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.
