    TRUMPcare: New moms on medicaid have 60 days to find work...or lose coverage

    Why do GOPer men in Congress hate women and children?

    The AHCA would force new moms on Medicaid to find work 60 days after labor.
    On Monday night, Paul Ryan attempted to lure more of his far-right Republican compadres on board with the GOP’s proposed health care plan with a set of changes to the bill. The so-called “manager’s amendment” makes the American Health Care Act a significantly more conservative proposal that would mean severe cuts to coverage for the poorest Americans.

    The AHCA, which would replace the Affordable Care Act, already represented a sweeping rollback of women’s health care coverage—it effectively dismantles all insurance coverage for abortion; eliminates requirements of essential services to be covered under Medicaid; and defunds Planned Parenthood, a move 75 percent of Americans oppose. Monday’s amendment goes even further to restrict women’s access to lifesaving care, particularly if they’re unemployed. Health Affairs has a good, detailed description of how the amendment slashes coverage standards for people on Medicaid in general and children in particular, who make up a disproportionate chunk of Medicaid enrollees.

    Conservatives have always hated women and children. It's in their DNA.

    The entire act is designed around the concept of gutting Medicaid, over 800 billion in cuts to the program...

    They like or tolerate their own. Others? Just not in their wheelhouse. Other faceless, nameless people, not in their circles, not connected by blood. Others are irrelevant at best, worse, a line item on a balance sheet as an EXPENSE that must be reduced or eliminated.

    Here's my question, I have to keep asking. If they eliminate the lower class who will they have to work for MINIMUM WAGE? Who will take care of their kids, flip burgers, wipe their floors and wipe their asses in the nursing home when they are on their way out??

    Um, if you can't afford to have a kid then maybe you shouldn't have them.
