If you read the article carefully, they are actually wanting to lower the threshold from 10 to 5, which increases the number eligible for services. The author of the article misspoke himself.

Yet another poorly written article. Who's writing this crap, Psycho Rex?
So just as they are trying to find ways to make necessary cuts, Obama is finding ways to raise standards and in turn raise the burden on the taxpayer. Go figure. Yeah, lead poisoning is right up there in importance with those Cowboy Poetry festivals ol' cool hand Harry is so worried about.
