It sounds like they need to really tighten up eligibility.

It's well known. This has been in the open for a while. The city spends nearly a third of it's budget on healthcare.
It's insane because there's also a substantial amount of fraud going on. As an NYC/NYS taxpayer it's infuriating.

One of the things that Trumpcare was supposed to do was scale down Medicaid. Given the vast amounts of fraud in that system, I considered that a good thing.

LOL.

You're right of course. Trump has been consistently blocked by the Congress and the courts.

He probably can't pass legislation because he does not work in the legislative branch...

If that were true no president would ever get anything done. No, rather he can't pass any legislation because when all is said and done he lacks leadership and true dealmaking skill to get his anyone on board let alone his own party which has majority. He is completely blowing his golden opportunity that fell into his lap because he's incompetent

If "progressives" completely had their way we'd all be on Medicaid, except for a few 1%ers of course. The difference between ACA and Medicaid will eventually be indistinguishable from one another.

What's wrong with that? All old people get medicare. Just expand this to the rest of the population.
