Obama's Small Business Chief Has Not Heard One Case of Obamacare Hurting Small Business

Karen Mills, President Obama's Small Business Administration chief, claimed this morning on MSNBC that she has not heard one case of Obamacare hurting small business:

"You know, I travel all around the country, every week I go to a different part of the country. I'm with small businesses. And I'm not hearing that," Mills said in response to a question about how she would explain employers cutting work hours for employees because of Obamacare regulations.

"You've never heard that?" host Joe Scarborough responded. "You need to talk to your staff and tell them to get you out of the bubble, because we are hearing that all the time."

Mills continue, "We are out there every single day--"

And then Scarborough, still surprised, interrupted to ask again, "Have you never heard that before?"
