Did Obamacare slow private-sector recovery?

Slide 7 | Obamacare in Pictures

Between the recession’s low point in January 2009 and April 2010, net private-sector job growth improved at a rate of 66,800 jobs per month. After Obama signed his health care legislation into law at the end of March 2010, the improvement stalled. Over the next 29 months, private-sector job growth improved at a rate of just 300 jobs per month.
