Trump Allows States To Impose Work Requirements For Medicaid

Seema Verma

This is the opening shot in administrative welfare reform:

“WASHINGTON — The Trump administration said Thursday that it would allow states to impose work requirements in Medicaid, a major policy shift in the health program for low-income people.

Federal officials said they would support state efforts to require able-bodied adults to engage in work or other “community engagement activities” as a condition of eligibility for Medicaid.

“Our fundamental goal is to make a positive and lasting difference in the health and wellness of our beneficiaries, and today’s announcement is a step in that direction,” said Seema Verma, the administrator of the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. …

The proposals, she said, came from Arizona, Arkansas, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Utah and Wisconsin.”

I said this was coming a few days ago. This is more of the mainstream conservative agenda. It isn’t an Alt-Right agenda. It isn’t even the MAGA agenda.

This is further proof that the 2018 midterms are going to be a clear cut verdict on conservatism. The Trump agenda has been nothing but repealing Obamacare, going after Medicaid, $700 billion NDAA, agitating for regime change in Iran, arming Ukraine, corporate tax cuts, deregulation, favors for Jewish donors, etc. The Senate is even poised to pass some form of DACA amnesty.

I didn’t vote for Donald Trump to deliver a big, beautiful corporate tax cut, to go after Medicaid for poor Whites in Kentucky and Arkansas and do a DACA amnesty.
