    Then you're just under the wire, and you'll still get free Medicaid (the cutoff is around $30,700 for a family of four). And if something pushes your income above that threshold, you'll get nearly all of it subsidized on the individual health exchange market.

    And yeah...thats still assuming that my state participates. Will it? I have no friggen clue and sure as hell won't count on it.
    Depends where you live. If you live in a blue state, a swing state, or even a moderately red state, it almost certainly will. A 100% matching grant from the federal government is simply too good a deal for any intelligent governor/legislature to pass up. And even if you live in a bright red state that hates Obama to the point it's willing to turn down free money, it might take a bit longer but eventually they'll probably quietly get on board too, after the furor has died down.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    its not really a tax, as taxes are not supposed to be punitive. SCOTUS has quite an imagination.
    Before the Supreme Court the Solicitor General alternatively argued that the Mandate was a tax. He devoted 21 lines in the Reply Brief arguing that the Mandate should survive judicial scrutiny under the taxing power.

    You mean, telling you that this will cause you to be forced to be on Medicaid doesn't make you feel better? What kind of ungrateful claud are you?

    And it may not be "great" to you...but to someone like me? An extra 7k per year means alot.

    That makes no logica sense that I can follow. Nothing's changed in that regard.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
