Medicare Is Over the Hill

As Medicare turned 53 last week, the potential Democratic presidential candidates celebrated the occasion … on Twitter. The group reflected on the program’s mission from its inception in 1965 and warned that President Trump is seeking to cut important Medicare benefits.

It appears Medicare’s birthday made health care top of mind for Trump’s potential 2020 challengers, with terms such as “health care,” “Medicare,” “child care” and “veteran care” among the most popular this past week.

While these potential presidential candidates focused on how the current state of health care is affecting the country, President Trump’s tweets tell a much different story.
