Chicago Hospital Fires Doctor Who Opposed ObamaCare

Dr. Barbara Bellar, the Chair of the Ethics Committee at Metro South and a Republican State Senate candidate in Illinois, who has been a nun and an army major, famously summed up ObamaCare in a viral video as;

“A healthcare plan we are forced to purchase, and fined if we don’t, which puportedly covers at least 10 million more people, without adding a single new doctor, but provides for 16,000 new IRS agents, written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn’t understand it, passed by a congress that didn’t read it but exempted themselves from it, and signed by a president who smokes, with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn’t pay his taxes, for which we will be taxed for four years before any benefits take effect, by a government which has already bankrupted social security and medicare, all to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese and financed by a country that’s broke.”

Now Dr. Bellar has apparently been fired from her position at Metro South, a Chicago hospital.

The hospital has refused to comment on the firing, citing confidentiality in personnel matters. But when Bellar asked for a meeting with management, she states that the powers that be failed to give her a definitive answer as to why her contract was not renewed.

Bellar says that she can only assume, then, that losing her job was connected to her viral video in which she blasted President Obama and Democrats in Congress for foisting on the public the monstrosity that has come to be known as “ObamaCare.”

During her meeting with hospital management, Bellar asked that her attorney be present, given that the legal team for MetroSouth would be attending the meeting as well. But before the meeting began, she was told that her attorney would have to leave the room if she wanted the meeting to continue. Once Bellar’s attorney was out of the meeting, she states that she still was not given a specific reason as to why her contract was not renewed, which in itself suggests legal culpability on the part of the medical facility.

Bellar’s ratings among patients and fellow physicians have consistently ranked high in the 96 percent range. She has had no complaints registered against her. The hospital has not laid off physicians due to financial difficulty.

    Okay then she should play their game and sue the sh*t out of them.

    Welcome to the USSA our fascism is kinder and gentler.

  • Mary Sue

    yeah I think she's got a basis for a wrongful termination suit, right there. Not surprised that a Chicago hospital is part of the Obamafia.

  • Thomas Wells

    At least there is one physician in america who remembers, and practices by, the Hippocratic oath.

  • TXJenny

    Now she should leave Chicago for Texas. Let the exodus begin.

  • carolinasistah

    She has no basis for a law suit. She is in a 'management' type position so does not have protection of the NLRB. She has no protection based upon race, age, gender, disability, religion, veteran status; therefore she is not protected under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. This is not a compensation issue so no protections are offered there. She is screwed!

      With all due respect, how is is "screwed" to be fired from a hospital in Chicago in a state that is even more fiscally screwed up than California? They did her a favor. She can now move to a southern state and enjoy the rest of her life.

    • ImpeachThatPunk

      You're right, in part… Hope folks will read a little better — HER CONTRACT is not being renewed. She's NOT being fired. They're just not going to sign a new one with her…
      That said, she ain't screwed…
      Not even in the least…
      With her rating, record & expertise, she just needs to decide where to live… that's all !!!
      Houston, Dallas… her choice… literally…

      "She has no basis for a law suit."

      You have no idea if that's true or not. Your theories are not the only ones that can be used as a basis for a suit. Have you examined her contract? I didn't think so.

    Chicago politics.

    And they fire a good doctor like her right when the country needs every doctor it can find for the impending Obamacare-induced shortage? And I wonder if Metro South Hospital, that fired the good doctor for speaking “truth to power” is one of the hospitals that got all the indigent patients dumped on them from David Axelrod’s scheme to empty The University of Chicago Medical Center’s pro bono rolls onto area hospitals and clinics by putting Michelle Obama’s face in front of the evil act, to stifle “community” opposition. In fact, the scheme paid her so well, that she earned enough “pieces of silver” to drive her right into the famous "1 Percenters" that her husband always demonizes.

    RULE 12: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.

    I have even looked up the meaning of Chicago, it is an Indian name meaning "Bad smell" or "Skunk weed".

    Now you know why Obama and his minions live there…..sad…:(

    She can join the blue state exodus of producers to dynamic red states like Texas, where I live. There is plenty of opportunity for hard working free thinkers here. We also know what to do with snakes & skunks when we find 'em too!

  • Crosscut

    She can move to the new capital of America, Texas, or leave the country. That's about it. The GOP will never elect another president. The looters and moochers, until civil war breaks out or there is total economic collapse, now have traditional Americans outnumbered. Obviously the people aren't hurting enough after four years of Obama and it will take four more for them to realize that Obama and the Democrat Party are not their friends.

  • Larry T

    Tell that nice lady to get herself to Texas asap. We always welcome productive people. We all realize that Obama-Care is unsustainable and will not financially affordable.

  • Lady_Dr

    I booked my ticket today – Texas here I come.

    Good luck to you all. Remember speech is a right that can be abused and action likewise may be irresponsible Be wary of false promises. And don't accept any Government programs, federal, state or local in ANY form. Think of all those programs Fire, police dept motor vehicle, CDC, OSHA, local and state s hool, boards, Board of Health, Zoning, code violations, Court systems all levels, federal roads and state road systems, FAA, customs, boarder patrol, state federal prisons, Secret Service, Health Depts State and local, social Security, Medicare, Federal grants , FCC , Army Corp of Engineers, Libraries public, street lighting, sanitation trash pick ups, USDA, US Forrestry, local, state Ariculture depts , FBI, Coast Guard, our Great Military. PEw grants SEC, FIDC, NLRB, AEC, and thousands of government agencies and programs dealing with the common welfare and the pursuit of life, liberty and happiness. And what about the Bill of Rights and Amendments. That is our Government.
    God save these people and The United States of America
    best of luck to those who leave for Texas.

    Since our 43rd Presiden

Always remembering we are a Country where a person's deeds and abilities are the best measure of character.

  • Eric Craiger


    Great thinking. Let me pick the ones, as a YANKEE, would like to see disappear
    local school, boards
    code violations
    Court systems all levels
    federal roads (have you driven the crappy interstates in Texas?)
    boarder patrol (because Obama lets prosecutors put agents in jail for rightfully shooting)
    Secret Service (we don't like the prez remember)
    social Security (should have saved and not spent)
    Medicare (why have this when we pay for this "insurance" or pay for the bad debt to hospitals)
    FCC (you mean like narrowbanding, forcing states to 700Mhz systems, making TV go digital, etc, right?)
    Army Corp of Engineers (great! they flood everything and F* it up. nature can do that)
    street lighting (think of all the energy it would save!)
    sanitation (back home in Texas my parents have two barrels buried in the ground – works great)
    trash pick ups (I pay for mine)
    USDA – (grade A eggs. yay)
    US Forestry (they never plant trees or do controlled burning in these parts)
    local Ariculture depts
    FBI – we have the state police thank you
    Coast Guard – another very unorganized govt
    Pew grants (GRANTS aka TAX MONEY)
    SEC (just tax trades)
    FIDC <- do what?
    NLRB <- I work 60 hours a week. I'm salary. They don't care.
    AEC <- who?
    thousands of government agencies – yes
    You read my mind exactly!
