker shock for those who are actually paying more for less.
