Mr. Trump, If You Love Medicare, Improve It and Expand It to All

Can the U.S. afford to expand Medicare to all? The real question is, can we afford not to?

by Dr. Carol Paris

Well, now I’ve heard everything: Donald Trump wants to keep “the government” away from Medicare and protect seniors from attempts to improve it.

Huh?

Mr. President, take it from me—a newly-minted senior citizen and a doctor—you need to sit down and read the bill that single-payer supporters consider the gold standard for universal coverage: H.R. 676, the Expanded and Improved Medicare for All Act. Don’t worry, it’s a much easier read than the average commercial health insurance policy.

Here’s the deal: H.R. 676 would vastly upgrade Medicare for seniors by covering all medically necessary care, including dental, vision, hearing, mental health, and long-term care—none of which are currently covered. We learned very early on in medical school that, yes, the eyes, ears, mouth, and brain are all part of the human body and all those parts need care.

1. He doesn't read.

When are people, trying to reason with this evil fool, going to get a clue. It's the same as trying to negotiate with a terrorist. Or pissing in the wind. I'm amazed at how naive educated people are. I guess they are attempting to "get this on the record" but trust me he's not the least bit interested in knowing anything about it. He's very close to his sell by date. We'd all be better off to ignore or ridicule him. Even Fox is finally figuring out what a liability it is to signal boost his crap. Finally.

Thanks for the post, BeckyDem.

2. Good points!

Trump will be referenced in history as the ultimate con man, snake oil salesman president.
