The House has voted to make it harder for hundreds of thousands of people to qualify for Medicaid under the president's health care overhaul.
Lawmakers voted 262-157 to include Social Security and railroad retirement benefits in the formula that determines whether people qualify for the aid.
The Congressional Budget Office says that would knock 500,000 to 1 million people off coverage by the federal insurance program for the poor -- though some would qualify to buy coverage under new insurance exchanges.
The budget office has estimated the change would save about $13 billion over the next decade.
The House wants to use those savings to pay for the repeal of a law that pressures government contactors to fully pay their taxes.
The Senate hasn't voted yet on the health measure.
