close tovideo Democrats spread about Medicare-for-all as a house-crafts-budget for the coming year

The “New York Times” editorial—known for his criticism of President Trump—probably surprised some readers on Monday, after he published an editorial with the title “Not All Medicare cuts Are Bad.”

The editorial has also claimed on some of Trump’s proposals, does not agree that the Democrats, including some running for President-are currently busy “indiscriminate attacks” on Trumpf-2020-budget, but “ignoring some good ideas.”

Trump introduced a budget that calls for deep cuts in Medicare. The administration insisted that the spending cuts will cost seniors, but makes better use of the taxpayer and contributes to the reduction in Medicare spending due to a reduction in prescription drug.

As already mentioned in White house documents, the budget 845 billion in requests for $in total, or gross, expenditure reductions to Medicare over 10 years, mainly by cutting future payments to hospitals and other service providers.

The Times wrote, “When Americans with Medicare, a doctor’s office visit, the Federal government pays a higher fee if the office happens to be in the possession of a hospital. This bonus payment serves no obvious purpose. A federal advisory board created to monitor Medicare spending called for its elimination. And this month, the Trump administration, proposed the amendment in the year 2020 budget, together with some of the other measures recommended, to reduce the of impartial experts, the payments to the service providers, without referring directly to the cost or availability of care.”

The times “editorial Board wrote that Trump promises of the election, not Medicare cut non-answer was””, not the budget proposal itself. It went on to say “that the Democrats are debating the details.”
