(Daily Caller) A new study suggests that nearly 1 million people could be moved from work to welfare by Obamacare.

The study by professors from Columbia University, Northwestern University and the University of Chicago has found that the Affordable Care Act may cause a significant number of people to quit the jobs they use to get employer-sponsored health insurance in favor of federal subsidies and welfare.
