GOP Senator to CNN Anchor: 'Kellyanne Conway Is Not the GOP'

And what it's done, under Obamacare, is it's expanded the Medicaid pool of people who quote "qualify" beyond that.

"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. 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.

"Obamacare took Medicaid, which was created to help the poor, the needy, the sick, disabled, also children and pregnant women, it took it and went way above the poverty line and opened it up to many able-bodied Americans", said Ms. Conway.

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".

"And, George, you have to look at the whole health care bill, 142 pages in total here to have a full conversation".

If only it were that easy. The report also found that only 63 percent of Americans who worked for companies that offered health benefits received health coverage from their employers.

According to the Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF), 59 percent of Medicaid adults have jobs, and almost 80 percent are part of working families.

"You keep calling them as cuts, but we don't see them as cuts".

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

'It's not a lie, ' Conway insisted during an appearance on Fox & Friends.

Conway argued that if the country stayed the course, 'Medicaid, over time, would be unsustainable and unaffordable'.

"This is to improve healthcare, to make it more free market, more patient-centered, to give people more choices", Conway said on the GOP's plan.

"I respectfully disagree with her analysis", Collins said. "Nothing in the GOP Senate bill addresses the issue of higher costs", she said, adding as she is won't to do, that Congress should work on reducing the price of prescription drugs.

The non partisan Congressional Budget Office estimated that the House version of the bill would cut Medicaid spending by $880 billion, which President Donald Trump accounted for in his budget.
