Alabama House Minority Leader Anthony Daniels believes there’s a misunderstanding about Medicaid and who it serves. “Currently children, pregnant women, and the disabled are the only individuals that can receive Medicaid,” he said. “So this idea that individuals are front of their televisions flipping through the channels every day and not working purposely – it’s just not true.”
