America has no national health care plan in sight- meanwhile- the city's ONLY "public" hospital has seen a dramatic increase in unpaid medical services provided.
The Kansas City Business Journal reports that the Truman Medical Centers- the 2 campuses located on Hospital Hill and far southeastern KC-MO- has provided more than $44-million worth of unpaid medical care for it's indigent patients.
The KCBJ reports this is compared to a cost of more than $37-million in unpaid medical care for the same period in 2007- or a 19% increase in a year.
Incredibly- TMC CEO John Bluford hints that pollys should consider raising property taxes to help cover the deficits- according to his quote in the KCBJ article.
Yeah- let's raise taxes so MORE people can't afford medical care!
