The Affordable Care Act was signed into law in March of 2010. Days before it became law the Republican leadership announced that Obamacare would be a "job-killing government takeover of health care." Dan Diamond, health and pharma expert from Forbes magazine, just put out this graph.

Diamond writes:

The economy looks drastically different than in March 2010 — more than 11 million jobs have been created, and the unemployment rate has been cut nearly in half.

In fact, health care jobs grew 50% more in 2014 than in 2013. There's more, but you get the point. Republicans got it wrong, big time, about Obamacare.
