Charity for the uninsured is one of the factors that could discourage enrollment in Obamacare, which requires all Americans to purchase health insurance or else face new taxes themselves from the IRS.
“It requires tax-exempt hospitals to do a community needs survey and file additional paperwork with the IRS every three years. This is to prove that the charitable hospital is still needed in their geographical area — ‘needed’ as defined by Obamacare and overseen by IRS bureaucrats,” said John Kartch, spokesman for Americans for Tax Reform.
yeah, they care; about money and about control.
Speaking of which,
Federal officials have a secret list of 11 Obamacare health insurance co-ops they fear are on the verge of failure, but they refuse to
disclose them to the public or to Congress, a Daily Caller News
Foundation investigation has learned.
Just in the last three weeks, five of the original 24 Obamacare
co-ops announced plans to close, bringing the total of failures to nine
barely two years after their launch with $2 billion in start-up capital
from the taxpayers under the Affordable Care Act.
Freaking wonderful, isn't it?
Aaron Albright, chief CMS spokesman, said 11 co-ops “are either on a
corrective action plan or enhanced oversight. We have not released the
letters or names.” He gave no grounds for withholding the information
from either the public or Congress.
I can answer the grounds: "We don't want to, and you can't make us."

But don't worry TOO much,
The Met Office-led study claimed that although the effect will be offset

winters in years to come.
Y'know, that warming that the satellite data says isn't happening?
