John Stossel of Fox News has a new perspective about Obamacare, allowing him to bash the program and women simultaneously Stossel is concerned that both genders will be paying the same premiums even though females might be hypochondriacs — and as a result visit the doctor more often.
The Fox commentator was fuming about President Obama’s speech in Boston yesterday in which he spoke to a group of women assuring them they would not be charged more than men for health coverage.
According to Stossel’s theory, women paying the same rates will kill the market because they go the doctors more often. He conceded that maybe the gals are in fact smarter since they don’t hesitate to seek out medical care if they need it. But, Stossel made sure to note that women also have all those scary body parts that are high risk.
Stossel and his pal Steve Doocy are not fans of expanding the pool of people who can be insured, and apparently they don’t understand that all insurance companies utilize risk distribution.
