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.

“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.

Details Of The Death Threats Mrs. Kavanaugh Is Getting Will Churn Your Stomach

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by The Daily Caller:

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s wife Ashley Estes Kavanaugh has received a battery of death threats in recent days, after allegations appeared in the press that the judge sexually assaulted Christine Blasey Ford in 1982.

The vivid missives are just one iteration of the inflamed rhetoric surrounding Kavanaugh’s nomination to the high court, following Ford’s accusations. The Ford family has similarly been threatened.

“May you, your husband and your kids burn in hell,” one message to Mrs. Kavanaugh read.

Another told Mrs. Kavanaugh to put a bullet in her husband’s skull.

The Wall Street Journal obtained the emails on Thursday, which were delivered as federal law enforcement is tracking an uptick in threats against Judge Kavanaugh and his family. The messages were sent to Mrs. Kavanaugh’s work email address. The U.S. Marshals Service is pursuing the matter.

The Kavanaugh family has drawn intense media attention since Ford’s accusations were publicized Sunday in The Washington Post. Mrs. Kavanaugh delivered cupcakes to a gaggle of reporters stationed outside their home on Tuesday.

Mrs. Kavanaugh is no stranger to political conflict. She was an assistant to former President George W. Bush when he was governor of Texas and later served as his personal secretary in the White House. She is currently a town manager in Chevy Chase, Maryland.

Ford herself has also been subject to vile threats. She and her family have been forced from their home in California and remain concerned for their safety, according to her attorneys.

Republicans Quietly Set All-Time Record While Democrats Collapse Overnight

Published

on

While the American Left is busy trying to pull the rug from under hard-working Americans by pushing an anti-Trump narrative that’s about as believable as the conspiracy that the earth is flat, the GOP was doing a bit of magic of its own.

It’s now being reported that the Republican National Committee has smashed all fundraising records by raising $213 million so far for the fall midterm elections. And what’s even better is the fact the 99% of the money comes from small donations.

Here is more via CNN:

“The Republican National Committee has raised more than $200 million this election cycle, according to an RNC official, the fastest the committee has reached the milestone in a midterm period.

The fundraising achievement, which was expected after the committee came within $900,000 of $200 million last month, is significant for a party that is trying to buck historical norms in 2018. The political party in power traditionally gets rejected at the ballot box two years after they take power, a fact that President Donald Trump has mentioned numerous times in public and private as Republicans prepare for November.

The RNC raised $13.9 million in the month of June — the most it has raised in that month in a non-presidential year — bringing its total fundraising haul to $213 million for the 2017-2018 cycle.

The committee has $50.7 million in the bank and no debt.

The RNC’s numbers will officially be released on Friday when the committee files with the Federal Election Commission.

The RNC haul far eclipses the more than $101 million the Democratic National Committee has raised this cycle, giving the committee upwards of five times the amount of cash-on-hand as the Democrats.

“What I see when I travel the country is that Americans continue to be enthusiastic about President Trump and the Republican agenda,” RNC chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said in a statement. “That enthusiasm has allowed for me to grow our war chest and invest it into what has become the biggest ground game in our Party’s history.”

Despite the excitement McDaniel says she has experienced traveling the country, polling has consistently shown Democrats, motivated by anti-Trump fervor, are more excited to vote in 2018 and see the election as a referendum on the President. That excitement, though, has not turned into a fundraising boon for the DNC.

The DNC raised $67 million in 2017, half of the $132.5 million the RNC raised that year. And, to date, the committee has raised $101 million this cycle, according to a DNC official, a number that pales in comparison to the RNC haul.

The fundraising woes have left the Democrats without much in the bank. According to its last FEC report, the RNC had $47 million in cash on hand, five times as much as the $9 million the Democrats have.

Party Chair Tom Perez, who was tasked with rebuilding a beleaguered DNC after Hillary Clinton’s loss in 2016, has tried to focus on fundraising while also investing their smaller war chest in more strategic ways than previous chairs.

“For me, the north star is not can we match them dollar for dollar,” Perez told CNN of the RNC. “It is can we raise the money we need to execute our game plane.”

The DNC under Perez, for example, has spent no money on television ads, something his predecessors did do.

McDaniel, who became RNC chair in December 2016, has led the committee’s effort to raise massive sums during the 2018 midterms.

With an eye on investing $250 million into the party’s midterm efforts, McDaniel has spent a bulk of her time traveling from state-to-state to raise money for the party.”

Western Journalism is reporting that this is, in fact, the fasted the GOP has ever surpassed the $200 million mark during a midterm election year. Which would point to the fact that people are happy with President Donald Trump and his agenda.

Chairwoman of the GOP Ronna McDaniel has said she is traveling the nation and that she sees the fact that people are happy with the Republican agenda wherever she goes. And that’s what is causing this influx of funds at such a high rate of speed. McDaniel has held over 88 fundraisers and is on the phone with donors for six hours a day.

Now what’s even better is that according to the fundraiser numbers that will be released today the Republican party broke the record for the most amount of money raised in June during a non-presidential election year: $13.9 million. And what’s perhaps even a better gauge is that the GOP also has $50.7 million in the bank and zero debt. This alone places them well ahead of the Democrat National Committee, which has raised $101 million and has $9 million on hand. That’s 5 times less than the money the RNC has to spend in the upcoming midterms. This is not a new problem for the DNC, in 2017 they were only able to raise $67 million compared to the $132.5 million raised by the RNC. Pretty pathetic if you consider the DNC owns all of Hollywood.
