    They will make a profit in any case.

    Before the 2.3 Trillion Dollars of Government subsidy, before the increase in the insurance premiums for all Americans and before the mandate that 30 million additional people buy insurance, before this whole extra influx of of trillions of dollars into the system via the ACA, UHC could support these people as employees (and probably pay for their insurance as well) and make a profit.

    Now they need to cut costs.

    What's wrong with this picture?

    I am not of the mind that a man is either of science or of religion. At his best and his worst, man exists in the misty glimmering where the falling angel meets the rising ape. That he chooses a direction from that point defines him as human.

    In the long term, the pain and suffering will end.

    It always does if you wait long enough.

    My point exactly.

    It goes hand in hand with the saying that all smokers quit eventually.

    WOW that is a WOPPER of a lie.

    Funnything is, there IS NO PROFIT in UHC to "maximize". This just shows you have NO CLUE what UHC is.

    There is no CEO.
    No wall street.
    No extorsion
    no jets
    no yachts
    No insurance at all

    Only a Dr that gets paid a SET SALARY no matter if he treats 100 or 1000 a year. (and no bribes by mega corps)
    you walk in , and get any and all HC you need. SIMPLE.

    Good, they are getting rid of the fraudulent extorsionist criminals that call themselves Dr's.

    Thanks for the off-topic response. I was referring to the OP of this thread. Please do not attempt to derail the thread.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    This is a quote of what you posted:


    "Originally Posted by TacticalEvilDan
    Can you tell me exactly how this is linked with Obamacare?"

    Your post was asking what the layoff of medical employees has to do with Obamacare.

    The reduction in payments to medical care facilities will amount at the current estimate in a reduction to the revenues of those businesses of about 419 billion dollars.

    How can you think that a reduction in revenues will not impact the number of employees supported by those revenues.

    We are currently at a head count reduction of about 9000 employees. It's going to rise from here.

    If you don't think this topic is entirely concerned with healthcare costs, you don't understand this topic or this thread. Here it is again. You might want to read it for understanding this time.

    If you remember, Obama changed his slogan from "Yes we can" to "You did it" in the last election. Everyone is OUR fault now.

    No, it is not. When you plan on failure, you will always get what you plan for. Failure.
