How Universal Health Care Will REALLY Affect For the Poor

The State is requiring the Boston Medical Center to operate at a loss which could result in the hospital treating the poor inadequately.  Is this the State forcing the hospital into bankruptcy, closing, and thus resulting in hurting the poor-the opposite effect that unversal health care was intended to have.  This is the model that the President touted and with Obamacare, wanted to mimick closely. So, does this mean that hospitals all across America are going to be forced to run in the red, go bankrupt, close their doors, and ultimately hurt the poor and the rest of American citizens?  Quinn's Law from Jim Quinn of Quinn & Rose in the Morning states that liberalism always produces the exact opposite of its stated intent.

From the Boston Globe:
"Boston Medical Center filed suit yesterday against the state, accusing officials of illegally cutting payments made to the hospital for treating thousands of poor patients, a decision executives said could financially unravel the urban hospital’s key services."

WHAT? Don't tell me Obama also wants hospitals to now be GOVERNMENT OWNED AND RUN~!! Sounds like it..
God help us all.

It sure sounds like it. Yes, God help us all. Hopefully, God will help us repeal this nightmare called Obamacare.

funny, the Massachusetts reforms are overwhelmingly popular among Massachusetts voters. Only 11% of Massachusetts residents want to repeal them.

Teresa said...

Can you point me to a recent poll for that percentage? Something must change so that Massachusetts is not froced into bankruptcy due to universal health care.

Well, we saw it coming. BTW, Glad someone else out there is quoting Quinn and Rose.

Popular support for Governor Romney's reforms was polled last September:

The findins were largely reaffirmed after the Scott Brown election: 68% of Mass residents support the Romney reforms:

"59 percent of those surveyed said they favored the state’s multimillion-dollar insurance initiative, down from 69 percent a year ago."

"A national survey by Kaiser released this month found that Massachusetts has the most expensive family health insurance premiums in the country, averaging $13,788 in 2008."

The second link had no survey referring to health care, but it did in fact show a decline in the persentage of people who of the thinking that government should do more for them.

This shows a decline and supports that people want less govenment interference in their lives. Plus. the data shows a 10% decline in people who support MA univeral health care since "universal health care" became a reality.

I have always enjoyed listening to Quinn & Rose. That's cool, that you listen to them, also.
