Re "Obamacare waging a war on jobs" (Viewpoints, Feb. 14):

Charles Krauthammer writes that the Affordable Care Act will result in 2 million people leaving their jobs. What will businesses do? They will have to hire someone to fill those vacancies. Where will they find so many people? How about the millions of people unemployed?

So instead of complaining about 2 million people leaving the workforce, how about being happy that 2 million unemployed will now have an opportunity to join the workforce?

Of course, this approach would destroy the myth that Obamacare is costing jobs and put an end to that talking point. And we should never let facts get in the way of a popular talking point.
