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?

All eyes were on Ivanka Trump Tuesday evening, with the first daughter appearing quite fashionable as President Donald Trump hosted his first state dinner honoring French President Emmanuel Macron. Escorted by husband Jared Kushner, Ivanka is seen in the video below blowing well-wishers a kiss. (Video) The couple arrived early for the formal event and she looked fabulous in a $13,686 pink tulle Rodarte gown, according to the Daily Mail.

Former FBI Director James Comey said Wednesday that he is concerned because he barely sees President Trump laugh or use humor in casual situations. Citing former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama as examples, Comey said during a CNN town hall that humor and the ability to laugh at oneself are important qualities of a well-balanced leader, but not ones that Trump exhibits. “I never saw President Trump laugh even in an almost-hour-and-a-half-long, private dinner and so I became a little concerned about this,” Comey said, while suggesting that the president might be insecure.

As America approaches her 250th birthday, her instruction manual, the U.S. Constitution, is under assault as never before. The First Amendment is under attack by campus speech police and social media, censoring and deciding which political statements are welcomed and which are verboten. The Second Amendment is threatened by leftist elitists happy to ban guns for the law-abiding as long as they can have armed guards protecting themselves and their families from the criminals who don´t give a whit about whatever gun laws the left proposes.

Darden, an Obama supporter whose regularly railed against Trump, said that he talked with the rap superstar for about 30 minutes to try and understand what he was thinking. “Kanye wants to deprogram people,

First Lady Melania Trump greeted French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife, Brigitte Macron, at the White House on Monday, alongside President Trump, in only the most luxurious French designs. While welcoming the French leader and his wife to the White House, Mrs. Trump paid homage to fashion icon Hubert de Givenchy — founder of the French fashion house “Givenchy” and known for dressing actress Audrey Hepburn — who died last month in a black wool tuxedo-inspired cape. The cape, although Givenchy, could have easily been mistaken for a black tuxedo cape out of Anthony Vaccarello’s latest collection for Saint

We value intelligence and knowledge. With good reason. Intelligent, thoughtful illumination has an uplifting effect on individuals and a civilization. We´ve seen that many times throughout history. The founding of our American Republic is one such stellar example.Back in the 1980s, I recall someone lamenting how the most qualified and best candidate to never become president was Adlai Stephenson. Certainly, the Democratic Party has been trying since Stephenson to claim the mantle of "intelligent." Democrats are always the smart ones – smarter, better policies, and as a result morally superior. Now, it´s hard not to notice that the pinnacle of the

A survey by the Centers for Disease Control on defensive gun use (DGU) in the United States that shows DGU happening more regularly than gun crimes has never been publicized. Gary Kleck, a Florida State criminologist, conducted his own study of DGU and his results mirror those of the CDC. The Daily Caller: The CDC’s data, collected a few years after Kleck’s survey, appears to corroborate his findings, Reason.com reported.

Perhaps the most enduring puzzlement about Donald Trump the president and candidate is his ability, if that’s what it is, to attract a faithful political base founded on fervent evangelical Christians, despite his frequently reinforced reputation for less than righteous acts and statements. During the 2015-16 campaign, each emerging example of Trump misbehavior, from off-color references to women and allegations of affairs, convinced Eastern elites and media to believe the billionaire’s upstart political rebellion was doomed any day.

On the domestic and foreign fronts, the Trump administration has prompted economic growth and restored U.S. deterrence. Polls show increased consumer confidence, and in some, Trump himself has gained ground. Yet good news is bad news to the Resistance and its strange continued efforts to stop an elected president in a way it failed to do in the 2016 election. Indeed, the aim of the so-called Resistance to Donald J. Trump is ending Trump’s presidency by any means necessary before the 2020 election. Or, barring that, it seeks to so delegitimize him that he becomes presidentially impotent. It has been only

Bill and Hillary Clinton´s only daughter Chelsea, as well as her staff, noted how press was handled and how the Duchess of Cambridge handled herself, and used it as a template for themselves, the book claims.

Sanders´s office has yet to release the details of the plan´s funding, but previous large-scale projects proposed by the Vermont progressive have involved ending tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans and large corporations.

Former Democratic Senate Leader Harry Reid, who was once “hopeful” about President Trump, is not warming up to the commander in chief. Reid still has hurt feelings about Trump mocking the injuries he sustained when an exercise band he was using at home snapped and hit him in the face. Reid fell to the floor, breaking his ribs and bones in his face. He now is blind in one eye. Trump mocked Reid in September 2016 after the Democratic leader commented on Trump’s weight. “[To show] what kind of a person he is, when I injured myself, I couldn’t sleep

Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, warned President Trump firing special counsel Robert Mueller could lead to impeachment, becoming one of the first congressional Republicans to mention impeachment directly. “Firing Mr. Mueller would be a grave error. It would trigger a crisis, possibly even impeachment,” Hatch said in a Wall Street Journal opinion piece published Tuesday night. “It would threaten many of the administration’s accomplishments and make continued progress virtually impossible.” In his op-ed, Hatch endorsed the proposed legislation aimed at protect Mueller from being fired by Trump, or, for that matter, any president from firing a counsel appointed to investigating potential presidential misconduct.

The election is over and Republican Debbie Lesko has won a West Valley congressional special election in a district that has leaned right for decades. Here’s what else we learned from the unexpectedly competitive race to replace Trent Franks, the veteran Republican who resigned in December amid a sexual-misconduct scandal.The unofficial results show a dramatic underperformance by a Republican in the solidly GOP district. That’s a problem for Republicans, who now need to sort through the results to determine how problematic the landscape will be for them in November. Republicans have a 17 percentage point registration advantage in the district. President Donald Trump
