Former Vice President Dick Cheney wouldn't have survived his heart problems if Obamacare had been in effect, Fox News' Dr. Marc Siegel says.
 
"He himself would not be alive today if Obamacare was in place 10, 20 years ago, because every time the stoplight was red it turned green just as he got there," Siegel said Monday on Fox News Channel's "Hannity."
 
Cheney's new book, "Heart: An American Medical Odyssey," details the multiple times that medical technology advanced just in time to provide him what he needed.
 
"He got all these devices just in time," Siegel said. "Innovation may be squashed with the Obamacare climate, and he personally is worried about it."
 
Cheney recently told "Fox & Friends" the medical device tax would have kept the lifesaving technology that has kept him alive from ever being introduced.
 
"If you want less of something, you tax it. And putting a tax on medical devices will slow down that whole process of innovation that saved my life and the life of millions of others," Cheney said.
