Washington, DC - "We oppose efforts from Democrats to raid Medicare to fund socialism, robbing seniors of their benefits." ~ President Donald J. Trump
CONGRESSIONAL DEMOCRATS LIED ABOUT YOUR HEALTHCARE BEFORE: Democrats made false promises to sell Americans on Obamacare.
- Democrats told Americans if “you like your plan, you can keep it.”
- 4.7 million Americans saw their plans canceled in Obamacare’s first year.
- Democrats told Americans they could keep their doctor if they liked them.
- President Obama admitted families would have to “make choices” to keep their doctor.
- President Obama promised families that Obamacare would cut $2,500 in premiums.
- Average individual market premiums more than doubled from 2013 to 2017.
THEY ARE LYING NOW: Just like they did with Obamacare, Democrats will say anything to sell a radical Government takeover of your healthcare that they call “Medicare for All.”
- Democrats like Chuck Schumer are trying to hide that “Medicare for All” would end private insurance, claiming it is “not true.”
- Senator Schumer should read Bernie Sanders’ legislation, which states, “It shall be unlawful for— (1) a private health insurer to sell health insurance coverage that duplicates the benefits provided under this Act…”
- The House Democrats’ bill states, “It is unlawful for a private health insurer to sell health insurance coverage that duplicates the benefits provided under this Act.”
- Americans would have no choice in their own insurer and be forced onto Medicare.
- Democrats are claiming seniors would not lose benefits under “Medicare for All.”
- In reality, popular Medicare Advantage plans enjoyed by more than 20 million seniors would be outlawed under the Democrat plan.
- Congressional Democrats are telling American seniors “Medicare for All” is not a threat, yet their radical plan comes with a price tag that would jeopardize seniors’ benefits.
- Their plan rations healthcare with additional and stricter government price controls.
- Their plan requires large payment cuts to doctors and hospitals, leading to hospital closures, fewer doctors, and less care for seniors.
- This would not be the first time the Democrats abandoned our seniors, having cut Medicare spending by $800 billion.
GOVERNMENT TAKEOVER: Democrats are proposing radical Government takeover of healthcare that would devastate the future of our country.
- With an obscene $32 trillion in ten years price tag, even significant tax increases would not pay for the Congressional Democrats’ Government healthcare takeover.
- The Democrats’ radical Government takeover would destroy America’s healthcare system, put Washington bureaucrats in charge, and leave Americans with no real choice in coverage.
- Quality healthcare will plummet and wait times will skyrocket.
- Private competition would be eliminated.
- Medical innovation would be decimated, depriving patients of lifesaving cures.
- In a telling show of his lack of respect for American taxpayers, Senator Schumer did not even deny their plan would use taxpayer money to fund Government healthcare for illegal aliens.
