Last winter, my daughter who was unemployed at the time, needed an outpatient surgical procedure. I took her to a Catholic hospital. After completing a series of forms and providing supporting documentation, her medical bills were slashed by 90%, under a special catholic charitable fund established for just this type of situation. God help us all!

But but but ... the USCCB SUPPORTED OBAMA in this....Yup they did!! Even though this law embodies much of what Catholics consider pure evil.

Convoluted, treacherous evil of this level is either carefully planned or supernaturally inspired.

The evil here seems to be beyond normal human limits.

Why should I be surprised when the current administration and democrat legislation punishes religious charities for helping the poor, according to our Christian beliefs, when it replaces government ‘charity.’ (and I use the word ‘charity’ here in sarcasm.)

This article needs to be shared on facebook.

Sure sounds like the plan was written with the express purpose of putting Charitable Hospitals out of business.

The Government wants control of every facet of your life. There will be Government health care or no health care at all.

Is this part of what Congress and Obortion O did NOT read?

**So, the Obama Administration forces everyone to get health coverage, but for a non-profit hospital to maintain its non-profit status, it has to treat a minimum number of those without coverage. But that pool of people will shrink dramatically, thus driving hospitals into the taxable category.**

Under existing law no hospital can turn away anyone who shows up in their ER needing care based on their ability to pay. This includes illegal immigrants. So illegal Maria shows up at the ER in labor and delivers a 4# baby who then spends 6 months in the NICU racking up $300,000 in medical costs. The hospital currently has to write this off as charitable care. It wouldn’t take very many cases like this to push the hospital over the edge of this Obamacare rule. Yet these illegals do not have insurance and presumably are not eligible for Obamacare.
