Why don't able-bodied Americans on Medicaid just get a job?! Kellyanne Conway thinks they should.

    And when those legitimate jobs do not offer insurance?

    Right, because every single job offers health insurance in alternative facts land...

    But at least get a job, doesn't mean you need to get expensive insurance. Once Obama care is replaced there might be more choices

    ......if they were able bodied, they wouldn't need Medicaid now would they?....

    I know of too many cases, way too many, who are receiving Medicaid when they are capable of holding down jobs. It has gotten out of hand just like everything else, and people being what they are have taken terrible advantage.

    The truth is nobody should depend on government subsidiary agencies. If you work your employer should provide insurance we done that for the last 40+ years.

    Conjob Conway at it again. Blaming the hardworking people who can't get by on minimum wage alone, who dont have insurance options, or the elderly who may be able bodied but certainly can't put in a 40 or 50 hour work week and who depend on medicaid for being lazy?! What an idiot.

    Umm, does she even know what she's talking about? It never ceases to amaze me how over privileged elected officials seem to think everyone on Medicaid are capable of affording or even working more than they are are and do.

    She thinks, as she stated by the way, that if you are able bodied (meaning physically capable) then you should get a job. Every job that has full time offers employee health care. This is a fact and it is a good decision to make. I agree with her, if you are capable of working then you should be working rather than collecting unemployment benefits, welfare, food stamps, and government health care. The only people who should be collecting these benefits as their sole income and health care should be the people incapable of working such as, physically handicapped people, people with a mental disorder, people who have a physical or mental issue such as. But not limited to, autism or down syndrome. If you are fully capable of having a full time job and the only thing stopping you is that you don't want to have to work then you shouldn't get a better life and free stuff that puts you ahead of all the people who do work for a living.

    Some of these comments and this woman speaking don't know a thing they are talking about. It shows that they have never had to use gov't aid. The majority of folks getting aid are people who ARE PAYING TAXES because they ARE working. How dare anyone talk down or talk negative about people who need help.....boy boy boy, you better hope one day you don't need the same help. If you don't know what the fuck you're talking about, stfd, and stfu. Period. It would be nice for people who work to afford the ins. that their employer provides but it doesn't always work out that way.

    I agree, Obama gave Medicare to anybody that signed up for it , he knew he wasn't running again but it guaranteed votes for Democrats.

    I have worked ever since I was 16 YO, usually at minimum wage and only two employers in 50 years provided health insurance, obviously Kellyanne lives in a different America than you and I, oh that's right she's a legal professional.
