First of all, I don't believe in insuring all Americans at the taxpayers' expense. There are better ways to make insurance more affordable for everyone. Form a bipartisan task force to study this, instead of throwing money at the problem.

Second, Medicare does need "cleaning up", but it should be to clean up the FRAUD. It is OUTRAGEOUS to eliminate benefits for older Americans. These "older" Americans are the backbone of our country - the ones who fought to give us the opportunities we have today. They sacrificed and saved to build their futures, with little help from the government. They EARNED the right to receive medical benefits.

Define "wealthier" beneficiaries.

Where are the details on the $634B? How did they arrive at that number?

This Administration cannot continue to spend money like water. It will break the United States of America.
