Weiner Provides "Viewer's Guide" To Republican Health Debate Falsehoods

During the health reform repeal debate in the House, Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) took the Republicans to task for continuing to peddle their favorite canards, including talk of “death panels,” a “government takeover” and “socialized medicine.” He also noted that the Republicans are promising future reforms already included in the very bill they seek to repeal. Weiner once again reminded the country that the Republicans are a “wholly owned subsidiary of the insurance industry.”

WEINER: "You know, I want to just advise people watching at home playing that now-popular drinking game of you take a shot every time Republicans say something that's not true, please assign a designated driver; this is going to be be a long afternoon."
