Obamacare and government jobs

Zero Hedge breaks it down:

Notable Trends
  • Half of Private Payroll hiring is Healthcare (+59K) and Restaurants (+29K)
  • House flipping more important than production: Real Estate Hiring (+10K) vs Manufacturing (+1K)
Local Government Hiring: +35K: June 30th is end of fiscal year for most States: Use-it-or-lose-it budgets bump up hiring.Healthcare: At +59, this was Stronger than we modeled (+59K)
  • Healthcare surged higher as Obamacare repeal looks unlikely
  • Headline number masks generally soft payrolls

The 2.5% payroll growth was likely driven by healthcare inflation.
