Kentucky to add Medicaid work requirement;
first state to follow Trump plan

Fox News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/13/2018 2:27:18 PM

Kentucky received the green light Friday to require many of its Medicaid recipients to work in order to receive coverage.The Bluegrass State thus becomes the first state to act on the Trump administration’s unprecedented change that could affect millions of low-income people receiving benefits. Under the new rule, adults age 19 to 64 must complete 80 hours of "community engagement" per month to keep their care. That includes working a job, going to school, taking a job-training course or volunteering."There is dignity associated with earning the value of something that you receive," Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin said. "The vast majority

This will cause a big drop off. When they added back the work requirement to food stamps in California, it went way down. Every three months you have to fill out paperwork, showing where you tried to get a job and send it in before a certain date or you are dropped and getting back on is very hard.
Just asking this simple task is more than many frauds can handle.

When I see couples using SNAP cards and EBT cards, and both are healthy, and then see ´hiring´ signs on businesses, I´m thinking work instead of freebies. I would be embarrassed to ask for help when I can fend for myself, but I´m not a democrat!

So many of our problems rest with poor parenting! Facing a truth if you have a choice between a $100.00 in groceries and a $100.00 in tattoos what choice is there?

We find person after person, with extravent piercings, tattoos, hair and nails, so much self adulation. Then we see children hungry, sick and dislocated poorly educated! It is the parent stupid!

This society of ours is out of wack! Look at the police photos, look at the welfare recipients! Look at reality!

If you cannot feed yourself or your children din’t Ask me to chip in ifvyou are doing piercings and body art! And your children are hurting!

If you are sick, if you are disabled I am here to help but don’t spit in my face!

The sad fact (liberals cringe) is that far to much of our welfare programs have been managed to buy votes. Paying able-bodied people to NOT work has no other purpose.

Why do full-time students get an exemption? They have enough time in their schedules to do 80 hours a month of public service or have a part-time job. Most of us worked while we attended college, what makes these snowflakes unable to do that?

Wanna bet they spend more than 80 hours a month watching TV or playing video games?

Regarding the low-lifes abusing the system intended for the truly sick and needy:
My experience is that there are a good number of these slugs in my neck of the woods.
They work the system to get every freebie available and complain constantly, but they will have the Five Essentials of Low-Life Living (this cuts across all racial and ethnic lines).
The Essentials are (in no particular order):
-Beer
-Cigarettes
-Air Conditioning
-Cable TV
-a Smartphone.

So they can sit in the air conditioning, drink beer, smoke cigarettes, watch soap operas, and gossip/send text messages on the ´phone.

Anyone else see this pattern?

Now that a little thing called economic reality has overtaken months of dishonest media reporting about the Republican tax bill signed into law by President Trump last month, a plurality of 47 percent support the bill, while only 34 percent remain opposed.This is a huge (and predicable) turnaround when compared to those polls released in the heart of the media campaign to kill the tax bill. In early December, Gallup showed just 29 percent support for the bill; as did Quinnipiac. Less than a month ago, the left-wing cable news network CNN released a poll that showed support for the

Are Trump-haters giving up

Yesterday saw two famous Trump-haters eschewing Hitler in finding murderous tyrants with whom to compare President Trump. J. Marsolo notes elsewhere on these pages that just prior to the release of President Trump´s Fake News Awards, Republican Senator Jeff Flake described President Trump´s criticism of media reporting as similar to Stalin´s practice of imprisoning and executing critics of his regime because Trump once employed the words "enemy of the people" to describe fake news media. I guess that Flake is unaware of Henrik Ibsen, the world-famous Norwegian playwright who popularized the expression in the late nineteenth century. (Photo) After Republican

Men can now look forward to a liberated future of wearing dresses. One such fashion designer, Alejandro Gomez Palomo of Spain, is helping to rush in that new era. According to the 25-year-old Palomo, whose public appearance looks as if Dracula spent a weekend at Liberace´s house, gender fluidity is a way of life he hopes that future men can share. In an interview with AFP, Palomo likened his fashion revolution to the ones ushered by Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent in the 20th century.

WASHINGTON- President Donald Trump relentlessly congratulates himself for the healthy state of the U.S. economy, with its steady growth, low unemployment, busier factories and confident consumers.But in the year since Trump´s inauguration, most analysts tend to agree on this: The economy remains essentially the same sturdy one he inherited from Barack Obama.Growth has picked up, but it´s not yet clear if it can sustain a faster expansion. Hiring and wage growth actually slowed slightly from Obama´s last year in office. Consumers and businesses are much more optimistic, but their spending has yet to move meaningfully higher.

A crazed, bug-eyed Cory Booker, junior senator from New Jersey, blasted Department of Homeland Security secretary Kristjen Nielsen during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing yesterday on immigration. Booker became so unhinged in his staged outrage that he repeatedly threatened Nielsen, with clenched fists pointed in her direction. Equal to Booker´s overt violation of Nielsen´s right to be treated without hostility and intimidation was the deranged content of his tirade. Nielsen had stated earlier she did not hear the president say the "s-hole" word at last week´s White House meeting on DACA. Booker went ballistic and accused Nielsen of covering up

The New Jersey lawmaker blasted Nielsen´s "silence and amnesia" after failing to get the response he sought on her recollection of statements President Trump made in a meeting last week. Booker´s hostile tone prompted Republican National Committee Rapid Response Director Michael Ahrens to invoke the millennial term for males talking down to women.

Gupta’s diagnosis came a day after Trump’s doctor, Navy Rear Adm.

Three-quarters of the members of a federally chartered board advising the National Park Service abruptly quit Monday night out of frustration that Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke had refused to meet with them or convene a single meeting last year. The resignation of nine out of 12 National Park System Advisory Board members leaves the federal government without a functioning body to designate national historic or natural landmarks. It also underscores the extent to which federal advisory bodies have become marginalized under the Trump administration. In May 2017, Zinke suspended all outside committees while his staff reviewed their composition and work. In a

Microwaves are as damaging to the environment as cars and users must be taught how to cook more efficiently, scientists say. The ovens are responsible for 7.7 million tons of the ­carbon dioxide pumped out from the EU each year — the equivalent of 6.8 million cars. Researchers say they are fueling global warming with consumers overcooking food to blame. Microwaves account for the largest percentage of sales of all types of oven in the EU, with numbers set to reach 135 million by 2020. But scientists at the University of Manchester — the first to assess the environmental impact
