"Americans are dying younger, from largely preventable disease and bad health policy decisions. And the problem that I have with this is heart disease alone costs about $230 billion to the United States, and the Affordable Care Act did nothing to help that except take away. "They took away the incentivizations for good behavior choices, by saying that however you act, whatever you do, everything's going to be covered.

"And so preventable illness is running rampant across the United States." " Fox News medical "expert" Dr. Nicole Saphier, who ended her segment by promoting her new book. Its title: "Make America Healthy Again." Seriously.

Between Dershowitz's claims about it being lawful for a President to do anything he thinks might help him get reelected and this Fox doctor.....I seriously doubt that anyone on the right, any Fox News viewer, has anthing upstairs except mush.

If you cover cancer, people are going to be like Ayn Rand and get cancer, just to spend your taxes out of spite.

The irony being a significant percentage of the bobbleheads watching this are obese and likely diabetic.

You gotta hand it to Fox. They're really good at convincing people to vote against their own interests.

So it's a bunch of cliches mixed with a stretched "c-c-conservative" philosophy. And by philosophy I mean squawking "big government" even when it's absurd.

I give her credit, though. She's tapping into the giant money well that is rightwing stupidity. Gotta pay those med school loans somehow.
