Hundreds in Ohio Lose Their Doctor Due to Obamacare
Weekly Standard ^ | January 22, 2014 | DANIEL HALPER

Hundreds in Ohio are losing their doctor due to Obamacare, a local news outlet finds:

"With the passage of the Affordable Care Act, some area medical facilities saying, they're no longer able to use some insurance companies," says the anchor.

The local reporter adds, "Hundreds of people in the Mahoning Valley can no longer go to their trusted doctors, and local officials say the Affordable Care Act is to blame. Doctors from the Mahoning county medical society sat down with U.S. representative Bill Johnson today, discussing their concerns with United Health Care's decision to drop local doctors, including the Eye Care Associates in Beaver Township, from their Medicare Advantage plans. That means patients either have to change doctors or pay out of their own pockets."

One doctor tells the reporters that people are "really scared" at the prospect of having to change doctors.

Thanks, Ohio... along with Florida, Colorado, Nevada and my state of Virginia, throwing down with that evil imp of Satan in Nov 2012 for the second straight election. You five former “swing” states could’ve stopped this mess in its tracks.

Make sure to vote for Boehner so Obamacare can’t be repealed.

Stupid idiots can burn in hell. I really don’t care.

We got Californicated here in Colorado. I did my part and worked for the party etc. But with Denver on welfare and Boulder too high to give a damn. What can you do? That is where the population of Colorado is. The people from California moved here to get away from liberals and lo’ and behold they brought all the liberal nonsense with them.

And, many of us tried, ScottinVA. But we couldn’t win out against rampant vote fraud in the three major metros that control the state. Look at the vote map of the state, and you will very clearly see that Zero was coronated the second time by Cleveland, Columbus, and Cincinnati, with an assist from Dayton and Toledo. The rest of the state is solidly conservative.
This issue can best be addressed by splitting up the state into three new states. Same for the other “swing” states you mention, and a lot of the others, too.

Since only Democrats voted for Obamacare, then only Democrats should have to obey Obamacare. Since Republicans repute Obamacare, they should not have to participate in the destructive program.

They why they had to ramp up the fraud in those states.

Not hard to put together a few hundred thousand extra votes spread over five states when they had 140% of all voters in many districts voting for the black guy

Gerrymandering of congressional districts was implemented so blacks could get elected by blacks. Of course it ended up with democrats getting elected by blacks. We need to gerrymander some districts so whites can get elected by whites.

Unfortunately I live in a deep blue Ohio county, next to Cuyahoga County. I did everything I could to expose that rat O and get people to vote against him. Forget it.

I talked up Kasich and he turned around and screwed us. I sent him a nasty-gram letting him know it. Haven’t heard back from him, or Herrod Brown or Marcy Kaptur.

I knew Obama was going to destroy us, shame on me, I didn’t think Kasich would be so quick to abandon us.
