ObamaCare and Sequester Cuts Cause Cancer Clinics to Turn Away Chemo Patients!

On this morning's Fox and Friends, Peter Johnson, Jr. shared a shocking report that hits close to home for the legal analyst. Cancer clinics are reportedly turning away thousands of Medicare patients in need of chemotherapy, and apparently the sequester and ObamaCare are largely to blame.

Johnson didn't mince words about the scary revelation.

"This is about people dying as a result of ObamaCare and as a result of sequester," he said, questioning the fact that neither the president nor his administration knew that people would be turned away at community oncology clinics, where most people in the U.S. receive their oncology treatment.

"My life was saved 30 years ago by chemotherapy," Johnson shared. "Chemotherapy is expensive. At the same time [...] this is not what was promised under ObamaCare. The president needs to step up and step up quickly."
