How can they have it both ways?

First we hear about many hospitals (especially in the south) having to close because people aren't paying them because people don't have insurance and can't afford to. Now I'm reading an article that I can't link here because it's a repub site, but now they're saying that a southwestern Pennsylvania hospital will stop delivering babies because they can't afford to due to health care reform.

So which is it? Now they're going to get a guaranteed pay check because it'll be mandatory everyone have health insurance, and because of this they won't be able to afford to deliver babies? How is this worse than when they weren't getting paid at all?

I'm wondering who owns this hospital?

2. Darwin at work.

 

If people are too stupid to figure out how to make hospitals work in their area then Mother Nature will cull the herd.

7. Has it occurred to you the report is bullshit? If you can't post the source here, it probably is.

The hospital isn't even name.

Quit posting right-wing crap here.
