Trump Plans to Undo Obama Rule Letting Unions Skim Dues From Medicaid Payments
The Trump administration is taking steps to prevent labor unions from withholding dues for home healthcare workers from their Medicaid payments, an Obama-era innovation that many observers believe is illegal.
On Tuesday, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) proposed undoing a 2014 rule allowing states to skim public-sector union dues from Medicaid payments to independent home healthcare providers on the theory that those providers are de facto public employees ‚ÄĒ a privilege that has netted unions anywhere from $71 million (CMS‚Äô estimate) to $200 million (State Policy Network) annually.
‚ÄúThe 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,‚ÄĚ Tim Hill, acting director for the Center for Medicaid and CHIP Services, said in a press release. ‚ÄúThis proposed rule is...

And prayer for our leaders as they have to make important decisions for the safe keeping of our country. So thankful for President Trump as our President. He is not in this for money or power like Hillary but because he loves America and that‚Äôs why I stand by him and the Republican Party.
that's right, dear sister! and Catherine Marshall was an encouragement to many after writing about her grieving process when he passed on! I also thank God that we didn't go head first into their plans, as much as they accomplished, many are trying to unravel those plans now! They need our prayers and support!

We all really know that Trump wants to bring back slavery but he's doing the best he can.

Trump has used more executive orders, then either FDR or Harry Truman! Perhaps one of these days, [URL=https://tinyurl.com/y9ukk5nc]]]https://tinyurl.com/y9ukk5nc (Voters May Be Wising Up)[/URL]ūüĎć
Obama said it didn‚Äôt matter who got elected as a democratic it‚Äôs who you put in charge of government after you leave that matters. Trump knows that, also, he has had more conservative judges appointed than at any time since Ronald Reagan. By unfastening the links of union dues from home health workers puts the idea that, if you get paid by billing Medicaid, you‚Äôre a federal employee, thus expanding the largest union, the federal employee government union from its power. This a small step but a start.
Well, the Golden Mean has went out the window. It is a pity that both the Obama and Trump administrations, had to go to extremes. Now at least superficialSUPS,it could look like Trump may have done a good thing, perhaps and this particular instance. But just a reminder what he did in the first 100 days of his administration.

Highly inappropriate Jim. You say quite often Christian's should stay out of politics but you comment quite often on politics, more so than other topics. You should really take a deeper look at yourself rather than others. Making such inflammatory comments is anything but brotherly love. It's also against biblical teaching.
Titus 3 1 Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work,
2 To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men.
Please refrain from speaking evil others, respect the political leaders and focus more on higher topics, such as the lost souls of our country men.
