Re: Ezramesh Strikes Back! (Ezra Klein & Ramesh Ponnuru)
It confuses me that subsidies to health care are such an important element of the debate. It seems like you start at a point that health care is incredibly important an therefore insurance coverage must be mandated and end up implying that, without subsidies that move pretty far up the income ladder, people will either evade the mandate or bitterly resent paying for it. It is critically important so long as it doesn't interfer with next month's cable TV service, but if an individual or family is forced to choose between them, then the (political) sky is going to fall down.
