Lawrence O'Donnell pwns Republican Rep. John Culberson on health care

Is government-funded single-payer health care socialism? Apparently not, if it's Medicare, according to Republican Rep. John Culberson, who was raked over the coals by Lawrence O'Donnell tonight on Hardball:



"Is Medicare socialism? It's not socialism? Tell me why-- oh, because it's old, it's not socialism? Because it was done in the '60s? Tell me what is not socialism about Medicare. If Medicare is not socialism, why don't we just delete the 'over 65' part of Medicare and make it available to everyone? What's your argument against that?"
