Ready for #WashingtonWasteWednesday ? Today we cover the rising cost of healthcare. The Socialist Democrats' Medicare-for-All would ruin the system & throw 150 million people off their private insurance. The solution to the crisis of healthcare isn't more government, it’s LESS.

South Bend mayor and Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg released a new ad that will air in Iowa focused on his "Medicare for all who want it" proposal.

Medicare Part B Premiums Climb for 2020

The standard monthly premium for enrollees will be $144.60 in 2020, almost $10 a month more than the current $135.50, according to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, which recently released the figures.

Listen to @SecAzar  explain the realities of how Medicare for All would really be Medicare for None and discuss what the @realDonaldTrump  administration is doing to provide affordable, patient-centric health care options to all Americans.

Thank you @SenCapito  and @KlobucharOffice  for introducing S.2842 to expand access to critical #cardiac  and pulmonary rehab programs in Medicare! You are helping to bridge the gap between referrals and access to care for patients in need.

"In sum, the Medicare'>Warren Medicare for All plan is not really a financing plan: It relies on financing sources that don't exist and denies the costs that do."

Medicare reporting, once a staple of health care journalism, has largely disappeared from health and political beats. Here's @Trudy_Lieberman  on how seniors are paying the price.

Thanks for all the well wishes. I'm feeling good. I'm fortunate to have good health care and great doctors and nurses helping me to recover. None of us know when a medical emergency might affect us. And no one should fear going bankrupt if it occurs. Medicare for All!

Under my Administration, Medicare Advantage premiums next year will be their lowest in the last 13 years. We are providing GREAT healthcare to our Seniors. We cannot let the radical socialists take that away through Medicare for All!

Today at The Villages in Florida, it was my great honor to sign an Executive Order on protecting and improving Medicare for our Nation’s Seniors. Today’s action is only the latest of many important steps we are taking to dramatically improve healthcare for the American People!

REPUBLICANS IN THE SENATE VOTED THIS WEEK TO CUT MEDICARE AND MEDICAID IN HALF The GOP just keeps coming for your health care again and again and again and again. And this time, they want to do it while extending President@realDonaldTrump ’s tax cuts for the wealthiest few. No

All Republicans support people with pre-existing conditions, and if they don’t, they will after I speak to them. I am in total support. Also, Democrats will destroy your Medicare, and I will keep it healthy and well!

Trump finally submitted a budget (a month late). Let's take a look, shall we? $8 billion for a wall Congress rejected. $840 billion in cuts to Medicare. Trillion dollar deficits for the next four years. You know what, Mr. President, keep your budget. We’ll take it from here.

I couldn’t have framed the election better than McConnell did this week. He says if GOP wins they will: a. try again to repeal ACA and replace it w nothing b. cut Social Security and Medicare to pay for their corporate tax cut c. provide no check on Trump Got it, America?

As a CEO, Rick Scott oversaw a multi-billion dollar Medicare fraud - the biggest in American history resulting in 14 felonies and a $1.7 billion fine. What makes you think that as Governor, he wouldn’t steal a few thousand votes by shutting down the count?

Make no mistake: After they borrow $1.5 trillion to pass a windfall tax break for corporations and the rich, Trump, Ryan, and McConnell will seek cuts to Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security to pay it back.
