I don't think it is right to expect poor parents of young children to work in order to be covered by Medicaid. Most of the jobs they would be able to get wouldn't earn them enough to afford daycare for their children while they work - and if the job did pay well, they wouldn't qualify for Medicaid, so not only would they have to pay for childcare but also health insurance - makes no sense.
