Clinic Obama Praised In Obamacare Speeches Cutting Budget Because Of...

You guessed it.

An Ohio clinic that was touted by Obama while he was speaking on health care reform is now blaming ObamaCare after it was forced to cut $330 million from its budget.

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.

Summarizing: not only is he failing at “fixing” health care, he’s exacerbating the unemployment problem he’s promised to get under control for five years.

Pivot, anyone?
