Current Medicaid recipients are not eligible for the ACA enrollment.
Stop spreading fear and lies, but then I guess then you wouldn't be eligible to register as a Republican.

That's not what she said. In fact, she's absolutely correct:
Matt Salo, executive director of the National Association of Medicaid Directors, said, "We're seeing a huge spike in terms of Medicaid enrollments."

He says the numbers have surprised him and state officials.

CBS News has confirmed that in Washington, of the more than 35,000 people newly enrolled, 87 percent signed up for Medicaid. In Kentucky, out of 26,000 new enrollments, 82 percent are in Medicaid. And in New York, of 37,000 enrollments, Medicaid accounts for 64 percent.

87% makes for a healthy majority I would say.
