    I dont recall BO saying it would cost jobs ?

    of course we all knew it would. in more ways than one.

    and before you start crying greedy bastards, this is a non-profit system.

    oh my



    Merry Christmas to them from Barackaclaus

    Maybe Rush will make "The Grinch stole Christmas" Obama parody

    The same thing happened down here in San Diego. Kaiser is laying off 530.

    more to be seen to, fewer to see to them and demotivated to boot. not a recipe for success.

    My wife works in a large non-profit hospital. They have been cutting back their labor force steadily for some months now and not replacing those who quit or retire. The CEO took the unprecedented action of emailing all employees a few days before the election asking all to vote. There is an environment of fear with lots of stress.

    They probably see the writing on the wall. No insurance company is going to survive Obamacare. It was designed that way. The left want's Nationalized Healthcare.

    Yes, but the immediate impact of Obummercare is it is killing jobs in a down economy. We probably are already in recession and when its full impact hits in the next couple years, things will get worse. Its a job killer, costly, and will not provide more healthy care for Americans...it will provide less. But then to libs, good intentions are all that matters and consequences are meaningless.

    It kills me that a friend who is an RN was a big Obama fan. Lovely person and great nurse but not so sharp in other ways.
