The ObamaCare Layoffs continue to pile up.  In this edition, we see some medical providers that are taking action to stay in business-by laying off workers.  Michelle  Malkin has the details…

The ramping up (or down, depending on how you look at it) for full implementation of Obamacare continues:

In the largest staff reduction in its nearly 100-year history, Orlando Health is cutting up to 400 jobs starting immediately, hospital system officials announced Monday.

The move is part of a broader effort to position the hospital system for the health-care overhaul, CEO Sherrie Sitarik said.

The elimination of jobs will occur in two phases and represents a 2 percent to 3 percent reduction in the system’s 16,000-person work force, said Orlando Health spokeswoman Kena Lewis. The cuts affect all departments and all eight of the system’s hospitals, including Orlando Regional Medical Center and Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children, two of the system’s better-known facilities.
Such cost-cutting measures are happening across the country. On Wednesday, Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in North Carolina announced that it would cut 950 jobs by June.

Last month, Louisiana State University announced it would cut 1,495 positions as well as programs across its seven hospitals to trim more than $150 million from its budget.

So it continues.  There will be more ObamaCare layoffs, from all sectors.  And they will number in the thousands, if not hundreds of thousands.  And, of course, they will all be someone else’s fault-at least if you listen to the MSM.

In the end, elections have consequences, and a vote for Obama was a vote for these job losses.

Welcome to Doug Ross and Bad Blue Readers, Thanks!

  • One thing that we tried to warn people about was the fact that the worst of Obamacare–and the effects of it–wouldn’t be seen or felt until after the election and of course this was done intentionally. Now we are seeing our predictions come true and there is nothing we can do about it.

  • My doctor — and I’ve been his patient since 1990 — just sent out a notice that his practice is converting to a form of concierge care. That means that Mr. AOW will have to pay about $100/month to continue being our doctor’s patients!

    I can’t blame my doctor for taking such a step. After all, the majority of his patients are on Medicare, and Medicare payments to doctors will be suffering substantial cuts. Furthermore, ObamaCare creates all sorts of mandates for doctors to fulfill, so doctors have to have the personnel to comply with those mandates.
