The Congressional Budget Office estimates that Obamacare will reduce the total hours worked by 1.5-2% from 2017-2024. However, this will be "almost entirely because workers will choose to supply less labor [rather than from a] drop in business' demand." ACA will stimulate the economy, as low-income households have more disposable-income, and will induce some employers to hire more.
