The last few recoveries have been "jobless" and we didn't have Obamacare dragging on the economy. The problem is not a specific government program that is causing lower economic activity but the smothering effect a growing public sector has on all private sector activity. Macroeconomists will argue about structural problems and how financial crisis cause slower recoveries but few touch on the growth of government as the root of the problem. Europe has dealt with this for a long time and still can't see the forest for the trees. Just killing Obamacare (good luck) won't fix this. Personally I don't think it's going to get fixed.
