The release continued: "In addition to being just plain wrong on the facts of the CBO report, the GOP seems to have forgotten that ending 'job-lock' has been an avowed Republican goal for years – even a highlight in the Republican Sen. John McCain’s 2008 presidential race."
The concept is not a new one and has been cited by Democrats in the context of Obamacare before. But it came to light this week following the release of the CBO report.
Democrats have cried foul over the GOP's portrayal of the report. Republicans have said the report shows how Obamacare will kill 2 million jobs by 2021, but the report is far more nuanced than that, and the job losses are in large part due to people no longer needing work in order to acquire health insurance.
That is just one of the reasons cited in the report for the decline in jobs, though.
