CBO: Obamacare will cause some to work less
San Diego Union-Tribune

Incentives brought about by Obamacare will cause the equivalent of 2.3 million workers to cut back their hours or leave their jobs by 2021, according to an estimate Tuesday by the Congressional Budget Office.

The Affordable Care Act pays subsidies to individuals and families based on how much money they make, and the nonpartisan budget agency estimated that some people will have less reason to work long hours if increasing income results in the loss, or reduction of government subsidies.
