Oh yea. The CB estimated it would cost $5B to do it properly, but for some reason Congress only authorized $600M.
That shows why the right wing is full of it. Their stated goal was to destroy the law and they did everything they could to accomplish this. They have failed and now they are only left with complaining about the problems they created themselves.
They could have built a working website for less than 10 million.It didn't cost amazon 600 million and they handle 10 times the traffic that Obozo's website would have handled.What a freking joke.Obozoscam will fail on it's own merits.Well merits is a bad word here because this law was sold on a pack of lies and apparently you were one of the suckers that bought it.hahahahahahahaha

Like 80 percent of Americans: I have and have had health insurance.

There is not one single American that goes without healthcare.Not a single American is turned away from an emergency dept when they need it.There is community clinics all around this country that treat the less fortunate.There is childrens hospitals that treat children where parents do not have to pay a dime.Your point was pointless!!

Yes. Let them go begging for help instead of letting them buy their own insurance. Thank you Mr. Dickens.

The bonus is that it is much more expensive for the taxpayers to treat them in emergency rooms. Keep the ideas coming.

3 hospitals cited for turning away ER patients
April 23, 2012 | By Alicia Caramenico

As the first state to ban ambulance diversion in 2009, Massachusetts investigators have cited three hospitals in the past six months for wrongly diverting patients from their emergency rooms--with one case resulting in the death of a patient, reported The Boston Globe.

State investigators found that Charlton Memorial Hospital in Fall River in August failed to provide necessary medical care before transferring a patient who was unstable, in respiratory distress and died on the way to the other facility. Investigators also found Vincent Hospital in Worcester transferred a patient with flesh-eating bacteria to another hospital in October after an on-call surgeon refused to come in at night to perform an emergency operation, the article noted.

Meanwhile, Lahey Clinic workers in November told a patient he was banned from the hospital's emergency room in Peabody and Burlington. Without any evaluation or treatment, the patient was escorted off the property.

Even though Charlton, St. Vincent and Lahey all sent away ER patients, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services won't eliminate their Medicare funding because they "implemented corrective action that has been effective over the longer term," the Globe noted. However, the hospitals could face fines from the Office of the Inspector General.

Hospitals are required to provide stabilizing treatment for patients with emergency medical conditions under the Emergency Medical Treatment & Labor Act (EMTALA). If a hospital can't stabilize a patient within its capability, or if the patient requests, the hospital can offer an appropriate transfer. According to the state investigations, ER crowding didn't play a role in these patient diversions.
