Modest proposal: When calculating unemployment, we should factor in those who have dropped out of the workforce, and then change the name to the “Chuck Schumer Freedom Rate.”

From CNS News:

Asked about a Congressional Budget Office report that said several million Americans will drop out of the workforce in coming years to take advantage of Obamacare subsidies, Schumer gave his own interpretation of that report:

“Bottom line is very simple,” he told NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “What CBO said is that many American workers would have freedom. Now that’s a good word, freedom to do things that they couldn’t do.

“The single mom who’s raising three kids, has to keep a job because of health care, can now spend some time raising those kids. That’s a family value. The student, 27 years old, wants to finish school quickly so he can get a great job, can’t because he needs health care, is now free.”

Schumer didn’t mention even more freedom workers will enjoy because of Obamacare: In the future, those remaining in the work force will be increasingly free from compensation for their efforts:
