The formally profitable non-profit large hospital system my wife works for is already threatening furloughs due to Obamacare. They whacked all of their interns.
Doctors aren’t working anymore than they have to since it doesn’t pay.
Free healthcare is about to get really expensive and crappy.
My 3 year old Grandson got a taste of Obamacare this past weekend. He was at the playground, fell forward and hit his forehead on a metal part of the playground equipment. immediately a huge bruise with a deep black and blue dent in his forehead.
Immediately went to the Emergency Care Center. They asked who his primary physician was and to call him. We called him. He was on vacation with no backup. Asked the nurses to at least look at him. No. We can’t help you.
Left, went to Children’s Hospital (annex) - same response. We can’t touch him.
Finally drove downtown and he was eventually seen. 5 hours later.
It’s a nightmare.
