Trump won't fool us on health care

USA TODAY International Edition - - NEWS | OPINION -

Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump's re­cent col­umn at­tack­ing “Medi­care for All” is laugh­able. Here are the real facts: Since tak­ing of­fice, Trump has done ev­ery­thing in his power to strip health care from mil­lions of hard­work­ing Amer­i­can fam­i­lies and se­niors. Un­like Trump, I've ac­tu­ally worked in health care. I know what hap­pens when peo­ple go with­out care. Still to­day, I see can­cer pa­tients strug­gling to get the care they need. And when it comes to health pol­icy, that's the lens that my Demo­cratic col­leagues and I use. Sadly, for my Repub­li­can col­leagues, it's a lens of prof­its. They are wholly com­mit­ted to mak­ing the most money pos­si­ble off the sick and dy­ing. Trump's “think piece” is noth­ing more than a sad at­tempt to re­brand his and con­gres­sional Repub­li­cans' re­peated at­tempts to take health care away from Amer­i­cans. Rep. Robin Kelly, D-Ill.
