    The right wing has nothing but repeal, not any better solutions at lower cost.

    How many more Persons will a tax cut, cover?

    You can't do it political, you just literally cannot do it. Transparent financing and also transparent spending. I mean, this bill was written in a tortured way to make sure CBO did not score the mandate as taxes. If CBO scored the mandate as taxes the bill dies. Okay? So it’s written to do that, In terms of risk rated subsidies, if you had a law which said that healthy people are going to pay in, you made explicit healthy people pay in and sick people get money, it would not have passed. Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter orwhatever, but basically that was really really critical to get for the thing to pass.Look, I wish Mark was right that we could make it all transparent, but I’d rather have this law than not."

    I surely hope no one actually thought t he op article was a news article..... :rolleyes:

    What was the percentage before Obama care...to compare to the +/-10% ocare brought it down to?

    What were the measures Trump took to sabotage Ocare in 2017 that made 3 million plus lose coverage?


    THE fake news OP article covered NONE of that'....:rolleyes:
