And absolutely not your doctor. While campaigning for national health care, our “Conspiracy Theorist-in-Chief” repeatedly claimed that a doctor would rather amputate your foot or leg and make $50,000 than treat you for diabetes because “if that same diabetic ends up getting their foot amputated, that’s $30,000, $40,000, $50,000 — immediately the surgeon is reimbursed.” (Leaving aside Obama’s unwarranted slander against doctors, Medicare reimburses a surgeon $740 to $1,140 for a leg amputation.)
