Another win for President Joe Biden is another loss for the American people and the power of work.
Biden’s Department of Justice successfully asked the Supreme Court of the United States to cancel oral arguments for a lawsuit brought by Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge. Rutledge, from the only state that had actually implemented work requirements in Medicaid before litigation, asked the court to allow her state to keep its Medicaid work requirements. Why? They were working.
Last month the Foundation for Government Accountability filed an amicus curiae brief with the court to support Rutledge and provide the data and substance that supports states seeking to improve health outcomes and strengthen their Medicaid programs.
