Glitch in Obama’s health care law
San Francisco Chronicle

Government number-crunchers say President Barack Obama’s health care law would let several million middle-class people get nearly free coverage by making them eligible for the Medicaid program for the poor.

The result was discovered by Medicare officials who make long-range cost estimates, after the law was signed.

It would affect about 3 million early retirees. A married couple with an annual income of $64,000 could still get Medicaid.
