And if you want to see massive closure of hospitals, enact Medicare for all!

Most of the time your contrarian misinformed politicized opinion is just annoying and easy to ignore. But this is different and is a critical part of any health care plan that gives all Americans and not just the elites the chance to have acceptable health care.

Medicaid expansion has been one of the best things to happen to rural healthcare ever. The reliable payment for populations that were formerly unable to pay has made all the difference in keeping rural hospitals viable and getting emergency care close to the emergencies. And it's not just emergency care but the entire spectrum of care hospitals and clinics deliver that have benefitted.The most important aspect of the ACA and expanded Medicaid is better healthcare for more people.

The evidence is so overwhelming it's not worth bringing up one reference to show you how extraordinarily wrong and tone deaf you are on this particular thing. So I have just included the first page of a Google search for you to read and get educated on rural hospitals and their key to sustainability.
