Elections have consequences. Here is an inevitable consequence of electing socialists who won’t repeal ObamaCare before it becomes an entrenched entitlement:
Pregnant women in one southwestern Pennsylvania town will soon need to look elsewhere to deliver their babies, after a local hospital announced it will end the practice in March — blaming ObamaCare in part for the decision.
The Windber Medical Center will stop delivering babies after March 31 because its obstetricians are either leaving or refocusing their practices, and because hospital officials believe they can’t afford it based on projected reimbursements under looming federal health care reforms.
The ObamaCare guillotine is beginning to fall. Not that this is the only way moonbattery is destroying healthcare.
The hospital, about 60 miles southeast of Pittsburgh, is losing two obstetricians and two others are shifting their focus more to gynecology.
OB-GYNs have been dropping the OB largely because of ambulance-chasing vermin like John Edwards, whose never-ending looting spree is enabled by the execrable Democrat Party in exchange for kickbacks from extravagant lawsuits.
The hospital delivered about 200 babies each year since restarting its obstetrics program in 2005.
Officials aren’t sure how many jobs will be lost…
No worries. Those depressed about being thrown out of work by Obama’s power grab qualify for disability.
The closest obstetric facility is 10 miles away.
If 10 miles seems far when you’re having a baby in the backseat of a taxi, just wait until federal overreach decimates our healthcare system to the point that we have to travel to Mexico, the way Canadians came here to escape socialism before ObamaCare.
Fortunately, we don’t need obstetricians anyway when we have lavishly taxpayer-subsidized abortionists.
