hcan occasionally [very occasionally] does something useful.

they've posted some detailed tables comparing the house and senate bills on affordability of both premiums and out of pocket expenses. they've listed every income level from 100% of fpl to 400% of fpl, going by 5% increments, for one-person and three-person families, listing by both dollar amount and percent of income what people would have to pay under each of the bills.

some of the tables even include the original senate help bill and the original house bill hr3200 for comparison.

wonk out!
