Cotton Condemns Work Requirement Reversal 

Washington, D.C. — Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) released the following statement regarding President Biden’s decision to revoke Medicaid work requirements:

“Arkansans believe that if you’re a healthy adult without kids, you should try to work before receiving new government benefits. But President Biden doesn’t agree—he’s tearing up the Arkansas Works program, a modest plan that encourages able-bodied adults to seek employment. From the Keystone Pipeline decision to blocking work requirements, the Biden administration continues to put American workers last.”
