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.
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.
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.
