Donald Trump’s ‘mandate’ – ‘Trump HHS Pick Said Medicare Phaseout Would Pass Next Summer’

Rep. Tom Price

National Popular Vote
Clinton – 64,826,234 – +2,332,814 – 48.1%
little Trump 62,493,420 – 46.4%

US House Of Representatives –
Republicans Lost 6 Seats.

US Senate
Republicans Lost 2 maybe 3 Seats.

‘Privatization of Medicare has been a central feature of Speaker of the House Paul Ryan’s budget proposal for years, and the House GOP has voted in favor of it multiple times’.

‘On November 17th, when TPM asked Price about his timeline for moving Medicare phaseout legislation in the next Congress, Price said he did not believe it would be in the first legislation Trump and the Republican Congress would tackle in the Spring’.

‘He said he expected it would come mid-year in the second phase of the budget reconciliation process’.

“I think that is probably in the second phase of reconciliation, which would have to be in the FY 18 budget resolution in the first 6-8 months,” Price told TPM’.

‘Price also noted that Republicans are eyeing using a tactic known as budget reconciliation to make the change. That process allows Republicans to pass bills with a simple majority in the U.S. Senate’.

  1. I now understand Susan Sarandon’s remarks on DT’s policies. I just hate the collateral damage, but I understand.
