"Obamacare is killing jobs!"
What? The jobs report looks good. Okay, let’s go back to the other script.
"The president’s health care law continues to wreak havoc on … our economy."

"Today’s report includes positive signs that should discourage calls for more emergency government ‘stimulus.’"

Here’s the fundamental problem for Speaker Boehner and the Republicans. They keep saying their top priority is “private-sector job growth,” but if that were really true, they should be celebrating both the stimulus and Obamacare.
Within one year of the stimulus, the American economy went from losing nearly 800,000 private-sector jobs a month to gaining jobs again. And since Obamacare was signed into law, the economy has created private-sector jobs every single month, for a total of nearly 8 million private-sector jobs created to date.
