Don’t trust Trump, GOP on health care
President Donald Trump’s column in USA TODAY on “Medicare for All” is an attempt to fool the entire nation and distract from the repeated sabotage of the Affordable Care Act that he and Republicans continue to push despite their constituents’ loud protests.
From refusing to defend protections for people with pre-existing conditions to expanding junk insurance plans that hurt consumers and don’t even offer coverage of basic services, Trump and the GOP have done everything in their power to undermine the ACA.
Access to affordable health care is a top concern for voters of both parties ahead of midterm elections, but congressional Republicans and Trump have only worked to undercut that access. Trump’s column isn’t about preserving health care; it’s just another desperate attempt at fear-mongering, as voters repeatedly voice their concerns.

Can someone point me to the article in the Constitution that guarantees health insurance as a right? Or the one that says the government will provide it for you just for turning a magic number? I’ve looked all through my copy and can’t seem to find it. John Tortorici
The free market, along with competition, will lower health care prices naturally. Anyone should understand that, and what a government health program would cost us all. If hospitals passed on all billing to our government, only God knows how much they would charge over what is truly needed. Universal health care would cripple America. Jim Bradley
So-called Medicare for All would result in less care for all. Democrats know that and they don’t care, at all. Raymond Kevin Halpern
