The Obama healthcare law and Medicare received considerable mention in last night's debate. The Affordable Care Act remains unpopular amongst a majority of American voters, therefore, the president's single legislative achievement has been rarely discussed on the campaign trail and at the Democrat National Convention. Unfortunately for Vice-President Biden, the debate required he go on record defending the law to the American public. At the same time, Vice-Presidential candidate Congressmen Ryan, a critic of the healthcare law had to defend his party's opposition to the new law. Betsy McCaughey, RN, is a health policy expert, defender of patient freedom and is perhaps the one persn who has the most experience reading the nearly 3000 page law. In this video, she explains who won the debate on this emotionally charged issue.
