Obama Judge Just Secretly Eliminated Major Requirement Overnight, Now It’s Too Late!

Published

on

Now isn’t this typical? While everyone was busy watching President Trump nominate the newest Supreme Court Justice to replace the retiring Justice Kennedy another judge has taken it upon himself to legislate from the bench.

An Obama appointed federal judge ruled late last week that the Trump administration acted in an “arbitrary and capricious” fashion when the administration bowed to the majority and allowed the state of Kentucky to become the first state in the nation to require that low-income people receiving government benefits work or volunteer in their communities in order to qualify for Medicaid.

The ruling by U.S. District Judge James E. Boasberg effectively vacates that approval and sends the state’s program, Kentucky HEALTH, back to the federal Department of Health and Human Services for further review. Boasberg went on to state that the top HHS officials never actually adequately considered whether the program would, in fact, help the state furnish medical assistance to its citizens. Which is the central objective of Medicaid. That “signal omission” renders the decision “arbitrary and capricious,” he concluded.

Trending: White House Guests KNEEL During National Anthem, Trump Makes Them Immediately Regret It

“Over the last month or so, people have been wondering who Trump would appoint to replace Justice Kennedy on the Supreme Court.

Obviously, that’s an incredibly important news story to follow and it’s nice to know that Trump ultimately picked a solid conservative in Brett Kavanaugh.

However, there’s still a lot of other stuff going on that Americans should be paying attention to.

For example, an Obama appointed judge recently ruled against work requirements for welfare programs.

Here’s more on that.

From Washington Post:

A federal judge ruled Friday afternoon that the Trump administration acted in an “arbitrary and capricious” manner when it allowed Kentucky to become the first state in the nation to require that low-income people work or otherwise engage in their communities to qualify for Medicaid.

The decision by U.S. District Judge James E. Boasberg vacates that approval and sends the state’s program, Kentucky HEALTH, back to the federal Department of Health and Human Services for further review.

Boasberg said that top HHS officials “never adequately considered whether [the program] would in fact help the state furnish medical assistance to its citizens, a central objective of Medicaid.” That “signal omission” renders the decision “arbitrary and capricious,” he concluded.

Not good.

Luckily, Kentucky still has a chance to push forward.

Here is more via Modern Healthcare:

“At least two states will push ahead with their programs to impose work requirements on their Medicaid populations despite a federal judge invalidating the CMS’ approval of Kentucky’s far-reaching waiver last month.

U.S. District Judge James Boasberg in Washington, D.C., held that HHS Secretary Alex Azar did not adequately evaluate whether Kentucky’s requirement that expansion enrollees log 80 hours a month of work or community engagement to keep their coverage is consistent with the objective of the Medicaid statute, which he said is to furnish coverage. He left the door open for HHS and the CMS to come back with a more carefully developed model.

The decision could set back the Trump administration’s timetable for transforming Medicaid into a program whose purpose is to improve people’s health and well-being through work and prepare them to switch to private insurance. It also could slow Medicaid expansion in Republican-led states that favor work requirements.

“The same judicial analysis would apply to other states in how the HHS secretary evaluated the Kentucky waiver,” said MaryBeth Musumeci, a Medicaid policy analyst at the Kaiser Family Foundation. “If they are cautious, states might want to pause and see how Kentucky shakes out to avoid getting bogged down in litigation.”

Because of the ruling, GOP Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin says the state will cut dental and vision coverage for nearly a half-million Kentuckians covered by Medicaid.

The CMS has approved work requirement waivers for Arkansas, Indiana and New Hampshire in addition to Kentucky. At least nine more states that have applied for waivers or plan to apply have to decide whether to proceed or wait to see what happens in the Kentucky case.

Arkansas and Indiana officials indicated they are pushing ahead, saying the ruling has no immediate impact on their Section 1115 waiver programs. New Hampshire officials did not respond to requests for comment.”

It seems leftist judges actually take issue with the fact that there is no reason why poor people shouldn’t have to at least volunteer their time to a worthy cause in order to get their “Free Stuff.” Why do we taxpayers have to work our behinds off day in and day out so people who are poor can get things we have to pay dearly for, for free, and they aren’t even expected to contribute in any way to society?

This ruling just makes no sense whatsoever, but then again, neither did the fact that the American people voted for Barack Hussein Obama, not once but twice. Now we will be suffering the repercussions for decades to come.

White House Guests KNEEL During National Anthem, Trump Makes Them Immediately Regret It

The Marine Corp band in their bright red uniforms were on the south balcony of the White House on a bright, sunny Tuesday in Washington, DC. The Army Chorus sang, beginning the event with ‘America the Beautiful’ and concluded with ‘God Bless America’. At least two people who were guests at President Trump’s Celebration of America event yesterday knelt, showing exactly why so many Americans are ticked over the National Anthem controversy.

The event replaced a celebration at the White House in honor of the Super Bowl win for the Philadelphia Eagles. These two disrespectful idiots took a knee as the “Star Spangled Banner” rang out across the South Lawn of the White House. Simply disgraceful. These aren’t social justice warriors… these are unpatriotic jerks.

A video was posted to Twitter by a reporter for SVT, the Swedish national public TV broadcaster. It shows a man, wearing a light blue button down, kneeling as the National Anthem played, before clapping and ultimately coming to his feet after the song finished. I guess he thought that was his five minutes of fame or something.

What it really amounted to was making a fool out of himself internationally. President Trump showcases all of these liberal dimwits for what they are… America-hating, radical leftists who are far more interested in hating our brave police officers and our country than they are in respecting America and taking national pride in their country and President.

When President Trump took the podium, he blew his audience away with his love for our country, military, police, flag and the National Anthem. He made every single person who disrespects them like this look like the small, craven liberals that they really are. The man, who did not identify himself, left the event immediately after the United States Marine Band performed the anthem, according to a news anchor for TV2 Denmark. Gee, crawling away with his tail between his legs like the lowly cur he his. Guess he couldn’t stand patriotism after he showed how much he hates his own country.

There was a second man who was pictured kneeling as well. That was posted to Twitter by a CNN White House producer. He was wearing a light blue checkered shirt and had a little American flag. This guy was right up front. He was also apparently the same person who reportedly heckled Trump. That guy was roundly booed by everyone around him. CNN’s analyst April Ryan posted false news on Twitter yesterday claiming people were booing Trump when it was the heckler they went after. She eventually retracted what she said after her own colleagues called her out on the lie. “Stop hiding behind the armed services and the National Anthem,” the guy yelled to a chorus of boos, according to the Daily Mail. “Let’s hear it for the Eagles.” “Go home,” one person shouted at the heckler.

The President didn’t engage the heckler, but looked in his direction and pursed his lips. He looked like he wanted to smack him. Right there with ya.

President Trump disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House after they at first said they had more than 70 players coming to the People’s House to celebrate. By this week, that number had dropped to less than ten and then to only one player. They kept trying to change the date to one where President Trump would be out of the country. I don’t blame the President in the least for canceling the visit. That was totally appropriate. If you insist on being ungrateful and insulting a sitting President of the United States, then you don’t deserve the honor of going to the White House period.

Trump claimed on Monday that the team disagreed “with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country.” Eagles players denied that accusation, pointing out that no one on the team knelt for the anthem during last season. But that has nothing to do with how each individual on the team states his beliefs and shows his disrespect for President Trump.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused the team of a “political stunt” just minutes before Tuesday’s alternative event began, claiming the players had chosen to “abandon their fans.” That’s exactly what they did. “If this wasn’t a political stunt by the Eagles franchise then they wouldn’t have committed to attend the event and then backed out,” she said in her Tuesday press briefing. “And if it wasn’t a political stunt, they wouldn’t have attempted to reschedule the visit while the President was overseas.”

Trump was brief in his remarks and only spoke for about four minutes. He began by explaining why it’s an issue of patriotism for Americans to stand for the National Anthem. “We love our flag and stand for our National Anthem,” Trump said to great applause from the crowd on the South Lawn of the White House. “We stand to honor our military and to honor country and to honor the fallen heroes who never made it back home.” Yes, we do… and those that don’t can take a hike.

Melania Unveils This Year’s White House Christmas Decorations That Libs Are SURE To Hate

Melania Trump’s first year in office was marked by immense criticism of our incredible first lady, who in the eyes of the Trump family’s numerous detractors, Melania could do nothing right, or at least as well as her predecessor, Michelle Obama. This included her full Christmas decor plan, which was stunning in silver and white, and a beautiful modern take on the same tired style that Michelle un-creatively came up with.

This year’s decorations will likely be no different, if not worse.

Last year, liberals claimed she decked the halls in depression and gloom, likening it to looking more like a haunted house than a holiday home. So, what will they say about this year’s new look?

Chicks On The Right reports:

FLOTUS doesn’t just slay on the fashion front. Her decorating skills are off the charts. (Yes, yes– I know she didn’t do this by herself, but if you really believe she didn’t have a say, you’re nuuuuuuuuuuuuts.)

ANYWHO. She finally unveiled this year’s White House Christmas decorations, and they’re GORGEOUS.

You have no idea how much I want to stroll through those halls of beautifully decorated trees. Oh well. I’ll have to settle for the aisles of Hobby Lobby.

It all looks great. I’m obsessed. TY, that is all.
