Holtz-Eakin: Obamacare Is Bad Economic Policy

Douglas Holtz-Eakin, president of the American Action Forum, issued the following statement regarding the CBO’s report on the repeal of the Affordable Care Act:

“CBO's dynamic score confirms the obvious: Obamacare is bad economic policy. It harms labor supply and incomes, impedes accumulation of private capital and slows overall growth. It is hard to identify another single act that would raise economic growth over the next decade as much as repealing the ACA.”
