(Queens, N.Y.) – House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley (D-NY) released the following statement after the Trump administration issued new policy guidance that would allow states to impose work requirements on Medicaid beneficiaries:

“President Trump is reneging on the promise of America’s social safety net. These work requirements will create new barriers that severely impact the lives of low-income Americans who are trying to get and stay healthy. This an absurd decision from the Trump administration that proves its ongoing contempt for working Americans and the middle-class.”
