President Trump Just Seized Obama Slush Fund And Gives Millions Back To Those Who Deserve It!

Published

on

President Trump has been busily cleaning up Barack Obama’s messes ever since he got in office. He’s creating jobs, cutting taxes, nixing regulations and, in general, giving more control back to American citizens instead of ceding it to the federal government. That’s what a president is elected to do.

In July, the Trump administration announced that it would end what it sees as an illegal Obama-era rule that allows unions to collect dues from state subsidies intended for home health workers, including family caregivers. It acted as a de facto slush fund and now President Trump is giving back millions of dollars that are owed to these workers instead of the unions.

Federal law is supposed to prohibit states from skimming money from Medicaid payments bound for independent in-home personal care workers. But thanks to the Obama administration, back in 2014, they created an exception, stating that states could divert some of that Medicaid money to unions. The flawed reasoning was that these workers effectively were public-sector employees. That’s quite a reach and in my viewpoint, not lawful or moral.

There are eleven liberal states out there that have utilized this provision to raise more than $200 million a year for unions by taking it from health workers who often didn’t even know they were doing it, according to top GOP officials. That’s called ‘theft’ in my book.

This would include states such as California, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Illinois. Illinois is a blue state that has been at the center of recent Supreme Court rulings stripping power from organized labor. None of these states should surprise you in the least that they are doing this kind of thing.

Republicans have been quick to point out that the Obama administrative exception violates the federal Social Security Act. It also violates the rights of home health workers.

President Trump is attempting to rectify this. His decision means that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) have already begun the formal process of proposing a new rule to roll back the Obama regulation.

“The law provides that Medicaid providers must be paid directly and cannot have part of their payments diverted to third parties outside of a few very specific exceptions,” Tim Hill, the acting director of the Center for Medicaid and CHIP Services, said in a formal statement.

“This proposed rule is intended to ensure that providers receive their complete payment, and any circumstances in which a state does divert part of a provider’s payment must be clearly allowed under the law.” And if I read this correctly, notification must be given as well.

Republicans have long sought to put an end to the Obama-era rule, which many see as unethical and illegal. Wisconsin GOP Sen. Ron Johnson, who chairs the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, had urged the Trump administration to take action on the issue earlier this year.

Johnson released a statement that proclaims in part that he would continue to monitor Medicaid funding himself. I believe him and thank goodness someone is doing this.

“Union dues skimming diverts Medicaid funds from the very people that the program is supposed to help,” Johnson (R-WI) said. “I applaud the Trump Administration for taking the first steps to rein in this abuse. My committee will continue to conduct oversight of CMS’s stewardship of Medicaid funds so that American taxpayers can have confidence the funds flow to those in need.”

In 2014, there was a Supreme Court Ruling that home health workers couldn’t constitutionally be required to pay union agency fees because they were not public-sector workers. It didn’t stop the illegal dues skimming that has plagued the system. Perhaps that will be rectified now.

This is just the latest bad news for the unions out there. In June, the Supreme Court swatted them again in Janus v. AFSCME, which held that nonunion public workers could not be forced to pay agency fees to public-sector unions, either.

From Fox News:

“It had long been illegal for unions to force non-members to pay for their explicitly political activity, but the Supreme Court’s ruling extended that prohibition to the payment of the agency fees, saying even those expenditures amounted to unconstitutionally coerced participation in the political activity of collective bargaining.

“In a statement, the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) called the Trump administration’s move a “broad, coordinated attack against working people,” and said it would hurt minorities.

“The proposed CMS rule, combined with the Janus ruling, are two more efforts by the Trump Administration and billionaire-funded special interest groups to silence a workforce comprised of 90 percent women, most of whom are women of color, and to reduce the power of working people by making it more difficult for them to join together in a union to fight to ensure that our loved ones can get the care they need to live at home with dignity,” read a statement by Melody Benjamin, who SEIU said is a home care worker.”

President Trump has done many good things since he has been in office. But one of the best, in my opinion, is checking the power, graft, and corruption of the unions. SEIU can cry into their beer all they want, Trump is going to fix this.

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.
