ObozoCare: the Silent Killer

We'll remind you that preserving ObamaCare is Mitch McConnell's current priority.

Now for more bad news. 

Under ObozoCare rules, hospitals who re-admit patients less than 30 days from their discharge are fined (punished) by ObozoCare bureaucrats.  So--naturally--hospitals attempt to avoid re-admits.

Researchers found that the 30-day readmission rate (adjusted for patient risk) declined to 18.4% from 20% after the penalties were introduced. Yet the 30-day mortality rate increased to 8.6% from 7.2%—about 5,400 additional deaths per year. Over a one-year period the readmission rate fell by 0.9 percentage points while the mortality rate rose by five.  --quoted at MoonBattery

Once you're dead, you no longer cost healthcare-money.

It's not really a stretch to conclude that Mitch McConnell prefers that you DIE rather than freeing the country of ObozoCare.
