Perfectly reasonable to require able bodied Medicaid recipients to work and pay premiums just like the rest of us who actually work and have to pay premiums from insurance we get from our own jobs.  Not sure why this is so controversial.

2018 should still be very strong for the market and I predict another 10-15% gain since the tax bill opens the way for repatriation of overseas cash which will inject a massive amount of capital into the economy.  The economy is still smoking with unemployment remain at 4.1% with  record lows in black and hispanic unemployment

 

2019 could be dicey, especially if the Democrats regain majority in the House, though I actually think Democratic optimism is a bit too unbridled.  The media has done a great job demonizing anyone who expresses any support about Trump so I think there are a lot of folks like myself who viewing his overall performance with an objective eye, who can understand that there some clear positives in his first year and do see there is some basis for Trump's disdain for the media (rampant sexual harassment issues, false reporting by major news networks).  I think there are a significant number of hidden mainstream Trump supporters who just aren't open about it due to fears of social and work backlash.

Those job cuts are workers involved in the Direct TV acquisition.    Job cuts after mergers are unavoidable but the overwhelming balance is quite positive (AT&T committed to creating 7,000 new jobs as well).

 

Say what you want about Trump, but he has had one of the most successful first years from an economic standpoint for any president in recent memory.

Let the trickle down begin:

 

AT&T announces $1,000 bonus for 200,000 workers.

 

Comcast also announces $1,000 bonus for 100,000 workers and pledges $50 billion over five years for infrastructure investment adding thousands of jobs

 

Boeing pledges $300 million investment in worker training, facility upgrades, and matching of worker charitable contributions

 

Fifth Corp Bancorp announces raising minimum wage to $15/hour (something Democrats have prioritized) and $1,000 bonus to 13,500 workers

 

Wells Fargo also announces raising minimum wage to $15/hour and commits to charitable giving of $400 million.

You mean like these folks?   https://www.washingt...0000-employees/

 

As a bonus, after years of rising crime and murder rates under Obama,  violent crime is in decline after only a year under Trump.
