    ... the cast of characters in the diary, may not today have health insurance. So the "savings" are not actually in the pocket, like getting a sale price on something you weren't going to buy. The GOP will exploit the high cost and the prices - calculated without the subsidy, you can be sure - of medical insurance plans for those who are not insured now.

    They're certainly not above that kind of false advertising.

    This is to take nothing away from the diary. It is right on, but we can know now that the Grand Old Party will exploit every kind of misgiving it can between now and the actual, eventual, ultimate, it's-finally-here! effective date of the next really key phase of The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

      They'll see how much money they're saving.

      •  True that, but paying now isn't a saving to them. (0+ / 0-)

        It's the way the extremist right is arguing the case that's dangerous.
