Your AMAC team attended the signing of President Trump’s Executive Order on Protecting and Improving Medicare for our Nation’s Seniors in The Villages, Florida. AMAC member Corey Spangler sat on the stage with the President and he called upon her to share her Medicare experiences with the audience.

The Executive Order puts patients in control of their health care by providing transparency and more choices. The President will take a proactive approach to eliminating waste, fraud and abuse within the Medicare program by utilizing state-of-the art technologies and software. The Executive Order advances policies that will streamline the approval of therapies while reducing obstacles to improved patient care. Patients will be empowered by increased access to telehealth and new treatments as well as experiencing more time spent with health care providers.

President Trump recognized that America’s seniors are happy with Medicare and pledged to strengthen the program to ensure its availability for years to come. The President also called out the Democrats’ so-called “Medicare for All” scheme as a threat to end the Medicare program as we know it, noting that it would eliminate choice for America’s seniors. The President assured seniors that he intends to make Medicare competitive and more comprehensive so it may provide the best possible care for beneficiaries.

this impeachment show is very unuseful and costing very much money it has been going way to long, in my opinion these member of congress are very overpayed and have way to much vacation time considering what they do for our country.

The house is so petty. They have no chance to win the election with the candidates running so they are trying to unscrupulously try to take him down before the election. I am amazed at how well he has withstood their vicious attacks since before and after he has taken office. May their constituents be so disgusted with their behavior and embarrassed by their viciousness.

The text of this order is so obtuse and loaded with Orwellian weasel words that it is impossible to know whether the order actually improves or limits Medicare benefits.

AMAC should provide a thorough section-by -section analysis of this order before approving it. We look forward to it. Thanks.

Very refreshing to see President Trump be proactive for our Citizens that love America, unlike elected & long-term bureaucrats abusing , taking, and destroying from within, for their own personal, financial, power gain.
God Bless President Donald Trump.

I too fear a future loss of Medicare I am happy with the care that I get now. I hope Trumps order will secure Medicare. but I think it should be given only to those who have paid into it

Yeah, there are too many loopholes being used in fraudulent claims and in today’s time period, everyone who works on the books pays into Medicare, but that fund is also being used by states expanding the Medicaid section to cover those who haven’t contribute anything–a pre-Medicare-for-all.

Under a Medicare-for-All plan Bernie Sanders and other Dem contenders advocate, Bernie himself would never have received two stints within a day of his heart attack. In countries with such health coverage, his average wait time would have been 39 days to as much as 3 months. He likely would have died while waiting his turn. The immediate treatment and necessary surgery within 24 hours is what he and other Democrat candidates for president want to do away with — for the rest of us. They don’t have a clue how deluded they are.

Have you noticed, Bernie didn’t go to his paradise, Venezuela, for treatment?
Hmm. I wonder why??

Speaking about that care he received I would really like to know how exactly the procedure is going to be paid. Did he use his paid for by the taxpayers’ special elected officials healthcare or did he use his Medicare insurance and did he pay any out of pocket expenses?

From what I was told when I was still working at age 65 and had private insurance, my private insurance would pay the majority of the medical expenses and Medicare would pick up the difference. Therefore, Bernie’s tax payer insurance paid the majority of medical expenses and Medicare picked up the difference. BTW: I chose not to take Medicare while I was working. I finally retired in November 2019 and will be 67 in February. I am now on Medicare and it will take me a while to get used to it.

The democrats will no doubt exclude themselves or carve out some sort of sweetheart deal for themselves just like they did with Obama Care. They got Obama to do some razzle dazzle and have them each declared a “small business” with less than 50 employees so they could get subsidies ?

I’m so glad President Trump signed the executive order for Medicare for seniors in our country, and we must keep President Trump in office because if the Democrats take over the presidency, they will destroy our Medicare system as it exists for seniors. They do not care what happens to the elderly and they never have cared. After all, I believe it was President Lyndon Johnson who stole all of that money from our Medicare fund and never returned it to the Medicare fund…DEMOCRAT!!!

President Obama & Mrs Obama stole from Social Security to create Obama care that they couldn’t get right. Computer system from Mrs Obama’s college classmate that didn’t work cost millions.
