FRANKS: Reader wants Democrat

A replacement for Trent Frank is looming. If you’re a person that is concerned with this country, I strongly urge you to select a Democrat to replace him.

The only bill that has passed since the election of Trump will put 13 million Americans out the door of health care. It takes $25 billion from Medicare. This was not a tax bill, it was a tax scam. Even the Congressional Budget Office stated that cutting taxes will not increase employment.

The Democrats are pushing for Medicare for all. By raising Medicare tax on 100 percent of income this is possible. In France, which is rated number one in health care in the world, it costs an average of $4,500 per year. In America it costs $10,000 per year and we’re 37th on the world list.

Soon the Republicans will be meeting to make a budget. Paul Ryan has already stated he wants to cut Social Security and Medicare to pay for the tax cuts.
