A great number of paradoxes, starting with Scroedinger's cat

In just one week the main part of Obamacare will begin to kick in. This is the state level exchanges that will allow the uninsured to be covered. Beginning on October 1, people will be able to sign up to get insurance in their state regardless of their health.

Most people signing up on the exchanges will qualify for subsidies based on their income and family size. This means that the cost of insurance will be less than the advertised price.

Hi, just wanted to say I've been one of those people who have been "lurking" in the background for the last couple of months. Your comments and those of the other prominent posters make me feel like I have found a place for clear thinking. Thanks for your posts, even the snarky ones. Cheers!
