What to watch for in conference

Paul Waldman ticks off 10 policies to watch as the House and Senate meet to merge their bills. At this point, I'd say the likeliest, and biggest, possible victories would be a move toward a national exchange and an increase in subsidy levels.

You reallly think those are likely? From reading the MSM I get such a different picture--they mostly make it sound as if we will get nothing at all from this bill.

What about moving up the start date? If you had to choose (and the conferees might have to), would you rather have the House's subsidy levels or the House's start date (2013 vs. 2014)?

Sick! I'd still love a full post about what you think would be the most likely progressive provisions to come out of conference -- but this is a good start.

Is a national exchange at all likely? Doesn't that blow up the Nelson abortion compromise?
