"Job Killer." How many times have we heard the Republicans throw around that term, whenever the Democrats try to accomplish anything, and invariably without a shred of fact to back up their claims. No Democratic initiative has come in for more of this counterfactual name-calling than Obamacare. So, five years on, it is helpful, I think, to look at the reality, as shown by this chart, from an article at Forbes' website, hardly a progressive bastion:
This is just one little specimen of the Alice in Wonderland fantasy that is Conservative economics; a fantasy that has brought us two total economic collapses in the last century, and never done a damned bit of good to anyone, except as an excuse to cut rich peoples' taxes, which is all the Republican party exists for. So they will keep pushing discredited slogans and economic cant on us until we just get worn out and let them get away with their predatory behavior. We can't let that happen, unless we all want to end up living in tin shacks alongside of open sewers, so we have to fight long won battles over and over.
