Both the Republican House and Senate versions of healthcare reform to replace and repeal Obamacare include plans to phase out the Medicaid expansion and cap federal spending on the program. According to projections from the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office, 15 million will lose their Medicaid coverage as a result. Medicaid serves low income families and covers populations from newborn babies and children with special needs to elderly residents in nursing homes. However, one population that may be flying under the radar is millennials, who could be disproportionally impacted by this proposal. Jen Mishory is the Executive Director and Co-Founder of Young Invincibles, a group that began during the healthcare debates in 2009 and is focused on economic millennial issues. She meets with Soledad O’Brien to talk about how the Affordable Care Act and the GOP proposals impact millennials.
