Levy and Buchmueller say ACA subsidies will make health care system more fair and efficient

a PSC In The News reference

"Buchmueller & Levy: Affordable Care Act to feed Americans' addiction to subsidies" - Detroit Free Press. 10/26/2013.

They conclude that "new subsidies introduced by the Affordable Care Act will substantially increase private insurance enrollment among working poor and middle-class families, who for too long have not been able to afford it.
