Trump Just Lost A Big Case On Taking Away Medicaid Coverage

BY†JASON EASLEY at PoliticusUSA

"SNIP.....

One of the most conservative judges in the country ruled against a Trump administration effort to allow the states to throw millions off Medicaid.

Vox reported:

One of the most conservative judges in the country just handed down an opinion saying that the Trump administration acted illegally when it permitted the state of Arkansas to strip health coverage from thousands of Medicaid beneficiaries.

Judge David Sentelleís opinion in Gresham v. Azar, on behalf of himself and two of his colleagues on the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, is significant in its own right. But it is also significant because it suggests that the Trump administration will have a tough time defending its conduct if this case is heard by the Supreme Court.

The heart of the ruling is that Trump canít toss out the objectives of Congress and replace them with his own. In other words, Congress makes the laws and Trump implements them. The President does not have the power to changes the legislative objectives that are passed by Congress.

Eighteen thousand people would have lost their Medicaid coverage in Arkansas, and without this ruling other larger red states would have followed Arkansas. The result would have been millions of Americans without health insurance coverage.

2. Republicans will continue the assault, so Democrats must continue to protect.

They will not give up in their assaults on citizens.

3. I hope those in AR sue the state for acting so prematurely, prior to rump's edict being ruled ...

on by the courts. The state deserves to lose big time, in cutting off its' own residents off of healthcare.

14. Didn't the courts also strike down that blatant attempt at overreach?

Obviously, the number one method of putting a halt to our march toward a totalitarian fascist state is the election in November. In the meantime, itís the judiciary which has been our last bulwark of protection.

This is particularly interesting to me, as it confirms a lesson we learned early in law school. On the first day of Con Law, our professor asked the class who we felt the most powerful person in the country was. Long before the end of the semester the answer (which no one had proffered in response to the Day 1 question) was abundantly clear ó a Supreme Court Justice. Congress can enact all the laws it wants and the President can take all the actions he or she wants, but whether those laws and actions stand or are struck down is ultimately determined by the Judiciary Branch of our government.

15. And it's the Judiciary which has the power to stop such blatant attempts to overstep his authority

The cherry on top is that it was a staunchly conservative judge who wrote this opinion. As weíve seen to date and, I believe, will for the most part continue to see, is that the Judiciary is an independent Branch of government which wonít kowtow to the Executive (or Legislative) Branch. The system of checks and balances still lives to a degree, although its continued survival is tenuous.

16. I can't wait until all those unqualified hacks posing as judges are

exposed and removed. I'm betting there are many scandals that will help bring them down

17. SSI,SSDI medicaid,Medicate,food stamps

Are the backbone of the economy.
Why? Because most of what people get from these programs goes right back into the economy.

Because of checks being so minimal, being this poor makes sure every dollar gets budgeted and spent. By time the month is over, I'm broke.

Living on SSI is not easy. Medicare helps me alot,and I am grateful for these programs. I'd probably be dead without them.

Good on the judge who shot trump down
