Let me tell you guys something else about the way mandatory health care in Massachusetts. A lot of jobs here are categorized as "temporary" jobs. We have tons of temp agencies, and a lot of companies only hire employees through these agencies.
I think that has a LOT to do with the health care bill. I imagine there will be a lot more businesses only hiring employees on a temporary basis because of this. I think that's one of the negative unintentional consequences that will occur because of Obama care.
I don't understand why they refuse to do tort reform. Malpractice insurance for just a private physician costs over 150,000 dollars a year. Imagine what it costs a hospital, a surgeon? THAT is one of the main reasons we have to pay so much for healthcare services.
This entire bill is just useless. Basically it just forces you to buy insurance from anyone, some businesses are getting waivers, more people are going to be on the Medicaid roles. This entire monstrosity of a bill certainly does not address some of the most expensive problems of our health care system.
