Greg Dworkin rounds up the day's ACA implementation news, and today that centers on questions of whether premiums are headed up or down. And where you stand on the ACA at large has a lot to do with how you'll describe what's happening. Especially if you're Suzanne Somers. And a reminder of the state of the upcoming elections in Virginia. The hot ACA debate of the day is over the meaning of the President's promise that "if you like your insurance, you can keep it." What does it mean to say you "like your insurance?" Does anyone really like it? Or do they just dislike change even more? And if you do like it, it's probably just because the CEO of your carrier hasn't figured out a way to make you pay more for it without making you hate it enough to switch. Next, "Chris Christie: America's most overrated governor." And Think Progress says the House is prepared to pass a Citigroup-written law "gutting a Dodd-Frank financial reform provision that forced federally-insured banks to cease trading in derivatives."
