What happens to St. Jude if Obamacare is passed?

Would the world's premier Children's Cancer Research and Treatment center be rendered useless?

Why do you think it would?

Would there all of a sudden be a better place to get cancer treatment? or conduct cancer research?

It's a charity hospital for families who cannot afford the extensive costs of cancer treatment in their hometown, it operates on the donations of those in the community.

Since everyone can afford all healthcare if this is passed, wouldn't a family simply stay in their hometown for the treatment??

I don't think Willis Knighten, OLOL or other hospitals are likely to give the same care as St. Judes.

And their donations will go down because less people donate to charities or will donate less money!

Donations to charitable hospitals should drop as taxes increase on the wealthy and the needs of all are met by Obama care. Why pay a charity to do what is being done so splendidly by Obama?
