Kellyanne Conway Lies About Medicaid, Says 'Able-Bodied' Can Find Work

Kellyanne Conway Lies About Medicaid, Says 'Able-Bodied' Can Find Work”

Conway's comments in an interview with ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos on Sunday came two days after the president announced on Twitter that he had not personally taped his conversations with Comey. However, according to Conway, the health care bill isn't actually making cuts to Medicaid; it is, instead, "slowing the rate of growth in the future" and giving individual governors "more flexibility".

"I have made clear that I want to make sure the rug is not pulled out from under Nevada or the more than 200,000 Nevadans who received insurance for the first time under Medicaid expansion", Nevada Senator Dean Heller said in a statement after the bill was released.

"We are not talking about the elderly, the children, the pregnant women, the disabled", said Conway.

When pressed by Stephanopoulos on how the proposal doesn't amount to cuts when it directly curtails funding for Medicaid, Conway said the administration sees its actions as putting Medicaid back to pre-Obamacare levels. 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.

She argued that for Medicaid to say sustainable in the long term, 'This has to happen'. I would point out for the few who say that they're now a no, you're talking about 45 or more who are now yeses.

President Trump also took to Twitter to express his happiness after meeting with the Panama President and his wife. Varela wore a green dress of similar length for the occasion.

'Medicaid is intended for the poor, the needy, the sick, and what it's done under Obamacare, it's expanded the Medicaid pool of people who "qualified" beyond that, ' Conway explained. Medicaid, over time, would be unsustainable and unaffordable because Obamacare failed to bring the costs down for health care.

In her exchange with Fox's Ainsley Earhardt, Conway absurdly claimed, "If you're able-bodied and you would like to go and find employment and have employer-sponsored benefits, then you should be able to do that".

"He has served with 30 years with distinction on the court", said Conway.

The Senate Bill has not yet been scored by the CBO but the House version will kick 23 million people off their health care.

"Well, you said everybody who is on Medicaid now is grandfathered in and is not going to face any cuts, and that simply is not factual if you have more than $800 billion in cuts", Stephanopolous said.
