Government-run healthcare is sounding worse and worse

Recall this story about how Boston Medical Center is poised to lose a massive $175 million this year thanks to the very health care reform that Barack Obama wants to impose on the whole country. Take a look at the future:
Large urban teaching hospitals - including hospitals that are the biggest engines of the Boston economy - are facing the loss of hundreds of millions of dollars under national health care reform as rural lawmakers on Capitol Hill wage a fight to win more federal cash for their local institutions.
As the BMC model shows, this will only hurt the poor patients that government-run healthcare was supposed to help. This is why Obama is trying to rush legislation through Congress before representatives can listen to those they represent.

Extra - Congress says: "state-run healthcare for thee, but not for me."

More - Minuteman: "Trouble in paradise."
