Kellyanne Conway to Medicaid patients: Just go get another job

"These are not cuts to Medicaid, George". "This slows the rate for the future and it allows governors more flexibility with Medicaid dollars, because they're closest to the people in need". "We're not talking about the elderly, the children, the pregnant women, the disabled". Conway said. "Bought healthcare through the market". And while its still unclear exactly how the GOP healthcare bills now in legislation will effect both sick and able-bodied individuals now covered by Obamacare's expanded Medicaid coverage, this clip feels like something we might see aired over and over again for the next few years. You need 50 votes from senators.

"In states that choose these waivers, insurers could decide not to cover expensive cancer therapies", said Heddie Sumpter with the American Cancer Society Action Network, one of a number of health care organization who have come out in opposition to the Senate bill.

Conway argued that if the country stayed the course, 'Medicaid, over time, would be unsustainable and unaffordable'. Under the Senate bill, like its House counterpart, the federal government would withdraw those extra funds, forcing most of the 31 states (plus the District of Columbia) that accepted the money to roll back their expansions partly or entirely. In 2014, just 30 percent of working adults with incomes at or below the poverty line had employer-sponsored coverage available to them. There's 52 Republican senators.

"We also heard the House bill was never going to pass".

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway Monday defended comments she made on a weekend show about the future of Medicaid under the Senate's healthcare reform bill, denying claims that she lied when she said people now receiving benefits would not lose their services.

Only last week, the Sena claimed that it could take an independent line on presidential elections , creating a flutter in the BJP. BJP sources said the nomination would be filed before Prime Minister Narendra Modi leaves on his three-nation foreign tour.

She went on to claim that Obamacare grew the people on Medicaid, while the GOP healthcare plan seeks to get people off the plan who she said shouldn't be on in the first place. "We're talking about in the future", she said.

She added: "If they are able-bodied and they want to work, then they'll have employer-sponsored benefits like you and I do".

"Kellyanne, hold on a second".

On Sunday, two officials with the Trump administration denied the bill will severely cut Medicaid. The people who the expansion helped, she said, would initially be grandfathered in but should consider other options. Because ObamaCare failed to bring the costs down for health care, so these states are having very hard time meeting the bills.
