And btw. When trump gave companies back some money. What did they do? Buy back stock. And I'm pretty sure that money went into executive bonuses as well.
If you want more jobs. You need to put more money into the hands of the middle class. When the middle class has more money to purchase food, luxuries etc. Then companies have to hire workers.

Most co-payments will be between $1 and $8, but inpatient services, such as hospital admissions or mental health and substance abuse admissions, will be $50.
I'm confused if this applies to Kentucky only, or it's a federal policy, applying to all states.
At any rate, it targets the metally ill the most. That can't be good for society, in the end. If you want to tackle the opiod crises and drug abuse, you have to tackle metal health as well. Putting those services out of financial reach to the most vulnerable doesn't seem smart.
Some people are just so miserable they have to make everyone around them miserable. The internet just gives them a way to express their inner sociopath.

What your suggesting, debtors prisons and poor farms were abolished nearly 2 centuries ago.
People who lack empathy and compassion for others who suffer from poor health tend to be hateful and generally intolerant of most everyone and everything.
I've lived long enough to see such peoples hatred consume them and make them sick.
As far as only the wealthy being allowed to have children, 99.9 percent of all couples starting families aren't prepared for the expense of children, it's how it's been for as long as humans have been procreating.
I don't know what world you live in but I'm certainly glad it's not mine.
The farm bill passed by the House called for many food stamp recipients to be locked out of the program for up to three years if they fail to work or enroll in job training.

People think the poor are entitled for not wanting to starve to death. The rich are the most entitled people in the country. They think they don't have to contribute to society. They think we're here just to serve them. I've been around rich people you can smell the arrogance. They only people who really know the American dream is them. They get all the tax breaks and laws written in their favor. They don't know what hardship is. Try watching someone you love lose everything they worked as they're dying. They can't pay their bills because their too sick to work. Yet you jerks want to chastise people for taking a hand out. You better hope you don't have to learn what hardship is
Don't think you're immune to falling on hard times. Most people in this country are one pay check away from disaster. Smoke cigarettes drink beer eat fatty foods or hell just drink your tap water. Cancer can creep up on you at any time. Better hope you have one hell of a savings and everything paid for. Don't think it can't happen to you. Those food stamps and medicaid you pay for you might need them someday.
