    So, actually, FreedomWorks might be doing Obamacare a big favor by reaching out to this cohort and letting them know that they're being offered health insurance. Otherwise, they might not have heard about it.
    although no incontestable logical deduction may be possible of specific price magnitudes from specific value magnitudes, even within a complex model (in contrast to a probabilistic prediction), even a "93% Ricardian theory" of labour-value appears to be a better empirical predictor of price than its rivals.

      •  price is not necessarily the prime element since (0+ / 0-)

        coverage by parents for some has been extended to the age of 26 for example

        •  See my answer to your comment above. (0+ / 0-)

          Are you commenting in support of ACA or agin it?  I can't tell because what you are saying isn't logical.  Of course price is not  the prime element for a 24 year old who is on his parents policy and they foot the bill.  It might concern his parents though if they found out the young adult could get covered for less premium outlay on the exchanges.  

          Regardless, the young person who gets to extend coverage to 26 is one more young person who helps spread the risk and is therefore beneficial to making the ACA work.
