Court blocks Bevin's gutting of Medicaid!

Not all of the federal judiciary has been swallowed by Tea Party extremism. Today, a federal judge blocked Matt Bevin from instituting a work requirement to receive Medicaid.

The reason for the ruling seems pretty simple: It's because such a requirement doesn't advance Medicaid's legally stated objectives. Plus, Medicaid is not welfare.

There's no doubt that Bevin will appeal this ruling as far as he dares. But as far as I'm concerned, this ruling is and will always be binding law, for the statute itself is very clear.
