Work Requirements Will Strengthen Medicaid for Society’s Most Vulnerable

April 23, 2018
By: Akash Chougule, Americans for Prosperity

Can anti-poverty programs provide aid and enhance a sense of dignity and self-respect for low-income Americans?

History provides us with overwhelming evidence that the answer is yes, but a disappointing number of policymakers remain unconvinced.

A reminder was on full display following Indiana’s and Kentucky’s decision to include work requirements for certain Medicaid recipients. The proposed changes will apply only to able-bodied adults and will be subjected to months of review before they go into effect. But that has done little to deter critics from calling the move cruel, punishing, and mean-spirited.
