  • Medicare Myths: A New Quiz Show

    You’ve probably heard some scary things about Medicare reform lately. Words like “vouchercare” and an alleged $6,400 cost increase are now permanently etched into liberal talking points — even though these myths have been debunked time and again. Our colleagues at Heritage Action are keeping a running tally of the most outrageous myths.

    Now you can play along, too. Today we introduce a new quiz show called Medicare Myths. Watch the video to see the biggest whoppers from opponents of Medicare reform. Our first episode features House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Reps. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Shelley Berkley, Chris Van Hollen, and MSNBC host Al Sharpton.

    Why should you care? Medicare is the fastest-growing federal program. Every day, approximately 10,000 seniors become eligible to receive benefits. Without reform, Medicare is unsustainable.

    Conservatives have a plan to fix it. Heritage’s Saving the American Dream proposal does just that. We believe Americans deserve an honest conversation on Medicare. Help us debunk the myths. Share this video with your family and friends.

      Regardless of who is going to pay and what they will pay, havng no Doctors or Hospitals accepting
      Medicare patients is going to be the crucial question here. Obama still thinks he can spend mney twice, wish that was true.

      Seniors for the most part don't understand this cut. A good way to educate!

      Thank you. Most of my friends (elders) don't know nor understand doing the same (voting for liberals) thing and expecting better endings…. I am thrilled you now have one the people (DeMint) I have been aware of since I joined the TEAParty Patriots in Denver. Heritage has just become one of the most important groups to hear. I joined some time back but DeMint's presence gives me reason to drop everything. Most of the folks I love in the elders do not do computers…and so I also need ways to help them. Maybe you can give a clue…they are not idiots. We didn't get this far without a whole lot of education…guess where that took us. I will try to locate a way to improve my giving to Heritage…besides the sticker on my car window :) Thank you again.
