Wonder what you will find if you frisked emergency rooms after Obama-Care is in full effect?
Answer: A lot of sick patients crammed into already busy emergency rooms.
The Hill reports:
The new healthcare law will pack 32 million newly insured people into emergency rooms already crammed beyond capacity, according to experts on healthcare facilities.
A chief aim of the new healthcare law was to take the pressure off emergency rooms by mandating that people either have insurance coverage. The idea was that if people have insurance, they will go to a doctor rather than putting off care until they faced an emergency.
All right! Who is excited for longer lines? …What? That doesn’t sound fun? Unfortunately, most of America thought it didn’t sound like a good idea either, but President Obama and his loyal Democratic pals in Washington D.C. shoved it down ours throats anyway.
The counter-argument to what I stated above: Since more individuals are able to obtain health-care insurance, they will decide to go see an actual doctor rather than migrate to hospital emergency rooms when they are ill. Makes sense, right? Yeah it does, but there is a slight problem with it… Under Obama-Care, the number of doctors will decline!
Answer me this: Do you really expect doctors to take in more patients that are covered by the government? Might I remind you that approximately 28% of doctors no longer take new Medicare patients and 50% of doctors don’t take new Medicaid patients. Don’t worry though, this pattern will likely decrease under Obama-Care…
Let the health-care rationing begin…
