Al Franken, superstar

Al Franken was a great satirist. Now he’s becoming a great senator. Watch him refute right-wing lies, these being spread by Diana Furchtgott-Roth from the Hudson Institute, about the effect that health-care reform proposals that Congress is considering will have on the rate of medical bankruptcies.

Bottom line: Medical bankruptcies in France, Switzerland, and Germany do not exist. Health-care reform will lower the rate of medical bankruptcies in the US, not raise it as the right-wing lying fear-mongers are claiming.
