US- Prez. Trump now says he's open to entitlement cuts, including Medicare

I can remember a time when no politician would dare to mess with Social Security, Medicare or anything to do with seniors. The generation before me voted. When a politician went anywhere near their livelihood, they would go to their offices, they would surround their cars, they would make it miserable for any politician who dared mess with Social Security. Those days are gone. Those seniors are now all dead.
Now I’m a senior and NO ONE from my generation is going to Congress to defend Social Security. It is fair game for those Republicans, including our obnoxious President Donald Trump, to just take it all away and leave us with nothing to live on. The Medicare system that I am now on and depend on for my medicines and my medical care are in danger of being taken away.
My generation is made up of wimpy cowards who can’t wait to roll over and play dead. They are actually supporting those Republicans who never question spending money so that our military can take over other people’s countries and create US puppet governments, but when it comes to providing health care to those in this country, who need it, we are told “we can’t afford it.” According to CNN:

“Asked by CNBC at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, whether entitlements would ever be on his plate, Trump responded, "At some point they will be."
"We have tremendous growth. We're going to have tremendous growth. This next year I -- it'll be toward the end of the year. The growth is going to be incredible. And at the right time, we will take a look at that," he added.
Asked by CNBC whether he was willing "to do some of the things that you said you wouldn't do in the past, though, in terms of Medicare," Trump said: "We're going look."

So there we are. There is no security in this country for those at the bottom of the economy who are not wealthy enough to pay for their own medical needs. And we live in the most expensive country in the world for medical needs.
In my life time, no president has been as willing as Trump to stab his own citizens in the back. And all this time there are those brainless working class people who are so dumb and witless that they actually support this man.
Trump is on trial for using foreign aid for his own personal ambitions. His real crimes are against working people, working poor, seniors and anyone who is at a vulnerable place in their lives. The poor in Cuba can go to a doctor when they are sick. Not so in this country. Trump and his party have stabbed the poor, working poor and those too old to work—in the back. That is his REAL CRIME. That is the one crime he is not on trial for. That is because nearly all of the US Congress just doesn’t give a damn about promises made to the generation they are now ripping off!
