Video: Wasserman Schultz talks Medicare on Face the Nation

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz appeared on Face The Nation today where the hot topic continues to be Medicare. Before she went on, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor accused Democrats of twisting the issue for political gain.

"Any time you have one side demagoguing and frankly accusing the other side in a way that's not factual of trying to reform the program, certainly that's going to influence an electorate," he said. "But listen, as far as Medicare is concerned, you know, there's a simple choice here: Either we're going to save the program or you let it go bankrupt."

Wasserman Schultz countered, "Coming from the Majority Leader, who was part of the architect of the 2010 elections focusing on scaring seniors about what Democrats were doing with Medicare, he would know," she said.
