1. If this aspect is enacted, the fight moves to the states. GOPer led states will say premiums for

the 80% or so without significant pre-existing conditions will decline with risk pools. They probably will.

The question is, how many people in those states don't really care about people in the "risk pools" and whether there is adequate funding for them. Truthfully, if the final legislation were written that people in the "risk pool" will pay out of their pocket no more than others with similar financial resources, the government will subsidize the differences from taxes, and it's guaranteed to stay that way, it might not be such a bad idea if we aren't going to go to single payer. But that won't happen, and has not happened in the past when we tried risk pools.
