Thank You ObamaCare: Hospital Prices Soar, a Stitch Tops $500

All of you who voted for Obama and by association, ObamaCare: I hope that you are happy that you probably wrecked the cheapest, best care in the world.

You know, there is a reason why people from all over the world USED to travel to the US for treatment. Now they go elsewhere.

ObamaCare is further proof that as soon as the state takes over something, it destroys the quality and increases the cost.  The opposite occurs when the free market is allowed to reign.

 

With blood oozing from deep lacerations, the two patients arrived at California Pacific Medical Center’s tidy emergency room. Deepika Singh, 26, had gashed her knee at a backyard barbecue. Orla Roche, a rambunctious toddler on vacation with her family, had tumbled from a couch, splitting open her forehead on a table.

On a quiet Saturday in May, nurses in blue scrubs quickly ushered the two patients into treatment rooms. The wounds were cleaned, numbed and mended in under an hour. “It was great — they had good DVDs, the staff couldn’t have been nicer,” said Emer Duffy, Orla’s mother.
