Orwellian Notes From Brownbackistan

Posted on January 24, 2017

“Kancare” is the privatized MediCare program imposed by Brownback. It has performed abominably and hence the federal Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has refused to issue a waiver to continue it. Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) Secretary Susan Mosier withheld the letter from the Legislature for a while. Then she testified that:
1. When CMS says ” it cannot grant the state’s request at this time and it cannot formally consider the state’s request for a one-year extension,” that means approval has merely been delayed, not denied.
2. The CMS analysis made “statements of opinion rather than statements of fact.”



News flash: when a judge issues an opinion, that means you have to obey it. The same goes for official findings.
