Kellyanne Conway says people who lose Medicaid should just find better jobs

White House Senior Adviser Kellyanne Conway denied that the Senate's health care bill would cut Medicaid, even though the draft revealed Thursday suggests otherwise.

"It's not a lie", Conway told Fox News' "Fox & Friends" program. In fact, this is slowing the growth of Medicaid and allowing governors more flexibility in their states to be able to give the dollars out as they - because they're closest to the people in need.

She went on to claim that Obamacare grew the people on Medicaid, while the GOP healthcare plan seeks to get people off the plan who she said shouldn't be on in the first place. "We're not talking about the elderly, the children, the pregnant women, the disabled".

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.

"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.

During an interview on ABC "This Week" program, Conway had to answer some hard questions relating cuts to Medicaid in the Better Health Care Act?

"Obamacare took Medicaid, which was created to help the poor, the needy, the elderly, the sick, disabled, also children and pregnant women, it took it and went way above the poverty line to many able-bodied Americans who should probably find other-at least see if there are other options for them", Conway told ABC's George Stephanopolous.
