Trump Breaking News Network – NYT predicts Medicare reform fight in 2017, based on … Democrats?.
BY ED MORRISSEY.
How likely will a fight to restructure Medicare from its single-payer model to a premium-support system take place in 2017? The New York Times’ Robert Pear predicts a showdown between Paul Ryan and Nancy Pelosi almost as soon as the seats in the House of Representatives fill up after the new year, based on what House Republicans are supposedly promising. There’s only one thing missing from Pear’s report, however:
Donald J. Trump once declared that campaigning for “substantial” changes to Medicare would be a political death wish.
But with Election Day behind them, emboldened House Republicans say they will move forward on a years-old effort to shift Medicare away from its open-ended commitment to pay for medical services and toward a fixed government contribution for each beneficiary.
