Skip to comments.In a rebuke to Trump, ...Brown signs bans on short-term health plans, Medi-Cal work requirements

As a left-leaning state that has embraced the expansion of Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act, California is unlikely to pursue work requirements for that program. But with the Trump administration backing efforts by a handful of states to impose such requirements, backers of the measure said it was important to enshrine in state law that California would not do the same.
Critics have said that work requirements will limit the care of those unable to work, including those with chronic physical ailments, mental illness or substance abuse problems. Four states have already taken action to move toward work mandates, though a federal judge has ruled against the effort in Kentucky.
Brown also signed a second Hernandez bill on Saturday inspired by efforts from the Trump administration to change key components of the Affordable Care Act. Under Senate Bill 910, California will not allow the sale of short-term health plans as a cheap alternative to the federal healthcare law enacted by President Obama in 2010.
Short-term plans are less pricey than plans sold through state health insurance exchanges such as Covered California. But they often lack a number of benefits, including coverage for maternity care, mental health services or preexisting conditions. The Obama administration prohibited insurers from offering those plans for longer than three months.

Nope, no bias there.
Years ago, in the mid 1990s, I suggested that if illegal immigration continued, California was headed toward being either a part of Mexico or it’s own nation.
Folks said, “You’re crazy.”
Here we are.
Last time I checked, CA can’t print money.
Trump’ll have the last laugh.
Sorry Governor Moonbeam. You’re doing more harm to the people of your State, than you are to President Trump.
Not that people in California care. All they care about is “Sticking it to ‘The Man’”
This isn’t against Trump as much as it’s against America. Moonbeam is 100% Anti-American. Pure communist filth.
In this case, it’s the man (Brown) sticking it to them.
Why is that a rebuke. Each state can make their own requirements. Thats the whole point. If Moonbeam wants his taxpayers to pick up the tab thats their choice.
As an Arizonan Im going to tell every welfare recipient I can find that the Golden State is offering Free Everything
How is it a “rebuke” to Trump to screw (the remaining) California taxpayers???? It’s an “FU” to taxpayers!
Well our GOP in this state failed. Bigly.
In a strong rebuke to Trump, Brown shoots himself. Thats courage right there!!
One more reason to cut of ALL FEDERAL FUNDING to Collapsefornia.
They do so at their own peril. I feel bad for the normal people who still live there.
I agree. It has essentially been non-existant since shortly after the Reagan years.
You never hear a peep out of the state leadership.
Well judging from “Ah-Nold”, there really isn’t much difference, anyway.
In a rebuke to younger Californians ... Brown signs bans on short-term health plans ...
In rebuke to Brown/Democrats, California taxpayers fleeing the state in droves.
The once-Golden State is headed next to Calizuela.
