FreedomWorks Statement in Response to Trump Plan to Protect Americans from Socialist Medicare for All
WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to President Trump’s newly announced plan to protect Americans from socialized healthcare in the form of Medicare for All by strengthening Medicare Advantage, a private program for seniors that covers nearly 22 million Americans, Jason Pye, FreedomWorks Vice President of Legislative Affairs, commented:
"Today, President Trump announced a bold executive order to protect American seniors from the Democrats’ socialist plot to eliminate private health coverage. In direct response to progressive calls for ‘Medicare for All,’ the Trump administration has finally decided to stop pulling their punches, and begin to play real hardball."
"Strengthening Medicare Advantage and expanding its range of services supports free market principles including competition and individual choice. It is fantastic to see the free market principles being espoused by the White House actually cemented in policy.
“We will join with President Trump in the fight against the nationalization of our healthcare industry."
