It’s the latest move by Trump...

Trump Administration’s New Rule Could Block Visas, Green Cards for Legal Immigrants Who Need Benefits Like Food Stamps

Trump Administration’s New Rule Could Block Visas, Green Cards for Legal Immigrants Who Need Benefits Like Food Stamps

Because the Trump administration is made of people like Stephen Miller and those who think like him, on Monday the group of evil white men and complicit white women released a new regulation that would target legal immigrants for needing government benefits.

According to CNN, the new rule would make it easier to “reject green card and visa applications” if applicants have little education,...

The Trump Administration Might Actually Help Curb HIV Transmission (Or Not)

If you were planning to play the lottery or bet on the Knicks, you might want to get to it.

There’s a decent chance the Trump administration may on the verge of doing something entirely right.

Days after Trump’s proclamation of a new initiative that would “eliminate the HIV epidemic in the United States within 10 years,” the Department of Health has unveiled an overview of the proposal, which...

President Signs Executive Order Mandating That Poor People Work or Lose ‘Welfare’

Without much fanfare (totally apropos, given what’s been happening in the world of the White House in the last 72 hours ), President Donald Trump signed an executive order Tuesday that will force recipients of Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits, Medicaid and low-income housing subsidies to find work or lose their assistance.

Executive Order Reducing Poverty in America by...

Trump to the Poor: You Must Work For Your Medicaid, Even Though 60 Percent of You Already Do

Trump to the Poor: You Must Work For Your Medicaid, Even Though 60 Percent of You Already Do

In more of his heartless-rich-whiteman shtick (except it’s obvious that he’s really all of these things), the Trump administration on Thursday announced that it will allow state-run Medicaid programs to require “able-bodied” Medicaid recipients to work, an action already co-signed by 10 states.

The new rules mandate that those who receive the health insurance based on income jump through even...

How Are The GOP Going to Make Up for Massive Tax Cuts to the Rich? Yep, Cuts to Medicaid and Welfare

How Are The GOP Going to Make Up for Massive Tax Cuts to the Rich? Yep, Cuts to Medicaid and Welfare

Isn’t it just like the GOP to run out here an issue the trashiest tax bill in the history of tax bills, a tax bill that is literally cutting taxes for the top 1% and when asked how they are going to stop driving up the national deficit—remember the Republican Party is supposed to be the party of tightening up the deficit—well, now they plan to bleed the poor dry.

Although President Trump...

White People Commit Welfare Fraud, State Creates Amnesty Program so They Won’t Go to Jail

White People Commit Welfare Fraud, State Creates Amnesty Program so They Won’t Go to Jail

Contrary to popular belief, white people do, in fact, receive welfare benefits. What may also come as a surprise is that some of them even cheat to get it, and sometimes when that happens, a local or state government may come up with a plan that will make it so the white people who commit welfare fraud don’t have to go to jail for their crimes.

Such is the case in the state of New Jersey,...

Vice President-elect Mike Pence met behind closed doors with House and Senate Republicans, and while he offered no details about what a new health care law might look like, the Washington Post reports...
