Was that supposed to be an attempt at being funny or just showcase that you're acting like an ass? The answer is both.

You are responding to a post from our town idiot Sopper. Notice the Willie Wonka dated response "Good DAY". That was one of his failed attempts at humor. The whole post is odd in nature and should be a warning that "Megahead" sopper is acting out again.

Layoffs are indeed necessary at SVH.Too many long term employees stuck in doing things in the outdated manner of years gone by.They either can't change or won't change as times and regulations have changed.The place lost 11 million last year alone!They've been bleeding millions over the past few years and their archaic business practices just could not continue.The image of traditional nuns emptying metal bed pans still remains so prevelent in the minds of a lot of people but those times and ways of operating no longer exist.It's a shame that SVH never got the message.Now it's up to Highmark to try and fix a totally disfunctional situation mired in an out of control mess of their own doing.The fat must be trimmed in order to allow the hospital to continue.Even the Sisters of St.Joseph finally came to understand this inevitable conclusion.

OH BOO HOO

StV did the same thing in the mid 90s. I suppose that was Obama's fault, too.

<quoted text> No, that was Hillary Clintons fault. Check the timeline from when she came out and tried to push national health care and the HMOs popping up and the hospitals trying to protect themselves by merging. and cutting costs by cutting staff. I worked up there at the time and that is what really happened. You are going to see a lot more layoffs as insurance companies buy hospitals and dont need billing staff or other management because they farm it out to cheaper firms. Thanks to obamacare. Elections have consequences and the first to be laid off should be the ones that voted for obama.
Cool story, bro. Now tell us about your adventures in space exploration.
