In New Op-Ed Trump Promises to Support Medicare

So much for going back to free market healthcare.

In a new op-ed in USA Today, while attacking a Democratic designed Medicare plan, President supported Medicare itself:
As a candidate, I promised that we would protect coverage for patients with pre-existing conditions and create new health care insurance options that would lower premiums. I have kept that promise...I also made a solemn promise to our great seniors to protect Medicare...Republicans believe that a Medicare program that was created for seniors and paid for by seniors their entire lives should always be protected and preserved
Trump just doesn't appreciate free markets and how they spur on creativity, allocate medical resources and provide incentive for greater productivity.

He does not appear to understand how government involvement in healthcare drives up prices and suffocates healthcare advances.

For him, it is about being the better central planner, when it is medical central planning that is the problem.
