Video-DNC Chair Wasserman-Schultz Gets Annihilated By Wolf Blitzer On CNN Over Medicare Lies

By Susan Duclos

Not only does Wolf Blitzer completely annihilate Debbie Wasserman-Schultz's talking points, but he calls her out every time she lies, which is every time she opened her mouth and ran it during the four minute clip.

Pigs must be flying these days because all of this happened on CNN.


 According to a  CMS.GOV,  (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services) press release on Monday, April 23, 2012- "The Medicare Trustees Report released today shows that the Hospital Insurance (HI) Trust Fund is expected to remain solvent until 2024, the same as last year’s estimate, but action is needed to secure its long-term future."

The video truly speaks for itself, but Guy Benson over at Townhall asks some very good questions about Democrats' solutions to the fact that Medicare is going bankrupt and the fact that they offer none. Not one. All they can say is nothing should change, despite the fact that if nothing changes, the whole system goes down. There is no saving it without reforming it.

Via Townhall:

Poor Debbie.  She's totally out-gunned and has nowhere to hide.  Her talking points are pitifully hollow and cannot withstand even basic questioning.  She stubbornly rejects the (correct) premise that the Romney/Ryan Medicare reform plan exempts everyone over the age of 54, and plays fast and loose with numbers -- conflating 55 and 65 on several occasions.  When she is brow-beaten into finally acknowledging -- if not admitting -- the truth around the 3:45 mark, she quickly realizes her "mistake" and reverts back into denialism.  When Blitzer asks her to specify exactly how current or soon-to-be seniors would be impacted by the GOP plan, she cannot.  Because they're not.  The Left is intellectually bankrupt on the very subject they claim will allow them to crush Mitt Romney in November.  They despise the bipartisan solution Republicans have offered, but they have no alternative of their own.  Dear Democrats, Medicare is slated to go bankrupt in 2024.  You say it's wrong for future seniors to be denied Medicare as it currently exists.  Okay, what's your plan, guys?  We know that your actions have already cut Medicare by $700 Billion to pay for part of Obamacare.  We also know that Obamacare establishes a government panel to ration care for the elderly.  And yet the 2024 deadline is still coming.  Again, what's your plan, Democrats?  Mr. President?  Anyone?  I confronted Wasserman Schutlz on this very question last summer, and she gave an incoherent and inaccurate response.  Also, here's video of Paul Ryan destroying DWS' talking point about seniors (read: future seniors) having to pay $6,000 more per year for healthcare...... 

Read the rest, there is another video and an update.
