Drugmaker Eli Lilly — which lobbied for and profits from Obama’s health-care law — is sponsoring a forum by National Journal on how ObamaCare could create health jobs. Michael Cannon at the Cato Institute has a great take here.
Among the various conflicts of interest he presents, Cannon asks why health-care job creation is a good thing:
one of our biggest health care problems is that there are too many health care jobs. The Dartmouth Institute’s Elliot Fisher has quipped, “In theory, we could send a third of the U.S. health care workforce to Africa and improve the health of both continents.” ObamaCare will just make this country’s health care sector even more bloated and inefficient.
