Shocking news: Obamacare still degrading Emergency Room Care.

(Before It's News)

Spoiler warning: this is, of course, not even remotely shocking. “Emergency-room visits continued to climb in the second year of the Affordable Care Act, contradicting the law’s supporters who had predicted a decline in traffic as more people gained access to doctors and other health-care providers.”  It was, in fact, not shocking last year, either. As I noted back then, increased access to insurance does not mean the same as increased access to medical care. Dumping people on Medicaid because the federal government – specifically, the Democrats that used to run the legislative branch / still running the executive branch of the federal government – has no idea as to how to create an inexpensive national healthcare system inevitably leads to those people doing what they can with what they have. Whether or not it strains the system:

Nicholas Vasquez, a medical director for an emergency department in Mesa, Ariz., said volume rose 5% in a year, representing about 10 more patients a day. The stress from bigger caseloads prompted some nurses to resign, he said. “Physicians are working more shifts—that pushes them a lot,” Dr. Vasquez said. “If they work too much, they get burnt out. For patients, it means longer waits.”

And, again: this was predicted, back in 2010.  We all knew that this was going to happen.  It’s just that the Democrats lied to the American people, like they lied about every other aspect of Obamacare.  And I have no compunctions whatsoever about saying I Told You So.  This was so blatantly inevitable that an English major with no professional experience in the health care field could see it coming.  Barack Obama, Rep.

They’re hurting people with this.
