Rep. Bobby Rush has called for a congressional hearing into allegations that the University of Chicago Medical Center refused treatment to low-income, uninsured patients.Republicans want to keep the current failed health care where for profit insurance executives control a persons health care not a doctor. Republicans receive millions in contributions from the health care industry that bribe them.
The issue has been a widespread problem in hospitals throughout the country, Rush said in the May 25 letter to Rep. Ed Towns (D-N.Y.), chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. Rush said "the pervasive impact of patient dumping are felt especially in more recent times, when so many Americans suffer under extreme economic hardship and diminishing access to health care."
At issue is the hospital's Urban Health Initiative, which steers patients who lack private insurance -- primarily poor blacks -- to other facilities.
The move puts Rush at odds with several people in President Obama's inner circle. First lady Michelle Obama, as an executive at the U. of C. Hospitals, helped create the program. White House adviser Valerie Jarrett signed off on the program when she was the hospital board's chairwoman. White House senior adviser David Axelrod was hired to promote the program. And Obama's buddy Dr. Eric Whitaker currently runs the program.
