Both Wrong

Twitter is great for keeping up with the news, and of course, it’s the location where all sorts of distortions can be found..

The Democrats is wrong because there is no chance that the voters allow this.

Foreclosure Nation is wrong because it is a) largely speculation on the first sentence (and the idea of privatizing Medicare has been in place prior to the Biden administration), and b) employers, not elected officials, which have moved retirees, or are moving them to group Medicare Advantage, it has nothing to do with a political party. This was always going to happen.

To assign blame to a political party is misleading at best, and I’m trying to be polite.
