Romneycare Costs One Hospital $100 Million
July 16, 2009
Mitt Romney created a universal health care program in Massachusetts . He is very proud of it.
The cost? One hospital is going to lose $100 million next year--a couple more years and the hospital closes down.
Why is this important? Because Obama is basing his health care plan on the Mitt Romney plan.
The bottom line goal of Obama is to take over all the hospitals in the country. He does this the Romney way--by bankrupting them. Barack did this with banks and the auto industry, why not health care?
Obama is a national socialist, someone who wants government to control the means of production--in this case, you very life. needs to end.
We need Mitt Romney to come out and publicly admit his health care plan is a failure and needs to end. "The hospital, Boston Medical Center , faces a $38 million deficit for the fiscal year ending in September, its first loss in five years. The suit says the hospital will lose more than $100 million next year because the state has lowered Medicaid reimbursement rates and stopped paying Boston Medical reasonable costs for treating other poor patients.
We filed this suit more in sorrow than in anger, said Elaine Ullian, the hospitals chief executive. We believe in health care reform to the bottom of our toes, but it was never, ever supposed to be financed on the backs of the poor, and thats what has happened in Massachusetts .
Romenycare is financed on the back of the poor. Obamacare is the same, but with a twist, a guarantee of rationed health care and little care for the elderly or those just born. It is a death sentence, not an health care program.
If Dan Quayle or Bush had done what Obama has done

I WISH I’D WRITTEN THIS BUT UNFORTUNATELY I DID NOT.
IT WAS POSTED ON A BASEBALL BLOG (ok don’t ask what I was doing on a baseball blog J)
ONE OF THE POSTERS WAS PRAISING B.O. WITH APPROVAL OF HIS BRILLIANCE (ooh I just got sick a little) AND BASHING BUSH AT EVERY TURN
THIS FINE BASEBALL BLOGGER REPLIED WITH THE FOLLOW BIT OF GENIUS…..
If George W. Bush had made a joke at the expense of the Special Olympics, would you have approved?
If George W. Bush had given Gordon Brown a set of inexpensive and incorrectly formatted DVDs, when Gordon Brown had given him a thoughtful and historically significant gift, would you have approved?
If George W. Bush had given the Queen of England an iPod containing videos of his speeches, would you have thought this embarrassingly narcissistic and tacky?
If George W. Bush had bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia, would you have approved?
If George W. Bush had visited Austria and made reference to the non-existent "Austrian language," would you have brushed it off as a minor slip?
If George W. Bush had filled his cabinet and circle of advisers with people who cannot seem to keep current on their income taxes, would you have approved?
If George W. Bush had been so Spanish illiterate as to refer to “Cinco de Cuatro” in front of the Mexican ambassador when it was the fourth of May (Cuatro de Mayo), and continued to flub it when he tried again, would you have winced in embarrassment?
If George W. Bush had mis-spelled the word advice would you have hammered him for it for 20 years like Dan Quayle and 'potatoe' as “proof” of what a dunce he is?
If George W. Bush had burned 9,000 gallons of jet fuel to go plant a single tree on “Earth Day”, would you have concluded he’s a hypocrite?
If George W. Bush’s administration had okayed Air Force One flying low over millions of people, followed by a jet fighter, in downtown Manhattan causing widespread panic, would you have wondered whether they actually “get” what happened on 9-11?
If George W. Bush had been the first President to need a teleprompter installed to be able to get through a press conference, would you have laughed and said this is more proof of how inept he is on his own and is really controlled by smarter men behind the scenes?
If George W. Bush had failed to send relief aid to flood victims throughout the Midwest, with more people killed or made homeless than in New Orleans , would you want it made into a major ongoing political issue with claims of racism and incompetence?
If George W. Bush had ordered the firing of the CEO of a major corporation, even though he had no constitutional authority to do so, would you have approved?
If George W. Bush had proposed to double the national debt, which had taken more than two centuries to accumulate, in one year, would you have approved?
If George W. Bush had then proposed to double the debt again 10 times within years, would you have approved?
If George W. Bush had reduced your retirement plan’s holdings of GM stock by 90% and given the unions a majority stake in GM, would you have approved?
If George W. Bush had spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to take Laura Bush to a play in NYC, would you have approved?
So, tell me again, what is it about Obama that makes him so brilliant and impressive? Can't think of anything? Don't worry. He's done all this in 5 months -- so you'll have three years and seven months to come up with an answer.
