I can understand Medicaid being more of a necessity as some businesses don’t offer insurance because they don’t have enough employees to make it less expensive. My concern is the welfare program. It was never meant to be a lifetime support program. Years ago it’s goal was to get people trained and in a job and off welfare. It would benefit everyone if it went back to that.
Even though my daughter is on Medicaid because of disability, I applaud this. Yes, there are always exceptions, but there should be no free handout from the government, without those getting it trying to better their situation and help provide for themselves.
In the State of Florida, if you are on Food Stamps etc... and a able body and under 49yrs of age, you are required to sign up with Florida's job search program.I am all for it!
My 80 year old mother lives off of her social security check. She does not qualify for Medicaid. By the time she pays her rent, pays for her meds, the copay on her doctor visits, utilities, she has nothing left for groceries. Why do all of these able bodied people "qualify" and my 80 year old mother doesn't?
I'm sorry but if you can attend a protest rally you can work. There are several businesses in my area that pay people to hold signs.
They also need to visit all these people on disability!!! You must understand that most of these people go through lawyers and every month those lawyers get a piece of the pie. So that is why you see all the disability lawyers advertising during mid day television. Disability is also a scam!!!
Have Medicaid receivers take a drug test & that should wipe half of them off! Might want to consider doing that for your higher up government workers as well.
actually, I believe most are already workig and lying about their income.....I have seen fraud a lot, they need to do a thorough investigation on this, a lot of those getting benefits shouldnt be
If your able to work u should! I can see an adult needing help cause u lost u r job and they might need a helping hand but not for yrs or for most of their life!
I see a lot of comments here that say they have or are witnessing fraud. This is our money being stolen.!! Time to speak up!!
