The fact that people, well into the middle class, are going to get subsidies, is going to cause them to look at health care differently. Health care sort of in a third world way of "do we get subsidies from the government for our milk for our gasoline and oh by the way, for our health care?"

 Excuse me? Since when has the idea of providing subsidies for the populace to buy food and such something that's emblematic of third world countries? I could be wrong, but I don't think third world countries are characterized by benevolent governments looking out for the well being of their people. Last I checked, Somalia's not really known for its generous social safety nets.
