Please. Before HCR, uninsured people could go to an ER and not be turned away.
Now, when the same uninsured can have primary care, that they didn't have before, ER visits will decrease.
That is just common sense logic.

this is nothing more than a scare tactic.anyone who has been to an er lately knows all about 8 hour waits to see a doctor.if they are truly afraid of newly insured still using emergency rooms as a primary care doctor what is needed is massive consumer education not a dose of scary spin.

Scare tactics from the right. Thank God Obama has started to answer the health care question. Does everybody deserve the right to be healed? What would Jesus do?
