"And now here's our news roundup i'm now joined in politicos glass enclosed newsroom by sarah karlin smith our east of farm a reporter back from a conference hey dan to beer and russian approach on our states reporter who's looking especially fashionable today for a secret photoshoot that were not allowed to talk about on the podcast you'll see more stephen about that very croats all i have to say thank you dan for having me were not allowed to scoop russia's russia's voters one one big story this week has to do with what's coming out of the states and specifically on medicaid and rocked this is right in your wheelhouse you at the scoop here last week the trump administration on monday said that arkansas would be the third state allowed to impose work requirements in its medicaid program there some corks in terms of timing but is is this just the new normal rush every week there's going to be every month going to be a new state allowed by the trump administration to change its programme like this i'm sure that every republican governor who has asked for work requirement would love it if every week cms said yes to them we'll see about the timing but i do think yes i'm were requirements are pretty standard honestly at this point and it's no secret that um um the administration as saying yes because they've made it clear that that the goal of theirs are that being said we do have litigation that's out there so but whether they will actually go into effect we have to see i am i would say that you know arkansas in particular was interesting not just because they got a work requirement but because they were i think it perhaps the first instance at i can think of where a republican governor asked the administration for something and didn't get it um uh is a hutchinson wanted to uh essentially lower the number of people who were eligible for medicaid expansion in that state by capping the income limit at a lower level um cms didn't explicitly say no but they punted on it um and i think my understanding based on talks i've had with people is up there very unlikely to they being the administration to grant that so you know i think.

"Now it's time to roll it all back together we regard to deliver real change that once again puts america first that begins with immediately repealing and replacing the disaster known as obamacare but it wasn't so simple repeal and replace is a slogan it's not actual public policy rodney lock who spent twenty years is a top congressional staffer specializing in health care explains in the challenge they faced was when they tried to change that slogan into real policy it became much more difficult than they thought it would be now they've got very close the house of representatives passed a bill and the senate knocked on the door a couple of times but one two three members were the difference between success and failure all very close very very tight budget president trump won the white house by touting his dealmaking credential but on health care he could not outmaneuver members of his own party we all learned a lot but there was action outside of the congress as sarah karlin smith this explains on the legislative side you could say their aim to go after obamacare was probably a failure but on the administrative side through the executive branch they actually were fairly successful so one of the most recent things in the big tax reform package that was passed in the us is they got rid of the individual mandate which is a requirement that you have to have health insurance coverage in the us or i'll see you pay a fine and that scene as being a big hit two obama care for much of 2017 the health care debate in washington was on abstract one how involved.

"Tobacco companies one of the cdc's priorities is reducing tobacco use sarah karlin smith has been on the story for politico where she covers healthcare thanks for joining us thanks for having me tell me what brenda fitzgerald was invested in and why it was perceived at least to be a conflict of interest short so before she came into office benefits child had a rare e beg stock portfolio and the included everything from tobacco stocks to food companies all these areas in which this this center for disease control prevention plays a huge role and then while she was already in office she bought new socks in these areas and that really i think set off alarm bells for people that she was continuing to make stock purchases in these conflicts particularly tobacco stocks which is such a big area for cdc in terms of encouraging antismoking efforts and so bad dynamic really caused her big problem one of the producers your marketplace when he saw his story pointed out you know probably a lot of us who are you know passive investors with 401 qaiser index funds have some kind of investment in tobacco companies how is this different than that so these are not index signs our mutual funds these are specific separate stock holdings and so the federal government would allow somebody in her position to own an index mind our fund with multiple different stocks and that wouldn't be seen as a conflict but owning the individual stock would be the other thing here and cdc director brennan fitzgerald through spokesperson at hhs they told us that her financial advisor made the purchases and and talking to ethics officials it would have been her responsibility to let her financial advisor no so regardless of whether she was giving direct to sign off are not there's a certain responsibility here for her to make sure she's not purchasing financial investments that interfere with her job there have been questions about other administration officials and their divestment from industries they're currently over seeing why does brenda fitzgerald lose her job you know i think that's a really great question hhs was already under a lot of scrutiny because tom price it's first secretary under the trump administration resigned after he was found to be taking private planes they just got a new hhs secretary who may wanna kind.
