Timothy Costa, Government Relations Principal, comments on President Trump's stance on Medicare in Investopedia's article "Should Retirees Worry About Medicare Under Trump?"
“President-elect Trump did not make Medicare reform a centerpiece of his campaign, and it’s highly unlikely he’d propose something that impacts retirees,” says Timothy Costa, principal of government relations with Pittsburgh-based law firm Buchanan, Ingersoll & Rooney.
“Candidate Trump talked a lot of drug costs and waste, fraud and abuse in the program. It’s likely he’ll start with those areas, which encompass far more than just Medicare,” Costa says.
“It’s too early to tell what reform is going to look like, and interested parties will have ample opportunity to have their voices heard,” Costa says.
