Shock: Hapless Hack Jay Carney Distances White House From Previous Claim That ObamaCare Was a Jobs Bill

300,000 jobs, Nancy Pelosi said. Within months, she said.

And now...

When Obama faced criticism for focusing on health care rather than economic policy in the first year of his presidency, the president responded by portraying Obamacare, to some degree, as a jobs bill. "Rising health care costs are a major driver of our long-term deficits, and getting them under control is crucial if we want to grow the economy, create jobs and compete in the world economy," the White House website says.

In fact, Obama's economic advisers went to great lengths to argue for health care reform as an economic spur. "Health care reform is incredibly important not just for the American people but for the American economy," Christina Romer, Obama's chairwoman of the Council of Economic Advisers, said during the health care debate. "Good health care reform is essentially good economic policy," she added.

And now, when asked why Obama doesn't talk about ObamaCare anymore, Jay Carney says he prefers to discuss the economy.

But wait-- ObamaCare was supposed to be a huge boon to the economy!

So let's hear it, Obama, you silly shit. Talk up ObamaCare's wonderful effects for the economy some more.

Still Unpopular: Repeal is favored, per Rasmussen, 56-39.

Among independents, it's virtually identical, but actually meaninglessly higher: 57-39.

I Regret, If Anyone Was Offended...

...that it was not good-paying jobs, but something else entirely, that was created in your mouth.
