He's right--it's based on your 2014 income, and if you make too much, you have to pay the subsidy back.

I don't like it when I do it, either, but I can tell myself without posting it on the internet. In this case, if you must know, I reported my own post to the mods several hours ago.

The post asking the question struck me as asking it in a kind of accusatory fashion. "Which health plan?" would have gotten to the answer, in my opinion, without the underlying, "You don't know what...

It's not?

He said he was unemployed. Where would he have gotten an employer health plan? And what difference does it make, anyway, which plan it was?

Is that a genuine question? Clearly, Singing in the Drizzle signed up for a plan within the ACA's exchanges. With no employer, it would not be an employee plan. With all those charges, it would not...

Right. That's what "freeway" means to me, although, to be honest, it isn't in my personal vocabulary. (Highway, interstate, turnpike, etc. do the job for me.)

The major change, as I see it, is to how people with preexisting conditions might get insurance now, and thus, might get more/better care.

The rest is kind of status quo.

Who is "we"?
