Unionize Doctors and Nurses?
Both House and Senate versions of Obamacare aim to establish forced unionization of the healthcare industry.
Will a union shop steward in the emergency room of a hospital refuse to permit a GP to perform emergency measures, because the union contract work rules reserve certain procedures for designated specialists? Will hospitals be required, as unionized business now are, to employ excessively large staffs in order to pad union dues receipts?
