Trump Is Cutting Off Big Labor From Skimming Americans’ Medicaid Payments And Unions Are Furious

Quote
The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) is blistering at a proposed regulation that would prevent the union from siphoning fees from American workers’ Medicaid payments.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services announced a proposed rule Tuesday that would require Medicaid payments to go directly to healthcare workers, ending a 2014 Obama-era rule that let third parties, such as unions and insurance companies, skim off a share of the paycheck before the worker saw any of it.

The SEIU, one of the largest public-sector unions in the U.S., referred to the proposed rule “as part of the [Trump] administration’s broad, coordinated attack against working people.”

Though the Obama rule legalizing the practice went into effect in 2014, unions have been skimming money from Medicaid payments for nearly two decades, according to Freedom Foundation director for labor policy Maxford Nelson.

The practice has netted unions billions of dollars from public-sector home healthcare workers forced to pay union dues or “agency fees” equivalent to 85 percent of a dues payment to cover the cost of representation for non-members.

Trump must have a giant matrix of "things to do" that makes up his restoration of conservative-constitutional things that Obama effed up.

It's just a non-stop flow of single items like this, all of which make total sense, but they couldn't just be dreamed up daily.  He must have a catalogue of things that must be remedied while he's prez.

I suspect they will try, but I do not see how the libs can bash president Trump on this one without looking like the grinch.

I suspect that such a cosmic to-do list has been in the works behind the scenes for a long time now..

Its a shame that most of these awesome changes will go unoticed by all the uninformed sheep, on both sides. It is just getting lost in all the drama and stuff. But the end result shld get everyones attention...
