Dr. Marc Siegel, part of Fox's Medical A-Team, had himself a little love-fest with former Vice President Dick Cheney last week, which they've been airing portions of all week long -- because nothing puts them in the holiday spirit like bringing in Darth Vader to attack the horrors of "Obamacare" and frighten any small children that might happen through the room while great-grandpa is watching television.

After making the ridiculous claim that Cheney would not be alive today if "Obamacare" were around decades ago (and ignoring the fact that Dick Cheney probably would be dead now if he did not have his government-provided health care) Siegel wrapped things up asking Cheney what he wanted the audience to take away after reading his new book, and summed the interview up with this remark:

SIEGEL: Dick Cheney, back in the game thanks to a new heart and is a living example of what he says we all stand to lose under Obamacare.

Siegel apparently lives in some alternative universe where we all have single-payer health care. This is the same man that was complaining in October that "too many people have health insurance."

Can you help us out?
