Washington, DC — Today, the DC Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously upheld Judge James Boasberg’s decision in Gresham v. Azar striking down the Trump administration’s “arbitrary and capricious” Medicaid work requirements. In response, Protect Our Care Executive Director Brad Woodhouse issued the following statement: 

“Again and again the courts have ruled against the Trump administration’s burdensome paperwork requirements that are meant to boot people off the Medicaid rolls, but that hasn’t stopped them from continuing to push the policy, as they did earlier this week in their budget proposal. After today’s decision, it’s clearer than ever that the Trump administration and their Republican allies across the country should drop their relentless war on Medicaid and American health care once and for all.”
