    They played for keeps. It's about damn time we quit conflating those ideas.

    •  BIG similarity- Only 30% of those who need COBRA (0+ / 0-)
      can afford it at the 65% subsidy level, only 17% can afford it unsubsidized.

      For SCHIP its far worse, SCHIP has discovered that people cannot afford SCHIP unless its subsidized at 95% - They are really strapped for cash. That shows clearly that the crapsurance bill will save a lot of money by being too expensive for most working people.

      Then they will have to pay fines. Free money!

      Single Payer is SO much of a 'no brainer' that it reveals our CURRENT politicians as having no brains!
