A safety net, not a hammock

Great news for taxpayers! The Michigan state Senate over the last few weeks has made significant progress on a common sense reform to respect your tax dollars and ensure they’re spent wisely.
Senate Bill 897, sponsored by state Sen. Mike Shirkey, would require those in our state who can work to complete at least 29 hours of work, job training, or education per week in order to qualify for Medicaid.

Medicaid workforce engagement requirements for able bodied adults will grow our economy, cut government spending, and protect Michigan taxpayers. We are proud of Senator Shirkey and his colleagues for their important work on this issue, and are working hard to ensure your tax dollars are respected when it comes to a vote in the state House.
We can all agree there is a need for a safety net, but it shouldn't be a hammock.
Not surprisingly, Gretchen Whitmer, Democrat legislators, and their allies in the media have never met a government program they don’t want to expand and are taking their well-traveled path down the low road to ensure the government just keeps on spending your money.
We’re not intimidated by their lies and look forward to fighting for this common-sense reform on your behalf.
