Anyone else planning on retiring early due to the availability of health insurance

at 133% of the poverty level? I am. I am 41 and wife 43. No kids, paid for house/farm, non-tax deferred investments will generate about 17K per year so just make the 133% of poverty line limit for medicaid insurance. Since we grow most of our own food , heat with wood, have solar panels/well, and no debt, our living expenses are less than 12k per year now. We have been thinking of retiring early but health care for the next 20+ years was the big stumbling block.
I think you will see LOTS of people like my wife and I leaving the ranks of the corporate world as there are many that are working now just for the health benefits.
Is anyone else planning to retire early in 2014? Do you think this will be a trend? Will it be a good thing or a bad thing? Should open some spots for the younger generation in the workplace but lose alot of tax revenue from older workers.
Jesus...are the DUmmies living in a dream world now? They are starting to think that this is going to mean that they all will get free care....
