A great one, from Kevin Drum. It seems that conservatives have found their smoking gun against the Affordable Care Act: coverage under the ACA will be really expensive!
Which, as Drum points out, seems to overlook the point that coverage before the ACA was really expensive.
And that subsidies, which phase out as income rises, mean that for a whole lot of people coverage will cost less. Also, that plans through the exchanges will have regulated benefits, so that generally people are getting more for their money. And that there's a pretty large group of people who want but can't get any coverage on the individual market now, but will be guaranteed the ability to buy insurance under the ACA.
But mainly just that coverage without reform was already very expensive, and it's not clear at all that it will be worse with reform.
Now, I haven't read through all of the conservative follow-ups to the original story Drum cites, but yeah: it's as if conservative critics have no sense of the substance of public policy at all. Which, you know, probably makes it difficult to formulate, enact, and implement viable policy when they get a chance.
None of which proves anything one way or another about whether the ACA will work as advertised, or will be good policy even if it does. But, yes, the hallmark of much of the opposition to health care reform has been a lot of people who don't appear to have any idea what they're talking about.
So: nice catch!
