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?

After France’s win over Croatia in the World Cup finals, thousands of fans took to the streets. While most just wanted to celebrate and have a good time, those parties eventually devolved into riots across the country. The Mirror is reporting that two people actually died in the rioting: Two French football supporters have died as violence erupted across the country following Les Bleus ’ World Cup triumph.Some of the worst scenes were in central Paris, where the Champs Élysées remained closed in the early hours of Monday following widespread rioting and looting.

Hillary Clinton uses World Cup to

Hillary Clinton took a shot at President Trump on Twitter Sunday night — cracking a joke about the World Cup and “which team” he’s playing for — ahead of his private summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin. “Great World Cup,” Clinton tweeted in response to France’s win over Croatia. “Question for President Trump as he meets Putin,” she said. “Do you know which team you play for?” Trump and Putin are scheduled to meet in Finland on Monday — without any of their aides or administration members — for a 90-minute sit-down. Their discussion will be private and there will be

Judge Brett Kavanaugh is going into the Supreme Court confirmation process with a hail of rhetorical arrows zinging by him, including a phony letter-writing campaign aimed at unsuspecting American newspaper editors. At least 21 papers were duped last week, including big-market brands like the Dallas Morning News and The Washington Times. They ran identical letters over a four-day period, each signed by a different person. The effort is an example of public-relations ´astroturfing,´ a technique meant to simulate genuine grassroots support for an idea or cause.

Over the weekend CNN host Jake Tapper “accidentally” retweeted an image of a Democratic Socialists of America flyer that says “the future of the Democratic Party” is full-blown socialism. While it’s unclear where the photo was snapped or if it even came from that group, the flyer listed everything the far-left group hates, including President Donald Trump, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the police, Israel, the pro-life movement, Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, private property, the right to work, corporations and compromise.

Before there was Peter Strzok, there was Zip Connolly. People tend to forget, or maybe never knew, just how corrupt the famous but incompetent Federal Bureau of Investigation has always been. This current scandal is just business as usual for the agency that has metastasized into America’s secret police. Strzok’s weaselly testimony last week showed just how far off the rails the crooked feds have gone. And it just so happens that this summer is the 40th anniversary of another horrific crime, one in which this same crew of dirty cops played a supporting, but revealing role. This is a

France erupted in joy on Sunday as the country clinched the World Cup, with fans streaming into the streets, honking car horns and flying the tricolour flag at the start of an enormous national celebration. Cheers rang out throughout the country for each of four goals in the final as "Les Bleus" beat Croatia, transforming the young team into national icons 20 years after the country´s first World Cup triumph in 1998. Even before the final whistle rang out in Moscow, crowds had packed the Champs Elysees in central Paris in a repeat of the scenes of 20 years ago

Rod Rosenstein and Robert Mueller indicted 12 Russian military officials days before President Trump’s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Rosenstein also planned his press conference at the same time President Trump was meeting with the Queen of England. With the 12 Russians indicted Friday, the corrupt Mueller team has now indicted 31 individuals and 3 companies, with more than 80% of the indictments related to Russians who will never be prosecuted.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton ripped the Trump administration on Friday during a teachers union conference in Pittsburgh. Speaking to thousands at the American Federation of Teachers Convention, Clinton expressed her disdain over multiple Trump policies. The ongoing issue of migrant family separations at the border goes beyond politics, she said, adding that it was disgraceful, inhumane and indecent. President Trump signed an executive order in June to allow migrant children to stay with parents who were caught crossing the border illegally. Clinton went on to say that the administration wants to transform the

President Trump is slamming FBI agent Peter Strzok as a “disgrace to our country,” saying the bureau’s “witch hunt” into possible coordination between his 2016 campaign and Russia is hurting the United States. Mr. Trump said he watched some of Mr. Strzok’s congressional testimony last week and thought it was “a disgrace to our country.” “I thought it was an absolute disgrace. Where he wants to do things against me before I was even, I guess before I was even the candidate. It was a disgrace. And then he lied about it,” Mr. Trump said in an interview with CBS News, portions of which were released Sunday.

Prince Charles and Prince William reportedly ‘snubbed’ the US President during his visit to Britain - leaving the Queen to meet Donald Trump alone at Windsor Castle. The royal father and son apparently shared their desire to not take part in the arrangements during informal discussions regarding the president’s four-day tour. Trump’s trip was not a state visit and so only the Queen greeted the president and his wife Melania. However even on working trips dignitaries expect to see more members of the royal family than only the Queen. When deciding which royals to include in the meeting, senior courtiers shared concerns about

Anyone who has ever been to a recycling plant is invariably surprised at how dirty and nasty America’s favorite green activity really is. Trucks dump the material on a long conveyor belt, where a few dozen people pick through by hand what is supposed to be recyclable material, but more and more often is just plain old dirty trash. The recyclables used to be worth something more than bragging rights about liberal moral superiority. Plastic bottles, newspapers, and cardboard, were just a few of the favorites you could ship to China by the ton and make a few bucks along the

Americans are encouraged to embrace diversity and be culturally sensitive to those who have flouted our laws and invaded our nation. Meanwhile, illegal aliens arriving in America have no such requirement. Instead, trespassing tribes relocate, and when they do, rather than assimilate, they transfer habits and activities indigenous to the countries from whence they migrated. Thus, Americans suffer from illnesses that are easily traceable to third-world bathroom habits (TWBH) and lack of hygiene in the developing world.

Watching FBI agent Peter Strzok battle with Congress, my initial reaction was pure anger. His repeated, arrogant insistence that he had done nothing wrong despite tons of evidence to the contrary convinced me he deserved immediate firing — if not the firing squad. Gradually, though, anger gave way to amazement as Strzok grew increasingly combative and condescending. Given his predicament, the sneering and smirking were stupid, and yet he persisted. Who is this jerk, I wondered, and how in the hell did he get to be a big shot at the FBI? And why are taxpayers still paying for the privilege of

The left-wing terrorist organization that calls itself Antifa is “freaking out” over a proposed law that would enhance penalties for anyone who “injures, oppresses, threatens, or intimidates any person” while wearing a disguise or mask. Throughout our country, and for a number of years now — and primarily because the establishment media fantasizes about, promotes, enflames and approves of the violence committed against the right (naturally, HuffPo opposes the unmasking law) — Antifa has been allowed to run rampant, committing countless acts of violence against everyday, peaceful supporters of President Donald Trump.

Mariah Lopez, 13, and her grandmother Oralia Mendoza, 49, were killed on June 4 in Moon Cemetery outside of Huntsville, Alabama, prosecutors revealed in court on Thursday. The new details in the case came in a hearing for 26-year-old Yoni Aguilar, who along with 34-year-old Israel Palomino is charged with two counts each of capital murder in the slayings.
