ObamaCare Hurts Disabled American Jobseekers Print E-mail

ObamaCare legislation is destroying career opportunities for disabled Americans. That's because sooner or later companies will be compelled to provide healthcare insurance to employees with pre-existing conditions and that means soaring business costs.

Fox News reports that, "Most Americans with intellectual or developmental disabilities remain shut out of the workforce, despite changing attitudes and billions spent on government programs to help them. Even when they find work, it's often part time, in a dead-end job or for pay well below the minimum wage."

Meanwhile, President Barack Obama continues to enjoy extended 'Golf-cations' at luxury resorts of billionaires, the 1 percenters, while many disabled Americans struggle to find employment.

According to Fox News, "Employment is seen as crucial for improving the quality of life for people with these disabilities and considered a benchmark for measuring the success of special education programs. Yet the jobs picture is as bleak now it was more than a decade ago."

The unemployment rate for disabled Americans stands at 66%.
