Napolitano: SCOTUS strikes hard against the public sector, the trade unions

Federal law generally States prohibits of skimming money from Medicaid payments is bound for independent in-home personal care workers. But in the year 2014, the Obama administration created an exception to this, namely, that States could divert some of the Medicaid money for the unions, on the theory that these workers were effectively employed in the public sector.
Eleven left-leaning States have used to increase the provision of more than $200 million per year for the trade unions by taking the health of the workers, who often do not realize it even, it, to top GOP officials.
These States include California, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Illinois — blue state, was in the midst of the recent decisions of the Supreme court, stripping power from the organised labour movement.

“The law provides that Medicaid provider must be paid directly and not part of their payments are diverted to a third party outside of a few very special exceptions,” Tim Hill, Deputy Director of the center for Medicaid and CHIP services, in a statement. “This proposed rule is to ensure that provider, you will receive your full payment, and all the circumstances in which a state is not to distract the part of the supplier payment must be clearly allowed under the law.”
“Union dues skimming directs Medicaid funds from the people to help the program.”

Ron Johnson, the Chairman of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, had pushed to take the trombone administration, measures on the issue earlier this year.

My Committee will continue to carry out the supervision of the CMS for the care of the Medicaid funds so that the American taxpayer is money that is in distress can trust.”
