Emergency room costs can be contained and dealt with in a better way.
1. Medicaid patients often seek ER treatment for minor colds, because they don't have to pay anything.
2. Illegal immigrants also use the ER, because they know they won't have to pay.
3. The people who use ER's and don't pay...won't pay under Obamacare either. So if you think you are solving a problem, the simple fact is, you are not. You are making it worse.
4. Obamacare also encourages over-utilization of healthcare services...further adding to costs, and compounding the problem.
If expensive healthcare and un/underemployment is the problem, Obamacare is not the solution.
Socialist Democrats know this, and continue to support the law, no matter the consequences...which is insane.
