213. Here's what I think this might actually mean.
I think it will be very positive in the long run. I think it telegraphs to those who receive federal funds that if they don't comply NOW, they'll face stiffer rules in the future. And I think the majority will work to codify this into their own policies pretty quickly.

There will be a few holdouts, I suppose. There may be some hospital boards who won't be able to get a majority to approve a policy change to get them into compliance with this. But then we can turn our focus on them specifically and force them to join the rest of the country's hospitals and change their policies.

I say it's a good thing. Thank you, Mr. President.
