Obamacare starts to hurt

As of Monday [10/1;12], Medicare will start fining hospitals that have too many patients readmitted within 30 days of discharge due to complications. The penalties are part of a broader push under President Barack Obama's health care law to improve quality while also trying to save taxpayers money.

About two-thirds of the hospitals serving Medicare patients, or some 2,200 facilities, will be hit with penalties averaging around $125,000 per facility this coming year, according to government estimates.
New Medicare fines for hospital re-admittance

Oh...and before I forget:

Of the 20 new or higher taxes in Obamacare, below are the 5 worst that will be foisted upon Americans for the first time on January 1, 2013:

The Obamacare Medical Device Tax – a $20 billion tax increase

The Obamacare “Special Needs Kids Tax” – a $13 billion tax increase

The Obamacare Surtax on Investment Income – a $123 billion tax increase:  This is a new, 3.8 percentage point surtax on investment income

The Obamacare “Haircut” for Medical Itemized Deductions – a $15.2 billion tax increase

The Obamacare Medicare Payroll Tax Hike -- an $86.8 billion tax increase
