Trump Administration Wants American Indians to be Considered a Race Rather than Sovereign Nations - Native News Online
WASHINGTON – As a threat to tribal sovereignty, the Trump administration is attempting to strip American Indians and Alaska Natives from health care.
Politico reported Sunday, the Trump administration says Native Americans might need to get a job if they want to keep their health care.
“Tribal leaders want an exemption from new Medicaid work rules being introduced in several states, and they say there are precedents for health care exceptions. Native Americans don’t have to pay penalties for not having health coverage under Obamacare’s individual mandate, for instance.” reports Politico.
