Why are we funding Medicaid for ABLE BODIED ADULTS?

From the Article at Daily Signal:

“But health policy experts say the Medicaid expansion has been detrimental to the budgets of states that embraced it and the resources available to populations the Medicaid program initially was designed to help.

“We see this as a moral issue, because what states have done is create this new category within the Medicaid program, which is a program that was originally intended to serve [the] aged, the blind, the disabled, low-income families, pregnant women—[those] we think about as the truly needy and truly vulnerable,” Nic Horton, a senior research fellow at the Foundation for Government Accountability, told The Daily Signal.

“Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion changed that in states that accepted it,” Horton said.

In a November report, the Foundation for Government Accountability examined enrollment projections for states that expanded Medicaid.

Twenty-four states projected that 5.5 million newly eligible Americans would sign up. In reality, the number of able-bodied adults who enrolled in Medicaid was more than double that, nearing 11.5 million, according to the most recent data available.
