Eric Cantor claims that no one wants to go on Medicaid. Really? I wonder if those with no insurance at all or with their premiums going through the roof that might prefer that option would agree with you? He also says the GOP wants "more people uninsured". As Media Matters asked, Freudian slip?

CANTOR: ...the, the reality is, and take a little bit a different approach here and difference with that statement, the reality is Republicans do care about health care. We want to address the first and most foundational element which is cost, because if we can bring down costs, more people can access care. But we also know that there is something we need to do to get more people on insured. The problem is with the president's bill, it's about expanding Medicaid. No one wants to, to go onto Medicaid. That's why physicians in Florida and other states are leaving Medicaid in droves because of the imperfect reimbursement structure. That's what this bill is about is expanding the government programs that don't work. We need real reform to bring down costs.
