If people get kicked off medicaid, people will die. Resources that existed before the ACA don't exist anymore because they were no longer needed with so many more people were covered. If you make these changes, you will kill people.

As for the work hours, it would make people who have to balance school and part and full time work have to add another 20 hours of labor to their lives. Most minimum wage jobs don't offer the flexibility to make this possible. A full time student's schedule would not generally allow this so easily either. I personally can't afford to put 20 hours of additional work per week toward something that's not going to keep a roof over my head and keep me fed. Your proposal that this be a requirement is ridiculous.
