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

    I have no problem with the work requirement because its not just work but volunteering,going to school etc but seriously getting rid of BASIC dental and vision care is just bullshit. The simple fact is A LOT of lazy ass people will be dumped from medicaid for not doing a simple volunteer work or going to class there is no reason to cut people's dental work and vision services. Tennessee does that shit and its part of the reason I left there. As it is I pay for my glasses but not the vision testing and my kids get it all for free until they are 18. Me and wife both go to school so eventually won't need medicaid but still completely disagree with that. If your goal is to make the people healthier then don't cut BASIC vision and dental!

    There has been a drop in the numbers that are accepting welfare. And no one has starved to death to date. And neither have their children. The democrat Armageddon scenario has failed to materialize yet again.
    No children were harmed in the making of this requirement..

    It's good policy. In my world, other than YOUNG children, the TRULY disabled and the elderly work for their benefits. It improves moral and work ethic. There's always something to do, from sweeping the streets to picking up garbage to community service.

    Something for nothing strikes natural law the wrong way.

    Never said people would starve and since this has to do with medicaid no one would starve to death either way. I said its bullshit move to take the most basic dental and eye care from people who can't afford it as it is. Take it ALL away from people who refuse to get off their ass to at least do some volunteer work no need to double the punishment by eliminating the dental and vision care.

    No its not you moron. I agree with the OVERALL policy that if you won't get off your ass to at least volunteer or expand your education or look for work you shouldn't get shit for free but I disagree with them cutting the basic dental and vision services only to have to earn those back. EVERYTHING should be cut for those that refuse to do any of the things you can do to keep the benefits and EVERYTHING should stay for those that will work or go to school or volunteer.

    I was surprised this hasn't been posted yet. Kentucky Governor, and resident asshole, Matt Bevin made Kentucky the first state in the U.S. to have a work requirement to qualify for Medicaid. A person must work 80 hours a month, the same as the requirement for SNAP benefits, in order to qualify for Medicaid. Now I don't call Bevin an asshole for that... it's because he cut the funding for education in Kentucky, even though Kentucky lags WAY behind other states.

    Kentucky becomes first U.S. state to impose Medicaid work provisions

    That's a good step. Now go for drug testing, Kentucky.

    I know you can do it.
