Dem Keith Ellison: CBO Report Is Good News Because “Will Give More Time to Cook Dinner at Home” (Video)

This week the CBO reported that Obamacare may cut the full-time workforce by 2.5 million jobs.

Democratic politicians and the White House cheered the news saying, “Opportunity created by affordable, quality health insurance allows families in America to make a decision about how they will work, or if they will work.”

And, besides, Americans work too much anyway.
Just ask Rep. Keith Ellison:

Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN): People might be able to cook dinner rather than having to order out and get some take home. The fact is that if Americans have more choices to open up the business they’ve been wanting to start, this is a good thing. If you look at comparisons, country by country, Americans work way more than the average industrialized countries around the world. And we may want to work at our work life balance and this gives us something.

Rep. Tome Cole (R-OK): Part of the reason Americans live better than people around the world, because they do want balance.

Rep. Keith Ellison: What about Germany? What about Denmark? What about… The fact is we need a better work-life balance. Ask a working mother if she could use a few more hours in a day.
