While lying in politics is as old -- politics itself and what website Politico -- tries to separate the facts from the fiction.
Also has a lie of the year award and here is this year's winner.
-- Did someone call the fire department.
Because it's up but they just -- here.
He's responsible for the the content of this -- Kind of like that humorous edged weapon a lot of people take issue with the facts not so liberal radio talk show host Thom Hartmann says the fact checking website has it all wrong.
But -- First of all this is not.
Eight a conservative website by any stretch it's a liberal website they've they've picked on conservatives in the past so it can't accuse some -- -- Although the last three years that lie of the year has been Republican yeah hand they've gotten so much heat for that that I think that they picked Democrat this -- The -- -- the the fact of the matter is.
That it wasn't the Democrats who are making the claim that Paul Ryan was trying to fundamentally change and privatize in -- -- -- it was the Wall Street Journal.
And plus the fact chose to ignore that and point the Democrats -- just as you look at the ad itself says -- Republicans voted to and that Medicare that's just not right -- That is he thought if I -- or it's not a lot of mechanical.
It's not -- people voted for.
If I think -- coconut Q&A milk -- -- the Coke out and I for the milk into it.
And I hold -- as a single although it's still called -- this is Coke it's not it's not now you take substantive quality government paid for.
Single Payer program Medicare and and you voucher -- and privatize it and open it up for the private it's a broader marketplace and all kinds of these leeches and insurance company's commitment and suck money out without it.
You're no longer have -- document all of that is that this this ad and the one work Graham has pushed off the cliff.
Shows papal letter in her 70s80s night.
Paul Ryan's plan it would not affect anybody who is 55 and over.
Those people are eventually going to be in their 506070.
All but it doesn't say that in the -- shows Paul Ryan and fortunate nadir cold the -- I mean they're suggesting that he's he's about to rip up Medicare he's -- he's offering people a choice.
Now he has yet he -- disease of -- in Medicare and it's not all that is clear absolutely wrong you're given bad information out not only -- do -- does Paul -- states offering people a choice.
But Democrats say that as well Democrat -- as our chart -- -- -- surrogate senator -- from organ is a Democrat and he is on line we used the phrase Bryant is now with Paul Ryan saying that individuals should have a choice if they want bottle -- on why that is why I use the systems they stay with the old system if they don't they go to -- do voucher oriented there's.
Right yeah and Ron Wyden has become a complete useful idiot for the for the Republicans on this one I don't know -- -- -- themselves sort of -- -- Paul Paul -- under a democratic senator for their liberal state.
Where does that put you know.
There is a reason why the health insurance companies supported Medicare originally.
They didn't want to have to pay the expenses of older people.
Now they're saying it Paul -- said okay we're gonna issue vouchers 8000 dollars a year good -- -- -- health insurance and on the marketplace.
They will take that the -- older people and what's gonna happen is you're gonna end up with a sicker older people in the government Medicare program.
It's gonna turn into basically.
-- healthcare ghetto armistice is Medicare in trouble or not.
-- trouble because it largely because the poison pill that was put in by Republicans during the Bush Administration saying we're gonna give drugs but we're gonna pay for -- And -- -- everybody -- are has already -- -- Medicare has been bleeding money for the past thirty years.
It happened long before that prescription drug plan came in thirty years it has been leading losing money.
It's gonna double in hindsight I think what is funny to more than one trillion dollars a year Medicare is in serious trouble if you do nothing with Medicare it is going broke.
Long before they unite our planet you and I both those those assumptions you are not accurate other corners are based on the basis of fact that adversary is losing -- -- -- -- -- -- job.
And there -- -- price action that 600 billion dollars over the next decade is going to be headed up to the pharmaceutical companies.
Because -- I was -- for the person I brought out his goats I can tell you that there's gotta be some fixed or this thing's going broke soon you disagree that no I actually agree there needs to be effects.
And the fixed does not need to be that we turned into a voucher program and we say eighty year -- -- nine different companies figure out which -- you're gonna go to and by the way it won't cover because you gotta produce have a choice -- you have a choice you can either -- -- system or you can take the -- -- -- A lot of people like to this crisis as you a lot of people like to control there'll lies instead of -- over to the government.
Do you really believe David that there's any health insurance -- in America that's gonna take an 8000 dollar voucher if they're OK and disseminate at all whenever it's just leave we'll leave it that's -- point they're -- out there won't -- that's why -- Democrats like like -- agree with -- Because they you know they've done that cost analysis they realize that there is a market for a separate system -- if you -- why has gone I want sites I don't want the government to denied me the choice to choose it benefits I want.
David people -- regardless of their -- people can try to buy insurance in the public market right now you can you know after eight years nine years -- -- you know I doubt that David Coke is probably over 65 is using Medicare.
It's not like those things are not available you -- put yourself far to the left is senator Wyden and because he is going along with a -- Saturday night -- Clark Atlanta political pull back.
Which is has picked -- Republicans as long as a minute existence is a one example of where they have not -- we got to leave it that we always appreciate you coming on top -- thank you did thank you for being here.
