When health insurers filed their rates for 2017, not a single state commissioner contemplated that the incoming presidential administration might cancel federal cost-sharing subsidies.
Poorer people don’t just get subsidies to help buy insurance on the Obamacare exchanges. They actually get better insurance.
If the health-care market were actually a market, there wouldn’t be any need for the GOP candidates’ complicated tax plans to replace Obamacare.
Obamacare creates another, more powerful incentive for avoiding a higher income: you might not end up losing your subsidies, but paying them back, too.
The question in today’s Supreme Court case, King v. Burwell, is whether laws mean whatever the president wants them to mean.
Conservatives won’t know Obamacare is working if they only read right-leaning sites, says Ezra Klein. Au contraire.
