    ...I expect to see a push by Republicans in the coming year to drop the level where people are eligible for subsidies from 400% of poverty to 250% or 300%.  All in the name of austerity and deficit reduction, of course -- because while we can afford to eliminate estate taxes and offer extra low tax rates on unearned income, somehow it seems that helping working people afford health insurance is just going too far...

    So be prepared for the need to push back to keep what we're currently supposed to be getting.
