    AP NewsBreak: A twist in Obama's health care law

    WASHINGTON President Barack Obama's health care law would let several million middle-class people get nearly free insurance meant for the poor, a twist government number crunchers say they discovered only after the complex bill was signed.
    The change would affect early retirees: A married couple could have an annual income of about $64,000 and still get Medicaid, said officials who make long-range cost estimates for the Health and Human Services department.
    Up to 3 million more people could qualify for Medicaid in 2014 as a result of the anomaly. That's because, in a major change from today, most of their Social Security benefits would no longer be counted as income for determining eligibility. It might be compared to allowing middle-class people to qualify for food stamps.

    Yes, the more we know about Obamacare, the more we realize... what a pile of **** it was.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Suuuuuurre! What an "accident."

    If you strike me down, I'll become more powerful than you could possibly imagine.

    Awesome. Here's hoping that they find even more "glitches" that cover even more people so that they don't have to worry about losing their life savings due to catastrophic or even not-so-catastrophic health issues.

    We cannot afford it. So you hate America and want to enslave future Generations to unsustainable debt?

    Yes... because I am, somehow, responsible for providing health care to these people.

    So long as it brings more people to vote Democrat, they don't really care.

    Right, but we CAN afford trillions of dollars in unnecessary wars? C'mon... change that old broken record.

    How about the fact that these "future generations" are likely to lose what little inheritance that their parents can pass on as estates are eaten up to pay off medical bills? Of course, that only really affects lower and middle class so who gives a flying ****, amiright?

    We all pay for **** we don't want. That's an inherent part of being a society. If you don't like it, move to some country with less government interference like Somalia or Afghanistan.

    in this case, your tax dollars are, yes. It's naive to think otherwise. Where do you think the money comes from? Obama's ass?
