Robyn Pennacchia at Wonkette writes—Well This Is Just A Swell Time For Trump To Cut Healthcare Funds To California Over Abortion:

California is having a tough time. It is had extra circumstances of COVID-19 than every other state within the nation, and trails solely New York and Texas in complete deaths. In actual fact, simply two days in the past, the state confirmed greater than 61,000 circumstances in a single day.

It is actually, actually dangerous!

So if you happen to had been a traditional, compassionate human being, you’d in all probability be like, “Yeah, California positively wants healthcare. We must always positively not lower off their healthcare funding right now, significantly for a extremely silly motive.” However Donald Trump isn’t a traditional, compassionate human being. Clearly.

That’s the reason, we will assume, he’s chopping $200 million in Medicaid funding to California as a result of the state requires employers to offer well being care insurance coverage that covers abortion. On Wednesday, Trump’s Well being and Human Providers Secretary Alex Azar defined in a press launch that this violates the Weldon Modification, which “prohibits federal businesses and applications and state and native governments that obtain cash underneath the invoice from ‘discriminating’ in opposition to people, well being care amenities, insurance coverage, and different entities as a result of they refuse to offer, pay for, present protection of, or refer for abortions.”
