Household Income and Unintended Consequences

Interesting article on the increase in people sharing housing costs:

"With the cost of living on the rise and showing no sign of slowing down, total strangers desperate to save money are moving in together.

As CBS 2’s Dana Tyler reported Tuesday, older adults and even families are using this method to pool their resources. And the new communities are redefining the modern family."

ObamaCare and most public resources are based on Household Income. How will this affect those tests?

The Census Bureau includes in a household all of the people, related and unrelated, who occupy a house, apartment, group of rooms or single room that is intended for occupancy as a separate living quarters.

Often, lack of sufficient income is what drives these people to live together; how ironic if that then disqualifies them for assistance they would otherwise get. Or how planned?
