Rep. Weiner Calls Out Republicans For Hypocrisy On Medicare

Rep Anthony Weiner on the "Ryan Plan."


I listened to an interview of two economists, Paul Krugman and Douglas Holtz-Eakin, talking about Ryans budget plan and here's how Krugman described the Medicare problem Weiner is discussing:
"...the Medicare plan, which is to replace Medicare with a system of vouchers that will be well below the actual cost of health insurance for senior Americans. The part of the plan that's real is a plan to take about $3 trillion from the neediest Americans and give it to wealthy Americans and corporations."
Listen to the whole thing (only about 8 mins) here.
