McCarthy Debt Bill Includes Medicaid Work Requirements
It would require Medicaid recipients to work 80 hours per month
House Speaker Kevin McCarthy released a long-awaited plan for raising the debt ceiling Wednesday, and it includes Medicaid work requirements.
The measure would require Medicaid recipients to work 80 hours per month. There are a number of exceptions, though, including for people with dependent children, those under age 19 or 56 or over, or individuals enrolled in an educational program.
Republicans argue that work requirements encourage people to get jobs to lift themselves out of poverty.
