US Health reform debate: confusion reigns

An interesting insight into the US Health reform debate from Political Wire:

American voters are not the only ones confused about health care reform.

On MSNBC, Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) tried to explain to CNBC anchor Maria Bartiromo that there already is government-managed health care in the United States -- the Medicare system created for Americans 65 years and older. He claimed patients using it are very satisfied.

Said Bartiromo: "How come you don't use it? You don't have it. How come you don't have it?"

Weiner: "Because I'm not 65."

Bartiromo: "Yeah... c'mon!"

Here's the must-see clip:
