Well, they had to pass the bill, so we could see what's in the bill.

What a surprise.


What did you expect from the government? Real help for people who needed it? Ha!

you need a strong middle class to evolutionize the lower and upper class to thrive...
Though it is yes, quite messed up and it really gets me

Maybe this will jump start some good old class warfare. You know, the one that got Obama into office in the first place.

So this is Obama endorsing Social Darwinism in it's Ugly Face Perhaps? (The Strong Survive while Weak Suffer)

What youll see is even more Drs drop medicaid patients. Pay is slow and etc to the office/hospital.Seems as if someone feels that 64K a year will be poverty level in a short while.. and NOT middle class.

I'm so sick of the welfare and medical policies, i know there is some people who really need the help but i can't stand when I'm in line at the grocery store and i see a women all dressed in expensive clothes her hair colored nails done holding her $400 dollar coach bag while buying her groceries with food stamps with her man on the side of bagging the groceries.

I couldn't find anywhere in the article that said they were cutting from the poor, only that more people qualified than they wanted.

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.

"After initially downplaying any concern, the Obama administration said late Tuesday it would look for a fix."

seems to be a loop hole that sorta got through because nobody seems to read this silly things when they pass it through . I could just imagine these punks in there offices when there signing papers...

do you think they roll there eyes yell lalalalalala and sign as fast as they can and time it lol

im still surprised in 2011 such "smart" men in political office let such things slip through...

or do they !

well have to wait to see what mr obama does with it. fast response i'll give him a pass .....

slow response then we got a problem mr president

this is what you get when you dont read the bills.

this you know about but consider the thousands of pages of the care act who knows what else is in it.

what this means is the rich and the middle class will be paying for it and more than they think they are going to.

i have yet seen any government program help people all they do is hurt them.

end the governments reign of terror for crying outloud.

just say no to government knowing best and you dont know jack.

This is fine, everything is exactly how its suppose to be.
We're unemployed or under employed,
We're homeless or losing our home,
We're hungry or being told we need permission to garden,
We're a war nation attacking at will anywhere but on the look out for terrorists,
We're breathing radiation or swimming in corexit,
We're sick and dying and forced into buying gmo food stuff and healthcare,
But we're broke,
Just seems like a really strong set up for a really hard fall has been taking place over the last 12 years.

(but there's tv and beer and movies and walmart, happy 4th of july)

I think you're failing to realize that the middle class is the poor. There is no big degree of separation between the two.

Is this good for any of us...No! Those of us in the middle class will not be effected much, if at all, by this.

The "mistake" as article states, if not corrected more people who would normally not qualify will be given the benefits. The middle class is all but poor now and if not at the moment may be in the near future(middle class jobs are projected to be the next big job losses), 'cept if you're making 40 thousand plus a year and given Medicare while someone who lives below poverty because of disability, has all benefits cut, there's something wrong. In turn, I guess the poor will have to buy Obama care or be fined and go to jail, all in the plan?

What middle class?

You think Obama is trying to keep the class that pays all the bills healthy? Why would he do that? Yeah, let's give it to those who don't want to work and don't want to pay for, let's take care of the illegal immigrants. We can't neglect inmates! We can than tell the middle class to work harder if they want their own.

I don't know if this mean's much, but it is a interesting scenario.

All of this happening after Fukushima Disaster. Perhaps they do know more than they are letting on. With the projected fallout happening, they are pulling the plug on heath care aid.

Probably not the case, But still an interesting thought
