Trump and MAGA Republicans’ Plot To End Arizonans  Medicare As We Know It

PHOENIX, ARIZONA– Today, Arizona Democratic Party Chair Yolanda Bejarano responded to recent reporting that Donald Trump’s MAGA Republican allies are planning for Trump to end Medicare as we know it:

“Donald Trump has long campaigned on attacking access to healthcare and now his MAGA Republican allies, like Rep. David Schweikert, are laying the groundwork to effectively end Medicare as we know it for millions of Arizonans. While Trump and MAGA Republicans continue fighting to create barriers to the healthcare Arizonans rely on so they can pander to their ultra-wealthy donors, President Joe Biden has been working to make healthcare more accessible and affordable by bolstering the Affordable Care Act, capping the cost of prescription drugs and lowering premiums. Arizonans understand the stakes of this election and that Trump’s deeply unpopular agenda threatens to devastate our hardworking families.”

Donald Trump’s MAGA Republican allies want to decimate Arizonans access to health care:

  • MAGA Republicans’ plan to end Medicare as we know it by “totally privatiz[ing] Medicare — and fast” would be devastating to the $1.4 million Arizonans who rely on it.
  • Trump said he would pursue cuts to Social Security and Medicare in a second term in office — and has threatened the programs’ financial standing by promising to permanently eliminate the taxes that fund both programs.
  • Trump has long made calls to privatize Social Security and even praised congressional Republicans as they pushed plans to end Medicare as we know it.
  • Trump and MAGA Republicans’ plan to gut Social Security and Medicare is extremely unpopular with Americans — including Republicans.
  • Trump is hellbent on dismantling the ACA and ripping away health care from millions of Americans – including $235,229 Arizonans.
