Their opposition didn’t stop there; they have worked tirelessly for decades to get rid of Medicare & Medicaid as if they were some sort of plague. This year, in their effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act, they also introduce provisions to chip away at Medicare & Medicaid. Imagine for a moment there was no Democrat. For historical purpose, it’s worth mentioning that Republicans in Washington have aggressively tried for the past three decades to “privatize” social security; translation, they want to get rid of that safety net elderly expect when they are no longer able to work. I should also mention that “social security benefits”, Medicare and Medicaid were all introduced and passed as law by the three Democrat Presidents mentioned earlier in this article (FDR, Harry Truman & Lyndon Johnson). Imagine for a moment there was no Democrat.
