#Medicaid should have no work requirements

It is stupid to require people on Medicaid to work. The vast majority of the people on Medicaid cannot work. They do not have the money to pay for health insurance because they are unable to work to make that money. And why is that? THEY ARE DISABLED. It is so obvious that it baffles me this idea is even being floated. It show how out of touch some people in Washington are. They don't know anyone on Medicaid. If they did, they wouldn't discuss such an absurd requirement.

#SSD: value of the #AppealsCouncil brief

Social Security Disability cases take several years sometimes. Even if you have your hearing, your chance at winning is now less than 50%. What does this mean? It means more cases are appealed now. Good lawyers need to be able to argue persuasively on appeal.

The Appeals Council sits in Falls Church, Virginia. They review appealed hearing decisions. They usually find the judge committed no legal error, though not always. I've had two remands in the last few months.

What's a remand? A remand is when the Appeals Council sends the case back to the judge for a re-hearing with some constraints and suggestions. Usually, the case is more favorably positioned on remand, and the judge feels somewhat rebuked. In my opinion. this means your chance at winning is greater.

What happens if you lose at the Appeals Council will be the subject of a new post.

Clown #RoyMoore (@MooreSenate) refuses to accept he lost to #DougJones or accept the will of the people

Roy Moore is a reprobate. Now he refuses to accept the will of the people. He is claiming voter fraud. What a joke. The only fraud here is the may who calls himself Judge Moore. Well...Judge Moore doesn't want to follow the laws here. That's not surprising considering he is banned from malls in Alabama.

Concede now, you sore loser.

#TaxScamBill truth #GOPTaxScam

Retweeted Selena Adera 🍩 (@Selena_Adera):

A rich white man, a working white man, and a Black Man are seated around a table. At the center is a plate holding 13 cookies.

Rich white man takes 12 cookies, then turns to working white man, and says:

"Watch out. Black Man is about to steal your cookie!"

#TomBrokaw right to say the sycophants at Fox News are on #jihad to defend Trump

Fox News is the Russian propaganda arm of Trump. They aren't objective. They are idiots. They sold America out years ago. Now the are outraged Tom Brokaw used the word Jihad. It is hilarious. They can't stand that word. They hate Islam, so this word freaks them the heck out. Keep saying it. Jihad, Jihad, Jihad. Fox News declared Jihad. Fox News is Jihad.

Shout it out!

Happy #WinterSolstice in this, the longest night, after the #TaxScamBill

The shortest day of the year is today. Stonehenge will be full if it isn't already. Festivus is coming in a few days and Christmas after that. Tonight is the longest night of the year, and I suppose that's appropriate since we are "shrouded in darkness" these days with all the goings-on in America. That sounds cliche, but it's true. The Children's'Health Insurance Program won't get funding. Children will literally die so rich people can make more money. Medicare and Medicaid will be gutted. Social Security disability will be gutted. There are no good reasons for any of it. When children start dying because of this blame the Republicans in Congress; blame Trump; blame big business; blame the Evangelicals; blame the Russians; they are all the same, and they are destroying America.

NO #NetNeutrality means you will have to pay more for less

No one wants it but the cable and internet providers. It means you will have to pay a la carte for everything. More will be paid for less services. Of course it comes on the heels of the disastrous tax bill. Great job, Congress, you've done another dumb thing. Are you trying to ruin the country further? Congress people, you are the true deplorables in the United States. Well...the president* and his band of merry men (and terrible women) are in the same category. Of course, the supporters of the president* are the worst ones possible. They are the depraved, gladiator-loving Roman rabble.
