So, How's That Obamacare Working For You?

POTUS made a lot of promises about Obamacare. Lower premiums. More
people covered. If you like your plan..............

And, Obamacare was supposed to REDUCE ER visits.

Three-quarters of emergency physicians say they've seen ER patient visits surge since Obamacare took effect — just the opposite of what many Americans expected would happen. - USA Today
No real surprise there,

So why did it happen?
In addition to the nation's long-standing shortage of primary care doctors — projected by the federal government to exceed 20,000 doctors by 2020 — some physicians won't accept Medicaid because of its low reimbursement rates. That leaves many patients who can't find a primary care doctor to turn to the ER — 56% of doctors in the ACEP poll reported increases in Medicaid patients.
Isn't that special?
