This propsoal will cost more money to implement and cover fewer people! How does this promote the objectives of medicaid or 1115 waivers?

Let me repeat: Work requirements, co pays, premiums, will cost the state more money to cover less people. It is political ideology and mean spirited at that. It will create a huge bureaucracy to deny health care to people.

Aren't conservatives about smaller government? This proposal expands government. I guess bigger government is OK if it kicks poor folks off benefits they need. This is health care people! Not welfare.
