Obamacare Triggers Shutdown of Free Clinics

Obamacare is undermining a key source of health care for needy Americans, according to a Wall Street Journal report.

The Journal reports nearly a dozen free health clinics have closed in the past two years, citing the healthcare law as a major reason.

Some clinics have seen a drop in patients, but others are losing donors who think all uninsured people will now be covered under the president's healthcare plan.

Meanwhile, other free clinics have actually seen a rise in patients -- people with serious illnesses, such as diabetes, who cannot otherwise afford care and medication.

The Congressional Budget Office predicts Obamacare will still leave 31 million people uninsured.
