Why is media not reporting on property lean aspect of Obamacare?

To The Daily Sun,

Does N.H. really want Medicaid expansion?

As with most of Obamacare, not all parts of the bill have been made public before the passing of the bill.

Under Medicaid expansion those who own property (home, car, etc.), the federal government can put a lean on property after the person dies to pay back the federal (not state) government what it paid out under the Medicaid expansion.

Why is this not in the media? Is this something we want? What happens if one spouse dies? Can the other be kicked out of the home to sell it to pay for the benefit?

Why do we not know the ramifications before a bill passes.... Especially when part of Obamacare?
