    Sec. 1001. Affordability. Improves the financing for premiums and cost sharing for individuals with incomes up to 400% of the federal poverty level. Subsection (a) improves tax credits to make premiums more affordable as a percent of income; and subsection (b) improves support for cost sharing, focusing on those with incomes below 250% of the federal poverty level. Starting in 2019, constrains the growth in tax credits if premiums are growing faster than the consumer price index, unless spending is more than 10% below current CBO projections.

    Good Grief!!

    It needs a late term fifth trimester abortion!

    The 'Cadillac Plan' 2018? LOL! They will never shive the unions like that. Only one of the points that make it impossible for the CBO to actually count costs.

    But it's really not "Obama's bill", it's the democraps bill. And nothing works better than pandering to minorities when you're a filthy democrat.

    The bill also puts a 3.9% medicare tax on all investment income - squashing job creation even further.
