A Sign of Even Worse Things To Come

What an absolute outrage this is!  I was so amazed by this headline that I actually looked it up on Snopes first to make sure it wasn't a hoax.  It looks like the only ones pushing seniors off a cliff are the Obamacare Democrats! Everyone should be up in arms over this, but I doubt it will even make the nightly news:

"Thousands of doctors fired by United Health Care:  NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH)-- In the midst of major changes in health care, UnitedHealthCare has sent thousands of pink slips to Connecticut doctors.   
Termination letters went to physicians caring for Medicare patients. Those letters were sent out to doctors caring for 'Medicare Advantage' patients. It's a plan, marketed to Seniors to provide additional services through UnitedHealthCare.
A mix of primary care and specialty doctors are affected by it. And it comes at a questionable time. Open enrollment for Medicare starts next Tuesday, and it's still not clear at this time as to which doctors are still in the United network."
