Bug, or Feature?

You be the judge:

"[Medicaid], funded jointly by the feds and the states, was devised to cover the poor. But if a provision in [ObamneyCare©] isn't changed that could be the case for people with pretty healthy incomes."


Turns out, even folks in their early 60's making as much as $60,000 a year could be eligible for Medicaid; that's because the bulk of Social Security benefits aren't taxed, so they don't count toward Medicaid eligibility.

When FoIB Holly R tipped me to this article, my response to her was "Um, as far as I can tell, that’s a FEATURE, not a BUG. Remember, the end-game here is single-payer."

'Nuff said?
