Obamacare May Cost Kentucky over 33,000 Jobs


Posted by Hayley Robinson on Wednesday, February 5th, 2014, 4:19 PM PERMALINK


Earlier this week, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) released a report which shows that Obamacare may cost the economy the equivalent of 2.5 million jobs by 2024. That is a lot of lost income and economic growth for the nation. Today, ATR released analysis of the CBO report and Bureau of Labor Statistics data that breaks down the impact by state.

Kentucky, home to one of top 2014 battleground senate races, may lose 33,497 jobs over the next decade thanks to Obamacare. It will certainly be interesting to see Alison Lundergan Grimes explain where she stands on Obamacare, as it will result in the destruction of tens of thousands of jobs across Kentucky.

It will also make for quite the contrast with her Republican opponent, Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell. Standing in stark contrast, McConnell not only voted against Obamacare, as has lead the Republican fight to repeal this legislative monstrosity, which imposes 20 new or higher taxes on Kentucky residents.

The people of Kentucky deserve to know where Grimes stands on Obamacare.
