    is likely a large share of the cost savings from the report referenced in the Diary.  The ability of states to opt out was part of the SCOTUS ACA decision, so the 2010 and 2012 estimates would not have included states opting out expanded Medicaid in their forecasts.

    As this CBO report pre-dates the White House decision for additional delay and reduced penalties for the Employer mandate, the latest projection would not include the lost revenue from the Employer mandate.

    The most important way to protect the environment is not to have more than one child.
