Medicaid is for everyone – New York Times

The war on the poor in America continues. As the Republicans work in secrecy to come up with a healthcare bill to serve someone other than the average American,  The New York Times ponders the destruction of Medicaid, high on the Republicans list. If ever there was a rich vs. poor issue, this is it. If this gets implemented as the Republicans and Trump want, it will have disastrous consequences for Jefferson and Clallam Counties. Both of them have high levels of both Medicaid and Medicare beneficiaries and our hospitals budgets are based on those reimbursals being available. It is the calm before the storm here.
