64% Say ‘Yes’ To Work Requirements For Medicaid Recipients

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 64% of American Adults think that childless, able-bodied adults in their state should be required to work as a condition for receiving Medicaid. Just 22% disagree, while 14% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
