    WE THE WORKERS have health insurance taken out of our pay checks. Are we to lost this and take what ever the government will covers ? How much will be the co-pay for everyone? There are way to many on government welfare as it is and they get what they want or need and never pay for a thing. Will those on welfare have money taken out of their welfare to help pay for some of their health benefits ? I am a sr.cit. that has worked ever since I was 14 and always paid my medical bills my self until I got a job that took money out of my paychecks for insurance. I am tired of supporting the lazy ones on welfare . They are better off then us working families. We only have what we can afford and NOT
    taken out of our pay checks. The ones on welfare need to WORK to get every thing free!!There are jobs out there that the welfare people can do . They are not handicaped , just plain lazy and getting a better living then us workers and sr.cit. do on our pay checks. MORE THEN TIME THOSE ON WELFARE GET OFF THEIR FLUFFY CUSHIONS AND LEARN WHAT IT IS TO WORK FOR MONEY NOT HAVE IT JUST HANDED TO THEM EVERY MONTH.

      Medicare is not free, it never has been.
      For every working American we pay into Medicare, it comes wright out of our pay checks. We pay into this for 40+ years. Just like SS, we pay into it for 40+ years. These are for retirement benefits for the payers, not wealth to be given away to those who haven’t paid into these BENEFITS.
      If you receive SS retirement, they take your Medicare premium wright out of our SS retirement checks. This is after paying into Medicare for 40+ years. What the heck is going on!
      If your on SSD, they take the Medicare premium wright out of our checks. Before you get your payment.
      Side note: Medicare only pays up to 80% of our medical cost and they do NOT cover eye ware, or dentures.
      Plus you you must pay The other 20%.
      Medicare for all is a scam like ObamaCare.

      This will be our downfall.
      Medicare with private health insurance is a better choice.
      Keep Medicare for retirement and keep private health care to off set what Medicare dosen’t cover.
      It’s a better choice. It’s our FREEDIM to chose!

    I’d rather pay premiums in a free market than taxes to cover another impersonal government program that will ruin the best medical care system on the planet. I have visited many government agencies and none of them have ever treated me as nicely as my insurance agent always does.

    I am a retiree who worked for over 40 years and paid social security and expect the Government to support my medical needs for life. In order to cover what medicare does not I have a very good supplemental policy. The Government cannot match that plan. Medicare is running out of money, because the Government took fundsfrom medicare to cover non medical cost so it will be impossible to fund medicare for all!!!!!
    It is a proven fact that the government cannot successfully run any program under budget or at a profit. Competition is the best opportunity to get affordable health care.

    The government keeps cutting Medicare. So how are they going to put everyone on Medicare when they can’t afford the ones already on Medicare? It’s also a myth that if you don’t have insurance then you don’t get healthcare. I work for a non-profit county hospital. Over 50% of my patients have no insurance. They are hospitalized, get necessary test to properly diagnose, & get surgeries. Our ER waiting room is full of non-paying patients awaiting care. A lot of them could work but don’t. They have the latest smart phone, Starbucks in hand, & eat at our fast food restaurants or cafeterias.

    If we, the people of the United States support a Socialist Government, our existing Declaration of Independence and US Constitution, Bill of Rights, as well as individual state constitutions will become “mere, null and void historical documents”. Even our current emblem, our most visible standard, The Flag of The United States of America will be redesigned. Sure America, other American Flags such as “Don’t Tread On Me” for example, will be treaded upon and right now, we may not feel the difference, the national and global embarrassment with mental/emotional suffering, but we will and there will be plenty of this affecting each of us, our families, friends, our natural environment. The morale of our country will descend speedily and the issues used to distract us today will be used as mortar and quick-set concrete as the base footing for a house foundation in disrepair. As we look at and examine the details of the ‘big picture’, Think about this, unite and pray about this. Support Ambassador Haley.

    Medicare should only be available for those people who paid into it while working. It was never meant to be available for anyone else
    . It is crazy to even think about using Medicare funds for people that never paid into Medicare.

    I have friends who used to have Medicare, Medicaid, sis, disability benefits BEFORE Obama care. They were very much in favor of Obama and his care. However, now that they actually have the much sort after Obama care, their benefits were greatly cut. They are now so very sorry they voted for Obama.

      Obama Care turned out to be the distroyer of the middle class.
      That was the plan.
      It was a slush fund and nothing more. What did Obama do with all that money.
      It most certainly didn’t reduce the cost of health insurance.
      We didn’t get to keep our Doctors or our private health insurance.
      I didn’t VOTE for this, nor did I vote for Obama.

    We all must be at the polls and vote for President Trump in 2020. If the democrats win, there are no limits to the horrors they will do to us all. They will stop all government money going out, including social security. All seniors would have nothing to buy food or anything. Then we have money going to all the illegal aliens. They will stop that and what will happen then? Over a million refugees with no food. It won’t be safe from them anywhere we go .VOTE REPUBLICAN OR WE ARE FINISHED IN ALL WAYS !!!

      Beware of Democrat’s changing party’s.
      Beware of the Green party.
      Beware of name changes.
      We must vote them out of all local, and State levels.
      That includes Schools and collages.

    First, I am not a senior citizen at this point. I will be someday, obviously. So many senior citizens and retirees worked very hard all their lives and paid into this system. They have more than earned their free health care for the remainder of their lives. American seniors should not be ever expected to pay a cent for their health care. Nor do I believe the people who have served and sacrificed for their country should either. They are the ones who will be hurt most of all if we go to Medicare for all. People who have never worked who may not even be here legally will have the same health benefits as those who have worked all their lives- that is grossly unfair. Medicare for all will hurt the quality of health care we receive now. The very wealthy will get great health care, every one else will get mediocre health care. This how you begin to control a nation, control their health care.
    Thank you for all you do Niki. I hope you will one day run for president- you would undoubtedly win❤️

      Isn’t it enough we paid into Medicare for 40+ years.
      Then why are we paying a monthly MEDICARE PREMIUM.

    Medicare fund has been raided. As has social security. People who never work, infants who have had no working family members, scammers on disability that never held a job. The disability and SSI Medicare system is a mess. Worked my first job at 11 at ice cream stand now retired RN, still pay co pays and premiums have no dental vision or hearing coverage so that’s out of pocket. If I were on welfare having not been productive, all would be covered. Go figure!
