Gee Whiz, how's a body suppose to loaf around all day if Trump's gonna make you work to get welfare!  Medicaid for able bodied recipients is a form of welfare!  Get off your ass and get a job!  Angry

(snip)

States can impose a work requirement on some Medicaid recipients, the Trump administration said Thursday, announcing major changes that could push able-bodied people learn new skills or take jobs to get off the government dole.

The policy is voluntary, with states interested in the changes asked to submit proposals for how they would push beneficiaries toward work.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services said it would not accept any plans that affected people with disabilities or others suffering hardships, saying the goal is not punishment but rather to entice those who could be working to get back into the job market.

Excellent! I believe Kentucky is the first to go along with this.

Why do I have a feeling that the majority of states won't do this?

The modern democrat liberal socialist party will NOT like it!   Grin

I can almost see that wicked and ignorant Nancy Pelosi crying about making people work, .. and thus accusing Trump also of racism.    Sad
