CBO did not say ACA will kill 800,000 jobs

Was going to do a post on this, but Jon Chait did it. They say that access to health insurance will reduce job lock (those working mainly or only because of the need for health insurance) and some folks after the ACA will decide to work less. For example, a parent might decide to stay home with their kids instead of work since they could obtain health insurance without a job after the ACA.

I won't even get into the irony of Republicans touting minor points out of the CBO's analyses given how they have spent the past few months trying to discredit them.
