Serial health care misinformer McCaughey: "Obama sentences seniors to less care and shorter lives with Berwick appointment"

Blog ››› ››› MEDIA MATTERS STAFF

In a July 7 tweet, serial health care misinformer Betsy McCaughey wrote, "Obama sentences seniors to less care and shorter lives with Berwick appointment." McCaughey joins other right-wing media figures who have rehashed tired attacks against Berwick after President Obama announced his intention to install him as head of the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services through a recess appointment.

Media Matters has extensively documented McCaughey's pattern of smears, falsehoods and distortions about Democrats and health care. Last month, McCaughey took to the pages of the New York Post to smear "radical" "ideologue" Berwick.
