    Medicaid Work Requirement Would Limit Health Care Access Without Significantly Boosting Employment

    http://www.cbpp.org/research/health/...-significantly

    The health care plan that House Republican leaders introduced in June would restructure federal funding for state Medicaid programs by capping per-beneficiary funding or converting the program to a block grant (states would have to choose one), which would lead to cuts in eligibility and benefits that would grow larger over time.[1] On top of these far-reaching changes to Medicaid’s structure, the plan also would allow states to impose work requirements on Medicaid beneficiaries, which likely would further increase the number of poor people who are uninsured.
    Most republicans probably consider this a feature rather than a bug.

    Just... atrocious and bad for the vast vast majority of people.

    What will it take for people to stop voting for these assholes?

    Yup--block grants are simply a way of killing it without openly doing so.

    And generally the reason they're on Medicaid in the first place is they aren't in a position to work, at least economically.
