Center for Medicare Advocacy Executive Director Judith Stein, Paul N. Van de Water of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities and Peter Suderman, senior editor at Reason magazine and Reason.com join anchor Ray Suarez to discuss the future of the Medicare program.

We have to figure out what we’re going to do, honestly, about the fact that we’re living longer….And we actually can stay well if we allow Medicare and our health insurance programs to provide proper care for people, and try and marshal the overall health care costs without blaming the program which…has helped drive down the poverty of older people and people with disabilities.

— Judith Stein
