NRSC - Shaheen's ObamaCare Will Result in 2 Million Fewer Workers

More Consequences of Jeanne Shaheen's Deciding Vote

Yesterday, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) issued a report on the devastating impact ObamaCare will have on the economy. Despite repeated claims and promises by Democrat Jeanne Shaheen, the CBO found that ObamaCare will result in 2 million fewer workers over the next decade.


  • "CBO’s updated estimate of the decrease in hours worked translates to a reduction in full-time-equivalent employment of about 2.0 million in 2017, rising to about 2.5 million in 2024, compared with what would have occurred in the absence of the ACA.” (“The Budget And Economic Outlook: 2014 To 2024,” Congressional Budget Office, Page 127, 2/4/14)


  • Shaheen Said Passing ObamaCare Was A “Historic Step Forward.” SHAHEEN: “Today, our nation took a historic step forward in a quest that has spanned generations - to provide better quality and more cost effective health care to all Americans.” (Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, “Shaheen Statement On Passage Of The Senate Health Care Reform Bill,” Press Release, 12/24/09)


"Jeanne Shaheen was the deciding vote for ObamaCare and that vote has had dire consequences for workers, families, and small businesses in New Hampshire," said NRSC Press Secretary Brook Hougesen.  "So many of the promises Jeanne Shaheen repeatedly made about ObamaCare have turned out to be false, and unfortunately middle-class Granite Staters continue to pay the price."
