David Sirota vs Lying, Liars On Fox News



I think Sirota did a good job on the show, in the limited time he had, and considering who he was on with. But he really missed a chance to swat down one of their lies. Specifically when they kept saying that national health care is going to cost a lot of money. The reality is, and I am sure David knows this already although I don't know why he didn't mention it, is that we are paying the most per capita of any country on the planet. Currently it is over 6k per year and yet we are 37th in the world when it comes to health indicators. Think about that for a moment. WE already are paying too much for health care and not getting anything for it.

Sirota was correct about administrative costs and negotiating drug prices as well but ,like I said, he really missed his chance.
