Fox Doctor Who Thinks Too Many People Have Health Insurance Helps Promote Tom Price For HHSPosted: 2016-12-31
Dr. Nicole Saphier, the doctor who previously complained about too many people having health insurance under Obamacare, helped promote Donald Trump’s pick for Secretary of Health and Human Services, Obamacare enemy Tom Price, as a terrific choice.
Saphier visited Fox & Friends to comment on a petition signed by 5700 doctors opposing Price because of his stance on Obamacare, Medicaid and Medicare. Saphier has already complained on Fox that “We need to make our doctors happier” because “We’re in the midst of a physician burnout and shortage crisis due to all of these newly insured patients.”
But instead of looking to bring in more practitioners to serve the additional patients, Saphier seems to think it would be better to limit patient access to health care. And that is something Price will almost certainly try to do.
Saphier sounded as though physician unhappiness is the biggest and possibly only problem in our health care system.
