    The Providence Journal had an article several weeks ago that included a link to the price chart. And both print and online media seem to be seeing this as big news, and have all sorts of helpful information.

    Any roll-out is likely to be rough. (As some media stories have reminded us, the Bush roll-out of Medicare Part D was so badly done that some people couldn't get their medications for several weeks.) This one is especially complicated, because the Administration insisted on one-stop shopping -- the ACA computer system is interlinked with IRS, Social Security, etc. etc. (with appropriate privacy roadblocks, of course), so it can automatically check your income before approving subsidies.
