    (WASHINGTON, D.C.) - U.S. Senator Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), Ranking Member of the Senate Finance Committee, issued the following statement after the Congressional Budget Office’s (CBO) Budget and Economic Outlook found that the President’s health care law would eliminate 2.3 million American jobs in 2021 – 1.5 million more than the previous estimate of 800,000 jobs lost:

    “Today CBO delivered terrible news to the millions of Americans looking for work. Obamacare, the President's signature domestic policy achievement, will lead to more than 2 million fewer jobs and hurt much-needed economic growth. A direct threat to the long-term health and prosperity of our nation, this law must be repealed. It's impact and consequences are too great. It’s time this Administration start working with Congress to advance initiatives that will actually spur job growth in our nation. We can start by implementing shovel-ready projects like the Keystone XL Pipeline and enacting job-creating Trade Promotion Authority legislation.”
