Faculty Affiliates Mark V. Pauly and Kevin Volpp write about Trump’s detrimental impact on Medicare in their Op-Ed for Marketplace.
“President Trump has proposed some modest steps to slow the apparently inexorable growth in Medicare entitlement spending, breaking with his campaign promise to leave alone government-funded programs for seniors.
