It gets worse.
First Bevin holds the healthcare coverage of almost a half-million people hostage if he doesn’t get his way: Gov. Matt Bevin says he will end Kentucky’s expanded Medicaid program that provides health coverage for more than 400,000 low-income people if a court blocks the work requirements
Last week a federal court ruled that the work requirements and resulting coverage losses run contrary to Medicaid’s core purpose, that being “providing healthcare to the poor”.
In retaliation, Bevin has started shooting the hostages. In what was described as a “Trumpian tantrum” that comes just days after a federal judge struck down his attempt to impose work requirements on his state’s 1.4 million Medicaid recipients, Kentucky’s Republican Gov. Matt Bevin on Monday completely canceled dental and vision coverage for 460,000 Kentuckians.
At least now the poors won’t be able to see their teeth falling out…
