The Republican ‘War On Women’ – The Yeah….He Really Did Say That Edition – ‘Fox News expert: ‘Women have the breasts’ so health care should cost more than men’

This is what passes as an ‘expert’ on FOX and remember this is watched and worshiped by millions of Republican Conservatives.

‘A Fox News medical expert on Tuesday argued that President Barack Obama’s administration was wrong to force gender equality for health insurance rates because men “only have the prostate,” while women “have the breasts, they have the ovaries.”

“Look, it’s not bias, I’m not saying this as a man,” Fox News Medical A-Team contributor Dr. David Samadi told the hosts of Fox & Friends. “They go through a lot of preventive screenings, they give birth, they have the whole mammogram, the Pap smear. Guys, we don’t like to go to doctors, right? Seventy percent of health care decisions are made by women. In my own practice, I see it’s the women who bring the guys, who say, go get screened.”

“Yeah, but shouldn’t that earn us a discount?” Fox News host Gretchen Carlson interrupted. “Basic fact that we are responsible for getting our men to come to the doctor? And what about the fact that women, because they do all this preventative care, maybe their health issues end up costing less than men’s, who don’t go to the doctor until it’s a crisis and a big deal.”

“Yes, that’s a good point, except that, you know, women live longer,” Samadi asserted. “Women live until age 81 and men live only until 76. So, we’re using the health care system much less.”

    Reblogged this on The ObamaCrat™.

  2. This war is gaining power and women need to speak their truth. Don’t let sexist men and women decide how you live your life.

    • The media, for the lost part, doesn’t cover stories like this.
      Be it a common place or it doesn’t boost their ratings I don’t know.
      Republican legislatures are slowly but steadily crippling women’s health care in the name of ‘Right To Life’.
      My sad guess is this will stay on the ‘back burner’ until the 2014 midterms and maybe not even then unless as you stated – women and men start speaking out.

      • You have to remember that the “media” is basically all corporate owned propaganda mills. I gave up on the media a long time ago.

      • FOX is the Republican propaganda but it’s not that they are – it’s that even for propaganda – this is dumbing down their viewers to a new low.

    Don’t let sexist men and women run your life or make your choices.

    Oh please. No bias??? I am appalled and growing weary of the bias. I wonder how far they are going to take this thing to continue to try and keep women down and in their place. Hogwash.

    • That’s a very good question – ‘For how long’.
      My best answer is that it has become a part of the ‘new’ Republican Party. A social conservativism that goes to extremes.
