  •  It would be symbolic (5+ / 0-)

    Symbolic of the destruction of New Deal type social programs and symbolic of the utter decreptitude of the democratic party.

    Horrible if this happens, but if it does, the democrats deserve to be absolutely routed in 2014.

    And in the exchanges, you can--and will--be age rated up to 3X the rate for the youngest and most healthy.

    I've figured something like this has been in Obama's tool kit for a few years now.

    •  3X wasn't meant for 65-66 (1+ / 0-)

      The insurance industry will lobby to make it 4X or 5X or whatever.  And we must do what the insurance industry wants not what 70% of the American people want.
