  1. Probably a lot of these jobs are insurance clerks and IT people to administer the monstrosity of Obamacare.
    Single payer would never have had such a Rube-Goldberg contraptions of administration.

    • Explain to me where the votes for Single Payer would have come from – with the GOP/Fox/corporate Reich denouncing it as outright communism and the lobbyists buying off Blue Dogs?

  2. Check and see how many of these new jobs were people who provide health CARE (nurses, doctors, allied health) and how any were bureaucratic/administrative. I bet you know the answer but check for yourself.
    As shown in The Cancer In Healthcare (, 40% of all healthcare dollars produces no health CARE. For all this job growth, it is probably 90% administrators, regulators, billers and coders, oversight officers, consultants, IT “experts,” and lawyers.
    Hello…. How are all these new jobs getting more Americans the care they need when they need it??

  3. I wonder how many of these “healthcare jobs” are of the low-paying, low-benefit, minimum wage variety.

  4. Wow, so because the guy isn’t anti-war enough for you, you have to troll the only national insurance plan that the insurance corporations are going to allow? Alternate-Universe President Kucinich would have ended up with exactly the same mess because he had no Constitutional way to stop the insurance gangsters from buying up as many Democratic congressmen as needed to stop single-payer and Public Option. That’s true of every other damn issue now.
