Re: Anyone still think Obamacare is a good thing?

Since my facts have been questioned, let me give specifics:

Cleveland Clinic:

To prepare for healthcare reform, Cleveland Clinic is transforming the way  care is delivered to patients. Over the past several years, we have had an  ongoing focus on driving efficiencies, lowering costs, reducing duplication in services and enhancing quality to  make healthcare affordable to patients.Although we have made progress,  we need to further reduce costs to the organization by $330 million in  2014.  We are carefully evaluating all aspects of our system to accomplish  this. Some of the initiatives include offering early retirement  to 3,000 eligible employees, reducing operational costs, stricter review of  filling vacant positions, and lastly workforce reductions."

UPS told 15,000 workers that their spouses would no longer be offered insurance as a result of Obamacare.   http://www.nbcnews.com/health/ups-takes-spouses-insurance-blames-obamacare-6C10975695

 

Many businesses have been forced to cut hours because of it:
