Donald Trump did not campaign on a promise to destroy Medicare. In fact, he promised not to touch Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. But now that the Republicans are in charge of the White House, the Senate, and the House of Representatives, destroying Medicare appears to be on the top of their agenda.
This is classic bait and switch. Trump and his fellow Republicans promised to repeal Obamacare. Now, with the election in the rear-view mirror, House Speaker Paul Ryan has wasted no time in announcing his plan to end Medicare.
