    That will be the hard part without any added statutory support. The feds could just merge Medicare and medicaid, but that would require a new law.

    The GOP is the party of mammon. They mock what Jesus taught.

      in establishing exchanges as the best possible solution.

      Still studying the subject frankly.

        To pay for the exchanges!  Guess that got left out...

          David Dayen:

          Robert Pear today writes about an emerging lawsuit over the health care law that I touched on Thursday. The language around the insurance exchanges and whether the state or federal government runs them is sufficiently vague that conservative legal functionaries think they can exploit it:

              Starting in 2014, the law requires most Americans to have health insurance. It also offers subsidies to help people pay for insurance bought through markets known as insurance exchanges.

              At issue is whether the subsidies will be available in exchanges set up and run by the federal government in states that fail or refuse to establish their own exchanges.

              Critics say the law allows subsidies only for people who obtain coverage through state-run exchanges. The White House says the law can be read to allow subsidies for people who get coverage in federal exchanges as well.

          No doubt Roberts will be there to help out with this too.
