White House press secretary Jay Carney on Tuesday dismissed reports that some employers were hiring more part-time employees because of the president's signature healthcare law.
"The data reflects that there is not support for the proposition that businesses are not hiring full-time employees because of the Affordable Care Act," Carney told reporters.
Despite the administration's controversial decision to delay forcing companies to join Obamacare for a year, three-quarters of small businesses are still making plans to duck the costly law by firing workers, reducing hours of full-time staff, or shift many to part-time, according to a sobering survey released by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
So, who you gonna believe? The brave, noble press secretary or those sumbag capitalist pigs?
