Today it was reported that prestigious Cleveland Clinic workers will be losing their jobs thanks to ObamaCare.
That’s right – this is the same Cleveland Clinic that President Obama rightfully praised just 4 years ago as being an example of a hospital that we need to learn from and “replicate (their) best practices across the country.”
The Cleveland Clinic is the region’s largest employer, and currently employees over 40,000 people.
Check out the clinic’s statement on the reason behind their (unspecified number) of cuts:
Although we have made progress, we need to further reduce costs to the organization by $330 million in 2014. We are carefully evaluating all aspects of our system to accomplish this. Some of the initiatives include offering early retirement to 3,000 eligible employees, reducing operational costs, stricter review of filling vacant positions, and lastly workforce reductions.
A spokeswoman for the clinic said that the layoffs will be across the board – and that even their doctors aren’t safe from the cuts. These reports continue to pour in – and it’s clear that at this point, the health care law has had a steady hand in hurting America’s jobs and economy. When will it stop? Photo c/o Gus Chan
