PolitiFact Florida: Rep. Allen West trots out Medicare talking points

Republican U.S. Rep. Allen West pulled out some familiar talking points on the 2010 health care law in a recent Fox News interview.

It was Democrats who cut $500 billion from Medicare, he said. An unelected board will make decisions about health care for seniors and all Americans, he said.

Similar statements by Republican politicians have earned rulings from Half True to False.

But in the world of PolitiFact, specific word choice matters.

How do West's words hold up?

Tally Folly

Allen West and the truth parted ways a long time ago.
His statements continually serve only to facilitate his own political gain.
