Would Overturning 'Obamacare' Create More Jobs?


"We can't afford the job-killing policies in Obamacare," Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said and tweeted recently. Repealing President Obama's controversial health care reform on the grounds that it hurts the economy is one of Romney's signature messages.

It's a popular goal, too, as poll after poll shows a majority of Americans is opposed to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, according to RealClearPolitics. Romney and Republicans in Congress have also made it plain that they will try to repeal the 2010 law if the Supreme Court doesn't overturn it before the election. The court's ruling on the constitutionality of the ACA is expected any day.
