No, you were incorrect. Many - possibly the majority - of the people that obtain health insurance because of the PPACA, it will be free.

Here's my problem with your remark. It doesn't fit Mitt. Mitt made no distinctions. Mitt did not say that a family of 4 earning under $30K would be eligible for Medicare. He said anyone with a salary of $25K, $30K, or $35K would get health care free forever.

A single person earning $20K would not be eligible.

And half the people on Medicare are children. If that continues, then that, too, is another factor with which to judge the accuracy, or the high-mindedness of Romney's remark.
