Washington, DC — Following the Trump Administration’s decision today to approve a cap on Medicaid enrollment and impose dangerous Medicaid work requirements in Utah in as many days as similar requirements in Kentucky and Arkansas were struck down by a federal judge, Protect Our Care chair Leslie Dach released the following statement:

“Two days after a federal judge ruled the Trump Administration’s dangerous Medicaid work requirements illegal, Seema Verma is at it again, trying to impose the same work requirements in Utah. If Administrator Verma spent less time spending millions of dollars on her image consultants and more time understanding her duties as CMS administrator, she might realize these work requirements are not only illegal, but extremely harmful to Americans.”
