Compassionate Conservatism

Hospitals Urged to Cut Uninsureds' Costs

The government on Thursday urged hospitals to cut charges for uninsured patients, rejecting hospitals' argument that they are constrained by federal rules.

Grand, rather than do something the Government asks for Hospitals to charge less. Well, I am sure that is going to work. Many hospitals are for-profit businesses and even the non-proift ones have no interest in losing money. Needless to say, the Hospitals have declined to follow the government's advice. This is like trying to eliminate poverty by asking businesses to raise wages and expand payrolls.
