I know some people on here would not be happy about that but I think it would be a fair way to cut costs if needed.
I believe that those numbers are produced by residents of D.C. Have you been there lately? Average nice home in the suburbs is at least twice the price of Midwest homes.

Obviously, DC'ers think anyone below 400% actually live in poverty. Of course, if you don't have a mortgage, or car payments, a couple can actually live on $62k a year.

If someone really wants the ACA "death spiral" to occur try this....Give something free or greatly subsidized to people then turn around and yank it away from them. I am sure they will be just running to find the checkbook after seeing the unsubsidized costs.
But, Im in the do nothing camp. My land they cant even agree on properly funding the mosquito virus issue...What are the odds of anything in ACA being agreed to?
