It wasn't a Fox News crowd. Bernie was playing to his own supporters.

If that is true, Bernie has been seen now by more FOX viewers then ever before. Steve, did you review that material report by FOX NEWS? Thanks FOX NEWS.

No Ron I didn't "review that material report". I watched Fox on Tuesday night and saw rude Bernie then.

Then you did see the excitement generated in that place. GOD.

Now did you understand why that was?

Deacon Ron Gray
It was because the room was stacked with Bernie supporters.

Steve Williams
Do you want to talk about what Bernie said about his platform, that is what generated the excitement in that room.

The most telling thing about the audience was how many were in favor of medicare for all. That was the tip off that the audience was not representative of the American people. Fox is in the business of making money and they're at the top of the heap. Now other Democrats will be willing to come on Fox and they'll be raking it in, leaving MSNBC in the dust.

Bernies Medicare for all plan would be a disaster for current recipients.

What do you think that Steve. Tell us your feels on the subject in your own words, can you explain why you believe that, your next reply, Steve?

I'm a current recipient Ron and 168 million people added to the system would inevitably degrade the quality of my care.

But my youngest son is a Bernie fan so we cancel out.

You are a current recipient to what Steve? What are you talking about?

You are a current recipient to what Steve? What are you talking about?

This is the reason why I ask this question: Did you see this video report?

Thursday, April 18th 2019 at 12:37PM
Deacon Ron Gray
A current recipient of Medicare. I don't want Bernie mucking around with my Medicare. What did you think I was talking about Ron?

Thursday, April 18th 2019 at 1:05PM
Steve Williams
Why didn't you speak up when Trump was mucking around with our Medicare, which we knew he had no plans in place for Medicare recipients?

Thursday, April 18th 2019 at 2:32PM
Deacon Ron Gray
Give me an example Ron.

I am sure you remember this and I did not hear a word out of you about it:

Donald Trump Wants to Radically Change Medicaid. Here's What the Program Actually Does.

Most Americans give little thought to Medicaid, which is typically viewed as an entitlement program for the poor. But it’s about to get a lot more attention. President Donald Trump is seeking to radically overhaul the $530 billion program by changing its funding—a move that could end up sharply reducing coverage and jeopardizing the financial security of many middle-class families.

The people who will be hurt the most by Trump’s Medicaid plan

Throughout his campaign, President Donald Trump promised not to touch Medicaid, Medicare or Social Security. And just last week, Trump assured Americans that he would provide “insurance for everyone.”

But he’s breaking his promise. In recent days, the new administration has announced plans to slash Medicaid by turning it into a block grant.

An Urban Institute analysis of a previous Republican plan to block grant Medicaid concluded that the proposal would have caused between 14 and 20 million people to lose coverage over a 10-year period. And that’s on top of the nearly 11 million who would lose Medicaid coverage if the Affordable Care Act were repealed. That means a similar Trump health plan could take away Medicaid coverage from up to 31 million people over the next decade.

Steve, I gave you two examples and I am very glad his plan to muck around with our Medicare.

Medicaid and Medicare are different programs Ron. I'm not on Medicaid.

Did you notice that I mention The Affordable Care Act Steve? Trump claimed he kept his campaign promise to “protect coverage for patients with pre-existing conditions.” But the administration supports a lawsuit that it says would lead to the elimination of the Affordable Care Act’s preexisting condition protections.

The president falsely claims, for example, that Democrats support “open borders” and says, without evidence, that the Democrats “will seek to slash budgets” for Medicare and Social Security.

Trump, Oct. 10: Dishonestly called “Medicare for All,” the Democratic proposal would establish a government-run, single-payer health care system that eliminates all private and employer-based health care plans and would cost an astonishing $32.6 trillion during its first 10 years.

Now that Trump realize he has no help from The Republicans, to muck up Medicare until after the election, which I am sure the people of The United States on Medicare will not jeopardize that good Health Care benefits by pulling him back in power, unless he gets help from the Russians again.
