Yes, this is exactly what we want to encourage Americans to do.

People whose 2014 income will be a little too high to get subsidized health insurance from Covered California next year should start thinking now about ways to lower it to increase their odds of getting the valuable tax subsidy.
I don’t know, (sadly shaking head), maybe this is what we need. Maybe we need this to demonstrate the stupidity of such laws. They are designed to encourage less productivity, less upward mobility, and more poverty. Why does America continue to punish people who are trying?
