"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 to many able-bodied Americans who. should at least see if there are other options for them". You yesterday on Sunday shows were saying that is not true, no cuts.
