work requirements

Medicaid and the Democratic War on Work

David Catron, The American Spectator

We should regard the hysterics of the left as a reverse barometer where socio-economic prognostication is concerned. If they tell us work requirements will hurt the poor, we should expect them to improve the lives of low-income Americans — and not merely in terms of reduced poverty, lower unemployment, and better living conditions. Work requirements will also improve the general health of enrollees.

Trump is right about Medicaid work requirements

Editors, Washington Examiner

There will be cynical efforts by the Left to portray Medicaid waivers and work requirements as harmful to the poor. But nothing could be further from the truth. Appropriate and tailored work requirements preserve welfare programs so that their funding goes to help those in need and is not wasted on others. Getting people out of morally enfeebling dependency is also a good thing.
