This entire story is a reminder that there is no corruption, no crime, and no venality too despicable and criminal for the intersection of Democrats and unions to carry out. This isn't an aberrant incident. There's an entire political movement across multiple states that has been engaging in the practice of forcibly 'unionizing' the parents of disabled children, children carrying for disabled parents, and other home caregivers, and then stealing their money.
It's disgusting and despicable. And if Republicans were doing it, you would be hearing about it on the news every single day.
But you haven't and won't. At least not until now when the Trump administration finally put a stop to it.
Labor organizations will no longer be allowed to skim dues money from the checks of Medicaid patients under new rules adopted by the Trump administration.
The Department of Health and Human Services's Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services adopted a new regulation that will prohibit states from siphoning money from caregiver reimbursements to third parties. The rule takes direct aim at state policies enacted to enrich union coffers.
"State Medicaid programs are responsible for ensuring that taxpayer dollars are dedicated to providing healthcare services for low-income, vulnerable Americans and are not diverted in ways that do not comply with federal law," CMS Administrator Seema Verma said in a release. "This final rule is intended to ensure that providers receive their complete payment."
Expect the media to begin rolling out arguments, using a few handpicked shills, for stealing money from the parents of disabled child.
