As Gruber-Gate continues and as Obamacare heads back to the Supreme Court over the validity of federal subsidies in states that do not use federal healthcare exchanges, the legislation continues to take an extremely negative toll on the nation's healthcare system and hospitals.

In a piece published yesterday, USA Today writers Jayne O'Donnell and Laura Ungar detail the devastating effect the Affordable Care Act is having on rural hospitals.

Since the beginning of 2010, 43 rural hospitals — with a total of more than 1,500 beds — have closed, according to data from the North Carolina Rural Health Research Program. The pace of closures has quickened: from 3 in 2010 to 13 in 2013, and 12 already this year. Georgia alone has lost five rural hospitals since 2012, and at least six more are teetering on the brink of collapse. Each of the state's closed hospitals served about 10,000 people — a lot for remaining area hospitals to absorb.

The Affordable Care Act was designed to improve access to health care for all Americans and will give them another chance at getting health insurance during open enrollment starting this Saturday. But critics say the ACA is also accelerating the demise of rural outposts that cater to many of society's most vulnerable. These hospitals treat some of the sickest and poorest patients — those least aware of how to stay healthy. Hospital officials contend that the law's penalties for having to re-admit patients soon after they're released are impossible to avoid and create a crushing burden.

This news comes on top of other negative factors we've already seen as a result of Obamacare: limited healthcare choices and networks, loss of innovation in the medical device industry due to over taxation, massive loss of insurance coverage, and 6-out-of-10 doctors retiring early.

Despite these developments, facts and consequences, liberal Democrats across the country, including President Obama, continue to argue Obamacare is working.

Meanwhile, the administration downgraded Obamacare enrollment expectations last week as open enrollment gets set to begin tomorrow. Original estimates for new enrollees were at 13 million and have been downgraded to 9 million.

Everything from Obama is a lie.

Little different but exact paraelle to Socializuim : Besides - Doc's are NOT getting PAID !
The private clinc's -doctor owned and small investment hospital's are vanishing or they are grouping into very specialized area's. Ortho - site ; Cardio site, Dialysis site ect. Endless

Then defeat the VA for the serving or retire Military and depend on countless benevolence free will organization's to pick up what is being intentionally dropped. NEW of the BIG Heart's for our SERVING.

Screwing over the Military as a form of defeat like removing the Ministry.

Bottom line THEY DO NOT get paid. Why a Coder ; for charges or the Gal at the INS desk is a WHEEL !!

Parallel that was smelled out LONG ago :

The elimination of the Small Private Community BANK! They are GONE !

They where ALway's sound ! You knew the banker and he KNEW YOU !!!! The community farm bank ect. Few can even comprehend what a COUNTER check was - Every small business had them. Or Even what a LINE of CREDIT WAS ! Make the call -- Is He good ? Darn right he is good.

The handshake :

I actually pulled that one in a Auto Dealer in MN on a special order from Corporate IZZUE about 10 year's ago. It was Hilarious !!!! Site un seen - CRAZY TIME

What is a Credit Score ?? OR MORE LIKE ?? What happen to CREDIT

If you check behind the curtain you will find that the Obamas have stock in Heli ambulance companies. That's how this crap works!

Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about!

I've YET to meet one person who's premiums did not go up by 25-50% with MUCH larger deductibles and out of pocket.
I've talked to people that are trying to get a plan they like that doesn't adhere to Obamacare and just pay the penalty on top of it all... if that's possible. I thought any policy not meeting Ocare requirements was now illegal. This whole thing is going to blow up and unravel rather quickly in the first few months of next year.

Everyone is going to try and cheat.

They will be left with no choice.

Once this thing is fully in place, it will chew up our economy like no other government program in our history and illegals will flood over our borders looking for more free sh#t making things worse as each month goes by.

Lets get this straight. Poor people that could not afford insurance to begin with are now going to have to pay a tax for insurance they can not afford. That really helps out poor people now doesn't it.

That is correct.

If they do not sign up for free ObummerCare (medicaid), they will get fined with extra taxes on filing day.

Each year they don't sign up, the fine (tax) goes up.

It is a huge lie. It was never about health care and everything to do with control. Even after the election Bummer is full steam ahead with his agenda and the media is in lock step with him. Boys and Girls we are in a world of hurt in the coming yrs ahead.

The gap between the rich and the poor is getting greater.

The Democrat polices are driving us into the 3rd world.
