  1. he's lying = his lips are moving

  2. He has been holding out on all policies knowing he would face impeachment. Anyone who believes this crap deserves another four years of this maniac. I do feel very badly for the rest of Americans, however.

  3. Aca si no te mata la enfermedad te matan los costos! Es inaccesible. EL PEOR SISTEMA DE SALUD PARA LA CLASE MEDIA!

  4. Why did bill Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama collectively take out close to 5 trillion dollars out of Medicare?

  5. This is pretty much the same plan that Paul Ryan of Wisconsin spent years trying to slime into law. It is the first big step toward Ryan's lifetime goal of privatizing the Medicare system

    Read Section Three!

    Section 3: Providing More Plan Choices to Seniors. (a) Within 1 year of the date of this order, the Secretary shall propose a regulation and implement other administrative actions to enable the Medicare program to provide beneficiaries with more diverse and affordable plan choices. The proposed actions shall:

    (i) encourage innovative MA benefit structures and plan designs, including through changes in regulations and guidance that reduce barriers to obtaining Medicare Medical Savings Accounts and that promote innovations in supplemental benefits and telehealth services;

    (ii) include a payment model that adjusts supplemental MA benefits to allow Medicare beneficiaries to share more directly in the savings from the program, including through cash or monetary rebates, thus creating more incentives to seek high-value care; and

    (iii) ensure that, to the extent permitted by law, FFS Medicare is not advantaged or promoted over MA with respect to its administration.

    (b) The Secretary, in consultation with the Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers, shall submit to the President, through the Assistants to the President for Domestic and Economic Policy, a report within 180 days from the date of this order that identifies approaches to modify Medicare FFS payments to more closely reflect the prices paid for services in MA and the commercial insurance market, to encourage more robust price competition, and otherwise to inject market pricing into Medicare FFS reimbursement.


  6. I don't know how many Executive Orders President Trump has signed because I have only heard of a few unlike Obama who used them to circumvent Congress and thereby evade oversight.

  7. Into the hands of corp greed. No doubt ruined forever. Will need 160 billion a day bail outs like his economy eventually.

  8. CORPORATE HELP. It EXPANDS private medicare plans, allowing more companies to get involved. Nothing more. He's such a liar. Claiming dems want to eliminate private healthcare. He's a criminal and embarrassment to U.S. Plus he did it at a retirement village full of his supporters so it looks like he's working instead of watching faux and friends and tweeting all day or playing golf for 340 million tax dollars.

  9. Right, after doing everything in rethugs power to remove pre=existing conditions and completely dismantling healthcare. Small print is probably very destructive and self serving since he promised rethug senators if he's re-elected he will end SS and medicare.

  10. This executive order is simply an attempt at distraction. It is a hollow gesture with malevolent intention.

  11. This is the same dip…. Who said in his second term he will disassemble Medicare an Medicaid an enjoy it. The white hairs better wake up and smell
    This for what it is snake oil pure and simple.

  12. How you fix something you broke?

  13. That lady on the left looks like the one that shot Selena's 🤣

  14. Medicare for all.
    After you're impeached.

  15. Don't worry, everyone. If a new president wants to declare Medicare For All, they can undo this with ease. It's how it works.

    This dude is just trying to draw your attention away from his treason accusations. :3

  16. Interesting how "medicare for all" (ie universal healthcare) works better for every country in the developed world than the US healthcare system. Listening to this clown talk about healthcare is hilarious. Morocco has a higher ranked healthcare system than the US, according to the WHO.

  17. LOOK! I'm writing a comment in the YouTube Comments, to make sure there is a comment for you to read. Thank me for doing it, otherwise, you wouldn't have any comments to read? I'm so proud of myself, and this comment, is perfect!. – lol.

  18. Lies lies and more lies. He literally cannot tell the truth.

  19. Red meat for the base. If it was so important too Trump, why do it now?

  20. Trump wants to make Hot Pockets available by prescription.

  21. That's not true- Bernie wants Medicare for everyone

  22. So basically it's propaganda.. no real changes just a signature..???? What???

  23. This not going thru Congress means it is not worth the paper it's signed on. The scam is on.

  24. The next president should sign an executive order to imprison this corrupt orange dude.

  25. That was an SNL skit right? Who does he think he is fooling?

  26. He manages to make this into a campaign rally. He is still a reality television show star. He thinks the office of the president allows him the opportunity to make his show broadcasted nationwide.

  27. It doesn't matter how many executive orders you sign…you're still getting impeached fatty.

  28. It would be nice to know from a real person what he just did….we all know everything out of his mouth is a lie….

  29. we have the worst health care

  30. It will be OVERTURN by MOSCOW MITCH.

  31. Donald Trump just doesn't look happy anymore and I just wonder why?

  32. Why did he have to do a Executive Order? It doesn't past the smell test
