Consistency, Decency and Compassion Are All Casualties of The New Administration.
From the WaPo (Now the nation’s leading newspaper).
"President Trump has made combating the nation’s drug-overdose problem a focal point of his campaign and his presidency.
“We will stop the drugs from pouring into our country and poisoning our youth,” he said in a speech before Congress last week, “and we will expand treatment for those who have become so badly addicted.”
And then there is this.
"The Republican proposal to replace the Affordable Care Act would strip away what advocates say is essential coverage for drug addiction treatment as the number of people dying from opiate overdoses is skyrocketing nationwide.
Beginning in 2020, the plan would eliminate an Affordable Care Act requirement that Medicaid cover basic mental-health and addiction services in states that expanded it, allowing them to decide whether to include those benefits in Medicaid plans."
So the President would not support the GOP plan as currently written? Wrong.
"Trump has endorsed the Republican plan to replace the ACA."
Even after just a few weeks of the President he is already being chosen Worst President Ever. And wouldn't you think a man that needs mental health treatment as much as Trumpie does would want mental treatment in Medicaid plans?
