Charles Krauthammer, Juan Williams Go Head-to-Head in Heated Medicare Debate
Who's winning the medicare debate when it comes to Obama vs. GOP hopeful Mitt Romney? That was the subject of an All-Star panel debate on tonight's Special Report, and it got panelists Charles Krauthammer and Juan Williams heated up.
Williams said there are a number of falsehoods being thrown about that are misleading the American people. "It requires people to buy into the falsehood that Obama stole money from Medicare to
fund Obama Care ... there is no money taken out of the existing Medicare pot!" said a feisty Williams.
Krauthammer fired back, saying that according to Medicare actuaries, if you implement the Obama cuts to Medicare, "one-sixth of our hospitals will go bust and they won't be available ... it's a huge, real cut and it will affect the elderly, and that money is placed in insuring the uninsured in Obama Care. That's a fact."
