Entitlements

A big potential flash point between Trump and Ryan is entitlement reform. Interestingly, the healthcare page on the Trump transition site now includes a reference not just to changing Medicaid, but to modernizing Medicare:

  • Modernize Medicare, so that it will be ready for the challenges with the coming retirement of the Baby Boom generation – and beyond
  • Maximize flexibility for States in administering Medicaid, to enable States to experiment with innovative methods to deliver healthcare to our low-income citizens
