and as predicted medicaid patients are flocking to hospitals for care - because it is nigh on impossible to find doctors who will treat a medicaid patient since the rate they pay is based on 1968 fees... doctors cannot afford to treat medicaid patients... the hospitals are going to be overloaded.

yep...a study out here in Oregon shows that people who previously did not have insurance and just went to the ER when they were sick, go to the ER even more often now that they have insurance.

Huge fiasco building....
