    Default Ohio clinic touted by Obama slashes budget due to ObamaCare

    "Fox 8 reports the Cleveland Clinic, which is the largest employer in Northeast Ohio with about 39,000 workers in the region, announced the cuts to its 2014 budget at a meeting Wednesday.

    A spokeswoman for the clinic tells Fox News the clinic is being forced to cut back to prepare for increased costs and decreased revenue under the health care reform law.

    These changes will include offering early retirement to approximately 3,000 employees, reducing operational costs, and then layoffs as needed.

    The clinic says its main priority is to continue to provide a high quality of care during the transition, an attribute that led Obama to tout it in 2009 as an example of what hospitals could be under ObamaCare.

    In a press conference in July of that year, Obama said the Cleveland Clinic is an example of health care that works “well.”"

    Thing that kills me is we're stuck with this monstrosity and there are people who still think this is a brilliant plan.
