Kellyanne Conway: Those Who Lose Medicaid Can Get a Job

“If they are able-bodied and they want to work, then they’ll have employer-sponsored benefits like you and I do,” she said

Kellyanne Conway says those who lose their Medicaid coverage under the proposed Republican health care plan can find a job that provides health insurance instead.

In an interview on ABC’s This Week on Sunday, Conway, counselor to President Trump, said that Obamacare expanded Medicaid to those who did not truly need it, because they were able to work. She was defending the Senate’s proposed health care bill, which would make big cuts to Medicaid, by lowering the income limit for those who qualify, among other measures.

“Obamacare took Medicaid, which was designed to help the poor, the needy, the sick, disabled, also children and pregnant women, it took it and went way above the poverty line and opened it up to many able-bodied Americans,” she said. Those “should probably find other โ€” at least see if there are other options for them.”
