Maria Bartiromo Presses 44-Year-Old Congressman: "If Medicare Is So Good, Why Aren't You On It?"

Republican ignorance on the subject of Medicare appears to know no bounds. We have protesters demanding that the government keep their "hands off" Medicare, as if Medicare is not government run.

Here, Maria Bartiromo berates Weiner with the argument, "How come you don't use it [Medicare]? You don't have it. How come you don't have it?"

Weiner is 44 years old. When he points this out to her, she replies, "Yeah... c'mon!"

The Republican talking points on this subject are almost fact free, so why do the polls show that their ignorance based arguments are proving effective?
