Health Reform: Good for the Economy and Good for Jobs, White House Office of Public Engagement (2011)

This is a short fact sheet on health care reform and employment, circulated by the White House Office of Public Engagement in response to the 2011 Congressional bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act of 2010. This repeal effort is in part based on the rationale that the reform is, and has been, bad for jobs creation.  The fact sheet shows that data from the Congressional Budget Office strongly indicate that health care reform has reduced government health care costs while having no negative impact on jobs.
