Coalition of retirees demand stop to privatization of Medicare

Apr 17, 2024

A coalition of city retirees has drafted a letter to President Joe Biden calling for the federal government to put a halt to the privatization of Medicare and instead expand the public health program.

A dozen of the retirees gathered Friday in front of a Federal Plaza building on Broadway to call attention to the escalating practice by local and state governments of switching their employees and their retirees into private, for-profit Medicare Advantage plans, which critics say are poor substitutes for publicly administered Medicare.
