Obamacare Crushing Georgia’s Healthcare

Georgia has suffered heavily under the increased burdens posed by Obamacare.

Insurance rates have exploded, deductible costs have increased exponentially and healthcare facilities have shut down.

And things are only getting worse.

The fourth Georgia hospital in two years is closing its doors due to severe financial difficulties caused by Obamacare’s payment cuts for emergency services.

The federal government has historically made payments to hospitals to cover the cost of uninsured patients seeking free medical care in emergency rooms, as federal law mandates that hospitals must care for all patients regardless of their ability to pay.

Because the Affordable Care Act’s authors believed they’d forced all states to implement the Medicaid expansion, Obamacare vastly cut hospital payments, the Associated Press reports.

Obamacare has done nothing but bad things to American healthcare, and at some point even liberals will have to admit that the status quo before Obamacare was better than what we have now.

It’s time to reform healthcare by REPEALING Obamacare.

America wants our healthcare back.
