1. NONE.

Remember the dripping piece of shit is a job creator.

2. Economic Policy Institute projects 1.8 million.

But that was the first rendition of the bill that was less cruel and sadistic than the current version, so the number is probably more.

3. A ridculous number.

Maybe you can tell us where "somewhere" is.

7. Well if you believe that, fine.

I looked at the link and they give no methodology for their numbers. All they say is the source is the "author". Also it is not a "loss" of jobs it is a projected slowing of job growth -- which is a very murky number at best. I would much rather see an analysis from a neutral organization instead of an organization which is opposed to the bill.

6. Just the $35B/yr. for the investment and higher earner wage taxes

Was 400,000 nurses equivalent per year. This money exists no other place. Nursing schools (including my daughter's) have been ramping up graduation rates. Someone needs to turn off the spigot. Also those comments about not majoring in History but major in Nursing instead - well that plan did not work either.

The only argument that could be made is that there is an unreasonable amount of healthcare consumption. That seems to be ridiculous on its race. Go to any nursing home or hospital floor and see the inadequate staffing.

10. Several hospitals have closed in TN already...

thanks to not expanding medicaid.

I'd say the industry will take a a large hit if this isn't stopped.

11. I'd be surprised if many were lost -- more likely, fewer would be created.

Covering fewer people might actually give employers a little breathing room to find the people they need to manage the double whammy of treating an aging population plus boomers starting to retire.
