Last week, a bombshell report released by the non-partisan CBO indicates that Obamacare will kill roughly 2 million full-time jobs by the year 2017. Only a pure-bred liberal like Chuck Schumer could look at that scenario and spin it into a statement that those people who will be losing their jobs will now have “freedom to do things that they couldn’t do.”
Via CNS News:
Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) suggested on Sunday that freedom means not working if you don’t want to.
Asked about a Congressional Budget Office report that said several million Americans will drop out of the workforce in coming years to take advantage of Obamacare subsidies, Schumer gave his own interpretation of that report:

“Bottom line is very simple,” he told NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “What CBO said is that many American workers would have freedom. Now that’s a good word, freedom to do things that they couldn’t do.
Obamacare has freed you from having to work and earn a living, to instead live off of what the government gives you … for free of course. And by free, Schumer means what those hardworking taxpayers provide to the non-working leeches of society, by force.

The CBO also indicated that low-wage workers would have less incentive to work due to Obamacare, saying it would make “work less attractive.”
As Newt Gingrich said during the 2012 primaries – welfare checks or paychecks? Earn your income, or get paid to stay at home.
You voted for the welfare state America, and now you’re getting it.
