ER visits soar under ObamaCare

Surprise, surprise...Backers of ObamaCare have said it would reduce the number of visits to emergency rooms, The Wall Street Journal notes, but in fact, a poll of ER doctors finds that number has been climbing. "Visits  are  going up despite the (Affordable Care Act), and in a lot of cases because of it," a spokesman for the American College of Emergency Physicians tells the Journal. The findings come from a March poll of 2,098 doctors, three-quarters of whom said they'd seen ER visits increase since January 2014. Last year, less than half of doctors polled noted an increase.
