  •  b/c subsidies can be cut at will by Congress (1+ / 0-)

    This bill is smoke and mirrors. It's full of promises and costs and taxes in the out years. All of those issues will continue to be fought over and amended in the coming years.

    look for my DK Greenroots diary series Wednesday evening. "It's the planet, stupid."

    •  I think the assumption is that (0+ / 0-)

      Congress will look at the costs and say "Now we have to reform the private insurance industry".  It seems to me that it could just as easily cut the subsidies.  

      Subsidies without cost controls, regulatory reform means that citizens get a little more awful insurance at a huge cost to taxpayers. Like Part D but worse.
