People who are in need of healthcare through these programs already face too many hurdles. "Work for your care" does not work for the community. There are many who are unable to do so, and those that can work, do work. To say "you must work or study" places an unneccesary burden on those who cannot do either. NO other state has this 'requirement' and we in Indiana are already SO behind in our thinking on SO many public services, partially due to the backwards thinking of our former governor and his unrealistic ideals. Please do NOT pass this as a requirement for care. People will die.
