Trump and His Billionaire Buddies Plot to Destroy Social Security, Medicare & Medicaid

Thom plus logo Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid are officially in the crosshairs of the Trump administration, and they intend to go after them this year. While hobnobbing with other billionaires in Davos, Switzerland, billionaire oligarch Donald Trump told them that sometime "before the end of the year" he and his administration would be cutting "entitlement programs." The billionaires, of course, thought that was just a fine thing. It's unlikely Trump will take these steps before the election on November 3rd, but even if he loses the election he could do significant damage to these programs after the election and before he leaves office on January 20.

Every single American, regardless of their age, has a multi-million dollar insurance policy against lifetime disability with Social Security, as well as it anchoring the retirement of tens of millions. Medicare and Medicaid keep Americans alive and healthy. But the billionaires don't care. They just want their taxes cut even further. This is probably the most under reported story in the media today. Pass it along...

You will never hear on Fox News that Trump plans on cutting Medicare and Social Security. For Tinhip, It was Trump that brought up cutting Social Security and Medicare not Thom. Hope that it affects you.
