The Mercy Medical Center in Des Moines, Iowa has laid off 29 employees. The president of the hospital, Bob Ritz has blamed Obamacare in part, reports Breitbart News:
“As the federal government and state payment systems continue to ratchet down on what they pay us and our costs go up, we have to look for opportunities to create cost efficiencies,” Ritz said. “And one way you do that is you reduce your management costs."
"So if we have a department that has a director and a manager and two supervisors for let’s say 75 staff, we may remove one of those positions to what we say are the layers of management.”
For a program that was supposed to reduce healthcare costs and create jobs, Obamacare is sure proving to be very expensive.
