Are we Creating more Jobs?

Opponents of the Health Reform want us to believe that the nation will go bankrupt if the Bill takes effect.

What about thinking that the Reform will bring more jobs to our nation.

  • Uhhh, there will be 160 new commissions, offices and government entities made when all is said and done
    That includes 17,000 new IRS agents to keep track of you.
    Don't forget these are government jobs not private jobs. These employees are paid for with your tax dollars.
    Sooo, really, no new jobs. There will be a net loss of jobs in the end.

  • Employers will let people go and hire less to reduce their costs. Companies that can't afford the extra taxes and requirements will go under and all of their employees will be out of work. People will work less to drop to a lower tax bracket, generating less income, therefore spending less, therefore reducing income of the businesses they frequent. In other words, they will work less and quit going to Starbucks. Less employees for Starbucks. The IRS agents that will be hired will not be enough to offset the new job losses this plan will create, let alone the millions who are already out of work.

  • How?  medical establishments and insurance companies will have to cut costs where ever they can to stop hemorrhaging money. So they will try to get the most work done with the least amount of workers that they have to. One of our hospitals recently said they are cutting anesthesiologists in surgery, now a nurse will do it. Is that the kind of health care you want?

  • Jobs are going to be lost, not created, with this bill. Many doctors have come forward and said that they will stop taking Medicare and Medicaid patients if this bill passes. If they are forced to take them, they will stop practicing medicine.

  • How are we creating new jobs with this reform? lol. That's a silly notion.

    Now, there are plenty of OTHER ways we COULD create more jobs...but they aren't being considered as of yet.

  • Anon 32-I work in HC and it's been bare bones staffing for a long time- nothing new. Further, Nurse anesthetists have been safely practicing in this country for many years. Way to be an alarmist.

  • Assuming it becomes law, the Congressional Budget Office expects the IRS will need roughly $10 billion over the next 10 years and nearly 17,000 new employees to meet its new responsibilities under health reform.

    Government jobs don't stimulate the economy, they increase the deficit or increase taxes (or both). They do not have the same significance as private sector jobs because they don't produce anything - they are a net loss on the economy.
