Looks like it's nuclear option day! Greg Dworkin also had some other stuff, too, about that whole health care thing. Some especially good stuff on cost-contol market forces, how they work, and how we sometimes maybe kind of wish they wouldn't. Or maybe just wish that we could have our cake and eat it, too. Building on that, we discussed "The huge health-care subsidy everyone is ignoring," and reminded ourselves that there actually are some Republicans looking to eliminate that subsidy... but only if you buy a plan that covers abortion. Which would only be about 87% of private plans on the market. And, "English Has a New Preposition, Because Internet." Lastly a wrap-up on the nuclear option outlook, and one last attempt to clarify just what'll likely happen, what it means, and what it doesn't.
