    WASHINGTON — After allowing states to impose work requirements for Medicaid enrollees, the Trump administration is now pondering lifetime limits on adults’ access to coverage.

    Capping health care benefits – like federal welfare benefits – would be a first for Medicaid, the joint state and federal health plan for low-income and disabled Americans.

    If approved, the dramatic policy change would recast government-subsidized health coverage as temporary assistance by placing a limit on the number of months adults have access to Medicaid benefits.

    The move would continue the Trump administration’s push to inject conservative policies into the Medicaid program through the use of federal waivers, which allow states more flexibility to create policies designed to promote personal and financial responsibility among enrollees.

    From "The Pusher"... Steppenwolf

    You know, I've seen a lot of people walkin' 'round
    With tombstones in their eyes
    But the GOP don't care
    Ah, if you live or if you die

    God damn, the GOP
    God damn, I say the GOP
    I said God damn, God damn the GOP

    The real death panels.

    The Democrats should hammer the GOP on this, using their old language and tie it around their necks till they choke on it.
