    Revised Medicaid work requirement bill moves in Michigan

    LANSING, Mich. (AP) ó More than 500,000 able-bodied, nonelderly adults in Michiganís Medicaid expansion program would have to work or meet related requirements to keep qualifying for government health insurance under a revised bill that cleared a major legislative hurdle on Wednesday and is expected to become law.
    The Republican-controlled House voted 62-47, almost entirely along party lines, to advance the measure back to the GOP-led Senate, which could vote as soon as Thursday. If Gov. Rick Snyder signs it into law, as expected, then starting in 2020, adults age 18 to 62 would have to show workforce engagement averaging 80 hours a month ó work, school, job or vocational training, an internship, substance abuse treatment or community service.

    I can see this backfiring on Snyder.

    No doubt some will lose their medical coverage which means they are out of luck right? Wrong.

    If they get sick, they'll simply head off to the local ER and get treatment for whatever their current ailment is at the time, thus overloading the system and the burden of the costs get shifted on to the taxpayer. Either way it's a no-win scenario in my opinion.
    When you cuss a farmer, don't talk with your mouth full.

    How many people will this really affect. If you are on SSI or otherwise disabled it does not apply to you. It may make it harder in the future to get onto SSI, or similar programs. But people who really are milking the system for all it is worth need to be stopped.

    I agree with you, just that I think that certain amount (the milkers) will still find a way to get medical attention if they need it. If enough can be stopped to actually make a dent in the program then I suppose it's worth the effort.
