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

    side effect , other people can take a signal.

    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!
