Rep. Anthony Weiner challenges Republicans to eliminate government healthcare

HA, this is pretty funny politically posturing.  New York Representative Anythony Weiner puts an amendment forward to eliminate the government-run, single payer health care option known as Medicare.  On the 44th anniversary of it’s passing no less.
