The emergency room is having a hard time staying open because of "cut backs and Obamacare" is this fictional Texas hospital.
But the poor infant can't have dialysis because of no insurance. (Had Texas increased medicaid coverage as offered by Obamacare,the child would be covered.) The hospital janitor's daughter can't get a scan of the lump on her abdomen because of no insurance. (But if she's under 26 years old, she's covered under her father's policy under Obamacare.) The hot Doctor's medical education was paid 100% by the U.S. Government because he was in the army at the time. I'm confused. Is the message: The government should have universal health insurance coverage and pay for the education of our doctors...even in the state of Texas?

There is the tough administrator who may have a heart of gold; the second in command who is smart, very good looking and compassionate; the macho closeted gay doctor, the nurse who... well, you get the idea. It's been done before in countless number of medical show that barely made it to 13 episodes. Still, if you like that sort of show (and I do), it's worth a watch.
