Working for others

The Congressional Budget Office released a report Feb. 4 predicting that Obamacare would cause millions of workers to quit their jobs because they could now get subsidized health care without being employed.

Evidently, the White House thinks working to fulfill your responsibilities is a bad thing, as they lauded the prediction as evidence that people will “no longer be trapped in a job.” So how would they term those people working to fulfill their own responsibilities as well as subsidizing others not working to fulfill theirs?
