Trumpocalypse 8: “Young, healthy and wealthy people may do quite well under this vision of health care reform,” said Larry Levitt, a senior vice president at the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation. “But the people who are older and poorer and sicker could do a lot worse.”

Donald Trump promised, as a candidate to leave entitlements alone.

Then he nominated for Health and Human Services secretary "Dr" Tom Price.

"Dr." Tom, currently a congressman, wants to: privatize Medicare, to give seniors a fixed amount of money to purchase insurance with, and reduce federal controls on how states spend money the government gives them for Medicare and Medicaid.

Vouchers were a pet project for Romney/Ryan in 2012. A nonpartisan study of their proposal found that more than half of all seniors would suffer increased health care costs under that plan. The highest costs would have been about $6,000 more per year.

Sorry, Bob 4 Trump!!

It's the end of the world as we know it...
Possibly the end of democracy.
Did you hear about the report the Harvard professor did on the changing views towards democracy and how people don't seem to think we need it anymore?
