    How is this stealing from the poor to give to the rich?

    "Trump wants to “reduce wasteful spending” on Medicare by expanding the list of treatments that require prior authorization before the procedure can be done and putting medical providers on notice who charge more than others. The administration argues these cost savings will help ensure Medicare can last for many years to come, but some argue it will result in people who need treatment having it delayed or not receiving it because of extra paperwork and hurdles."

    Of course. Trump can do no wrong. Silly me.
    "The greatest political scandal in American history is being met with denial and obstruction from Republicans, whose party once championed the rule of law."

    That's a big reason I voted the way I did.

    Because its going to mean that poor folks who paid for medicare their whole working lives.. will now have to get pre authorization.. which means that treatment that's needed will get delayed or not receive it because of the extra paperwork and hurdles...

    So that wealthy people.. like yourself could have a tax cut.. And since you are rich... you likely won't have to worry about the medicare hurdles because you can either pay privately or use your secondary..

    The reason that Trump is doing this.. is solely to mitigate the large increases in deficit spending he is asking for and the increase in the deficit from the tax cuts.
    So we should put you down as supporting putting GPS trackers in everyone to "save lives"?
