Congressman Fleming opened with sharing the recent update in Congress, especially considering the current Supreme Court Nominee. He addressed concerns about the national debt and eliminating the death tax. Welfare waste and abuse is rampant and he does not think it will change until a new Executive Branch is brought in. Social Security and Medicare costs, along with drug costs are responsible for how much Seniors are struggling. As a Doctor himself, he sees costs being transferred from one class of people to another. It is not based on market forces but government regulations and not helpful for affordability.
