Back in 2009/2010 when conservatives were pointing out the myriad problems with ObamaCare, one of the things we were assured would never happen would be that doctors would stop practicing or would move to fields which were less expensive to practice with similar repayments. You know, like rational people. "That's just crazy talk."
Well, someone should tell the Windber Medical Center in Southwestern Pennsylvania that, because apparently they didn't get the memo. As of March 31 they will stop delivering babies due to ObamaCare.
The Windber Medical Center will stop delivering babies after March 31 because its obstetricians are either leaving or refocusing their practices, and because hospital officials believe they can't afford it based on projected reimbursements under looming federal health care reforms.
I'm surirpised by this. Not that it is happening, but that this is the first one I've heard about. I'm sure there will be more, and I would not be surprised to find out this isn't actually the first, just the first one to get national attention of any sort. The fact is that ObamaCare is cripiling doctors and hospitals. "If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor," was a lie. The SCOAMT knew, or should have known, that doctors would leave the feild in droves. Which will be just another arrow in the Trannie's quiver when they're ready to fully Nationalize healthcare.
And it is coming. All tyrannical regimes do two things first. They nationalize healthcare, making you dependent upon the state for your health. They disarm the populace, making you easier to control and incidentally dependent upon the state for your protection. We're seeing a push to disarm the populace in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting. ObamaCare is the vehicle by which the Trannies will nationalize health care.
Unfortunately, it may be too late to do anything about that. So let it burn.
