Nationally, 64% are working full time. Another 13% work part time. Only 22% do not work at all.

The net is a wonderful thing, part two: Medicaid recipients broken down by age group (elderly, children, adults and disabled).

The previous table showed that, nationally, 22% of adult Medicaid recipients do not work. This table shows that, nationally, 14% of adult Medicaid recipients are disabled.

So all this screaming is about 8% of Medicaid recipients who are able bodied adults who do not work.

I wonder if there is data on the number of able bodied adults on Medicaid who do not work, that are on Medicaid for more than a few months?

But, in the US' puritanical, punishment oriented culture, it looks good for politicians to beat up on a minority subset of the population.
