Why isn't there any talk of cutting Medicaid. Our country spends more for welfare medical costs that it does for retiree medical. Seems as if Medicaid should be the first thing to go.
I disagree. I have a friend that was in upper management and was terminated on some bogus reason because he had prostate cancer and leukemia. There was talk of a bone marrow transplant. He literally is too sick to work. Should we take away his Medicaid? I don't think so. I'm trying to get on Washington's website to see the 2020 budget proposal, but there isn't much information. No surprise there. I did see the cuts to social security, medicaid, and medicare proposed for 2019 on the web site last year. Trump is not going to advertise these cuts on the campaign trail. It's up to the "enemy of the people" to keep reporting on it.

So do those of us who have worked since we were teenagers get a refund? Itís OUR money thatís been funding S.S our hard earned taxes. Anyone who feels this is okay needs a brain transplant.

Trump says he may begin cutting Social Security and Medicare if he wins in 2020

It's all part of Trump's operating principles.
To sow chaos and destruction in all aspects of social, political, economic and financial institutions, both domestically and internationally.

After reading all ten pages of this thread, it looks like his strategy is working according to his plan.
Nothing here but chaos and partisan disagreement. Even though Social Security and Medicare affect us all equally.

Trump absolutely didn't say any of that. This topic was based on fake news by the OP. There's your issue. You really didn't see anything but what you wanted to see.

As for the rest, this topic speaks for itself. The MSM tells you "Orange Man Bad" and you, on queue "Orange Man Bad".

And his lemming base just eat it up thinking this type of trump strategy will make America great again, wait till they have a catastrophic illness or they want their social security and its not there, they will then again blame Democrats for their loss.

IT is true that the OP used a misleading headline to garner interest in this thread.

But do you have any comments related to the articles cited?

Trump didn't say any such thing. Why you guys lie so much is beyond me. Oh wait, I forgot that was an ancient ploy from the democrat's playbook. Really lame.
