Fox Gives Shout Out To Socialized Medicine Supporter In Order To Attack Obama

Reported by Ellen - June 21, 2009 -

You can barely turn on Fox News these days without hearing someone scream that "socialized medicine" is about to be foisted on the U.S., even though President Barack Obama has suggested nothing of the sort. So it was no surprise to see the blaring headline on Fox Nation, "Obama’s Own Doctor Knocks ObamaCare!" It's not until one clicks through to the article that one finds out the physician, Dr. David Scheiner, though still an "enthusiastic Obama supporter," thinks Obama's plan is not socialized enough.

The article states: "What should the president be focused on? Scheiner thinks that a good health reform would be 'Medicare for all,' a single-payer system where the government would cover everyone and pay for it by cutting out waste in the system. 'A neurosurgeon gets paid $20,000 for cutting into the neck of my patient. Have him get paid $1 million a year instead of $2 million or $3 million. He won't starve,' Scheiner says."
