Nancy Pelosi: ''Waiting hours longer in the emergency room will allow you to make new friends!''
Among the many fears people are expressing about the
Affordable Care Act is the supposed extra hours it will force people to spend
if they have the misfortune of having to go to hospital emergency rooms.
Critics claim that those enrolled in
"Obamacare" (a term I personally dislike but have to use, or else the
commoners out there won't know what I'm speaking about) will be forced to sit
even longer in hospital emergency care rooms due to doctors being forced out of
the profession, thereby leaving emergency rooms understaffed, and so forcing
people to overwhelm them with minor ailments, compounding insurance companies
with tons of more red tape that will cause them to reject patients to regular
doctors' and specialists' offices much more than ever. And don't forget the
people now forced or choosing to join Medicaid that should never be on it,
which will clog up emergency rooms, as the E.R.s will become as common to them
as visiting their pharmacies for a simple cold.
