  • What about all the poor slobs who signed up for the "free lunch" and now might find they are on the hook for the entire insurance cost. I guess the IRS can deduct it from their tax refund, if any, but otherwise I guess they are home free.

  • This doesn‘t go to the gist of your article but the tax credits are designed for the middle class. Medicaid is for poor people. This is what the Kaiser Family Foundation states about the tax credits: "Beginning in October 2013, middle-income people who are not eligible for coverage through their employer, Medicaid, or Medicare, can apply for tax credit subsidies available through state-based exchanges." http://kff.org/interactive/subsidy-calculator/
