Sebelius: 'No evidence' Obamacare costs jobs
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius pushed back Monday against the idea that ObamaCare will lead to job losses. "There is absolutely no evidence, and every economist will tell you this, that there is any job-loss related to the Affordable Care Act," she told reporters in Orlando, Fla., according to media reports. "Part-time physicians are actually down since 2010, not up," she added. "The number of full-time workers continues to increase. I know that's a popular myth that continues to be repeated, but it just is not accurate."
