The Corner

The one and only.

Hedging Away


I was right in my prediction that no one at the ABC health special would challenge the president on his recent changes of heart on two crucial issues, the mandate and this notion that no one would force you to change your current status. But they did raise the third issue that I think he will flip on, that of capping the deductibility of plans. The president said he “continues to think it’s not the best way,” but then added that there are going to have to be compromises to get this done. Keep watching for the change of heart on this one.
