Paul Ryan just announced that as part of repealing Obamacare he plans to phase out Medicare and replace it with private insurance for retirees.
I believe that part of why Trump was won the primary is that he didn’t go along with all the American Enterprise Institute about entitlements. Will he along with it now? If he does, that could do more damage to our country than just about anything else on the table (other than nuclear war or becoming a client state of Russia). It would also make him a one-term president. Let’s see what happens.
I think Trump is no genius and that he’ll mostly do what the Republican establishment tells him to do. I don’t know if he’s quite dumb enough to take a bite of this particular shitburger though.
