A recent study from professors from Columbia University, Northwestern University and the University of Chicago found that Obamacare could allow 1 million people to quit their jobs, since they would be able to obtain health insurance from the government. That would increase government spending and slow economic growth in the long term.

This study confirms Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s promise to America that “if you want to be creative and be a musician or whatever, you can leave your work, focus on your talent, your skill, your passion, your aspirations because you will have healthcare.”

The need for healthcare has locked people into employment for many years, and it has also kept at least some families intact.

An older study by The Kaiser Family Foundation found that about 7 percent of the adults surveyed admitted that someone in their home had married to get health insurance. This would no longer be necessary.

There are many valid reasons why a family should not remain together, but state-provided healthcare will now make the decision to break up easier for some. It is another way that the Obama campaign’s fictional "Julia" is coming to life.

In a short-lived ad, the campaign showed that Julia was able to turn to the government for help at every stage of her life and was free from worries about family because the government had taken care of all that for her.

Obamacare is shifting responsibility from the family to the government. Some welcome the shift as a safety net, but it is also a step toward weakening the family values that drive economic growth.
