Medicare Myths: A New Quiz Show

Posted By Rob Bluey On October 19, 2012 @ 8:37 am In Featured | Comments Disabled

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 [1].

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 [2]. 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 [3] proposal does just that. We believe Americans deserve an honest conversation [4] on Medicare. Help us debunk the myths. Share this video with your family and friends.
