John McCain has largely built his entire campaign, at least from his television ads, around GOP opposition to the Affordable Care Act aka “ObamaCare.” In his ads, McCain claims that ObamaCare has “devastated” Arizona.
What exactly does he mean by “devastated”? I have been unable to find a single report or fact check from the fawning Arizona McMedia into McCain’s claim. Has any reporter even asked him to explain? Or are they all too busy kissing his wrinkled old ass?
Arizona’s job growth has been lackluster since the Bush Great Recession, but has had a slight uptick in the past couple of years. Do you know why that is?
It is due largely to growth in the health services field as a result of Obamacare. IN December. the Phoenix Business Journal reported, Which Arizona business sectors will do the most hiring in 2016:
In Arizona, the state’s Department of Administration projected that 63,100 jobs will be created in 2016. That seems a bit of a conservative projection, however, since through November 2015, the state had added 65,000. The DOA had projected only 56,000 new jobs in all of 2015.
By the end of next year, DOA expects the number of health care and services workers will increase by nearly 30,000 over the employment base in 2014.
