Will Obamacare Lead to Layoffs?

Bob Ritz, President of Mercy Medical Center in Des Moines, Iowa, recently reported 29 layoffs due in part to Obamacare.

“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.

Will looking for ways to “create cost efficiencies” affect healthcare nation-wide? The full effects of the Affordable Care Act remain to be seen.

    My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using
    WordPress on numerous websites for about a year and am
    nervous about switching to another platform. I have heard great things about blogengine.net.

    Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it?
    Any help would be really appreciated!

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something that I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and very broad for me. I
    am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

    Definitely imagine that that you stated. Your favorite justification seemed to be at the net the simplest factor to be mindful of.
    I say to you, I definitely get irked while other folks think about concerns that
    they just do not realize about. You controlled
    to hit the nail upon the top and outlined out the whole thing with no need
    side effect , other people can take a signal.
    Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

    Hey this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if
    blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get guidance
    from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to
    make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving
    us something informative to read?
