I just want to quote this comment on Daily Kos from "N in Seattle" (and of course the whole post and all comments are worth reading.)
There is fraud by Medicare providers. It’s almost entirely in Florida, Texas, and California. Extensive as it is, it’s not remotely close to $845 billion … I’d be surprised if it’s even 1% of that figure.

Think of it this way — if there was truly $845 billion in fraud, that would amount to almost $20,000 in fraudulent reimbursements per Medicare beneficiary. (There are about 44 million beneficiaries.)

Unreal!!! Absolutely sickening, and depressing to say the least.
Our rights and privileges are being chiseled away by this greedy heartless pos.

You are so right, TomCat, “If ever there was an absolutely ridiculous question, here it is.” It is a question that should never be asked, and by asking it in his most idiotic proposal to date, Drumpf is showing his desperation at being cornered from all possible sides and his inability to halt the further degradation of both his faculties and his ratings.

I think it would be a mistake if Americans, and Democrats in Congress specifically, to take this proposal very seriously. It is clearly intended to divert them from what is going on in the real world and behind the closed doors of the White House. Ridicule his budget, then quickly throw it in the bin and look what he and the GOP are really up to, and continue with making and propagating solid plans like the New Green Deal.

Truly despicable. I heard them mention that the low class bas*ard was thinking of sizable reduction for Medicare and Medicaid for his stinking wall last evening on the news.
He can take that thought and shove it up his flipping a*s.
May he rot in he*l for all of his evil thoughts and actions.
Thanks TomCat

The Wall vs Medicare
Trump says that the wall is necessary to keep murders, rapists and drugs out of the country. He cites one off examples of undocumented persons killing a police officer or another citizen, but ignores the millions that have simply come to work, contribute to society, and never had any problems with the law. For this “protection”, taxpayers will have to pay $8.7 billion and likely more if Trump has his way.

To help pay for the unnecessary vanity wall, Trump will cut $845 billion from Medicare, that’s more than the initial $8.7 billion wall request. By 2030 according to one source, there will be 61 million baby boomers and 9 million others born prior to the baby boomer generation who will have reduced incomes and more health issues. There will be dwindling healthcare money and a greater population in need of care.

So with the numbers of people hurt by Trump and Republicans, perhaps we should put walls around them so that they cannot continue to rape and pillage the country. Those walls . . . they’re called prisons!

To me, the greater good is in Medicare, hands down!

Resist, Persist, Remove!!!

Lock HIM up!!!

If you keep boiling all of this mucky-muck down it becomes obvious that the wealthy elite (1 example: tax cuts for the highest incomes) are desperate to survive and are completely willing to trample all over the lesser paid and not be too concerned with all the injustices, lack of care, absence of decency, moral depravity, and compassion for life, - because the kind of person who loves money cares NOT for humanity. As the saying goes; you can't be loyal to two. Money -or- Others? It doesn't take a genius to see what Trump-icans policies are going. It's ALL about saving the rich, and gather everything for the rich, and doing all things in the rich. His wall is the perfect symbol of how he sees those who he judges not worthy of a chance at living a reasonable life. In his mind, only HE is worthy, and those who are loyal to HIM have his favor. The rest of humanity can eat dirt. {he'd deny this, but, who believes his lies now?}

The SF Chronicle had an article that said 50% of all homeless are over 50, and it's only expected to get worse. People work their whole lives, then disaster hits. It doesn't have to be anything big, just a lot of little things all at once. Sometimes Medicare is the only way they get any medical help. Same with social security. We are a disgrace as a nation; we don't take care of our elderly unless they have money, and Agent Orange is only too ready to make it worse.
