Those Who Lose Health Coverage Should Find Jobs

"These are not cuts to Medicaid,"Conway told George Stephanopoulos on ABC's This Week". However, the Senate bill would allow states to apply for waivers so insurance companies could deny coverage for a list of Essential Health Benefits, including outpatient, mental health, maternity, and emergency room care, among others.

If their Medicaid is taken away, as Trump and congressional Republicans want, these people will be uncovered and without care. "You have to look at the whole health care bill in order to have a full conversation". "Obamacare expanded the pool of Medicaid recipients beyond its original intentions", Conway said. 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.

"You know, Obamacare took Medicaid - which was created to help the poor, the needy, the elderly, the sick, the disabled also children, and pregnant women - it took it, and it went way above the poverty line and opened it up to many able-bodied Americans who should probably find other - should at least see if there are other options for them", she said. "Then they'll have employer-sponsored benefits like you and I do".

If only it were that easy. According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, only 46% of employers offer health care coverage.

It isn't that the people on Medicaid don't work.

"Let's remember why we're doing this: ObamaCare is unaffordable, unsustainable", Conway said, pointing out that millions of Americans have opted out of ObamaCare, while dozens of insurers have left the exchanges.

During an appearance on Fox and Friends, Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway told all of the people who are going to lose their healthcare because of Trump to get a job.

Trump in a pair of tweets on Thursday wrote: "With all of the recently reported electronic surveillance, intercepts, unmasking and illegal leaking of information, I have no idea whether there are "tapes" or recordings of my conversations with James Comey, but I did not make, and do not have, any such recordings".

"What is Sen. Durbin doing?" she said. But when the CBO analyzed the House version of the legislation, which envisions slightly less severe cuts over time, it predicted the bill would mean 14 million fewer Americans would have coverage under Medicaid by 2026.
