Kellyanne Conway: Explain Ignorant Medicaid Jobs Comment

Target: Kellyanne Conway, White House Counselor

Goal: Explain your claim that Medicaid recipients can easily find jobs that offer health insurance.

Kellyanne Conway recently suggested that people on Medicaid could find jobs that offer health insurance, in the event that they lose coverage under the new Republican healthcare plan. Conway also said that the Affordable Care Act’s expansion of Medicaid allowed able-bodied people to take advantage of the system.

“If they are able-bodied,” she said, “and they want to work, then they’ll have employer-sponsored benefits like you and I do.” The truth is that the majority of Americans on Medicaid do have jobs — often part-time or low-paying jobs that don’t offer health insurance.
The suggestion that most Americans who will lose Medicaid coverage under Trumpcare are 1) able to work and 2) can find employer-sponsored health insurance showcases Conway’s ignorance of the reality for most Americans, and a similar ignorance on behalf of the entire Trump administration. Add your name to the petition below to demand that Conway explain the reasoning behind her claim.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Ms. Conway,

In a recent interview, you suggested that Medicaid recipients who could lose coverage under Trumpcare could find jobs that offer health insurance. Furthermore, you implied that Obamacare’s expansion of Medicaid coverage allowed able-bodied Americans to abstain from working.

Most Americans on Medicaid do, in fact, work, but many have jobs that do not offer health insurance coverage. Your implication that those who are able to work can find jobs with health coverage shows a distinct lack of understanding about the reality for working Americans. I urge you to further investigate the facts about Medicaid and explain your statements.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
