Obama’s War On Poverty – Say It Isn’t So

Can it be true that the way we’re going to reform health care is to:

(1) Cut hospital reimbursement for readmissions (principally of poor people).

(2) Penalize hospitals and physicians who provide more services (principally to poor patients).

(3) Cut Disproportionate Share (DSH) payments to hospitals (which are for disproportionate numbers of poor patients)

(4) Reduce the amount of subsidies for low-income individuals to buy insurance.

Say it isn’t so.
