The Republicans just got a big gift from the Congressional Budget Office: It’s going to be a lot easier for them to call Obamacare a “job killer.”

That’s because the budget office’s new economic report says the health care law will cause Americans to work fewer hours – enough to be the equivalent of 2 million fewer jobs in 2017.

That’s nearly three times as many as the budget office had predicted before, and it’s supposed to rise in later years to the equivalent of 2.5 million jobs in 2024.
