What is the Tunnel Wall?

.........................A timely collection of conservative articles about corrosive liberal influences on politics and culture in America. Once a no-Trumper, the Tunnel Dweller is keenly aware that this most effective President is all that stands between us and our being ruled by those who have contempt for our nation and her history. This is NOT my father's Democrat Party and we must fear it as we once feared the Soviet Union. ......................

A Chicago Tribune analysis showed that 21 of the 22 lowest-priced plans offered for Cook County residents on the Illinois exchange have annual deductibles of more than $4,000 for an individual and $8,000 for family coverage. (Deductibles are the money consumers must spend on health care before most insurance benefits kick in.)
Here are the other points with a more detailed discussion of each at the link:
2. Will people pay?...
3. Attracting the sickest...
4. Less expensive plans vanish...
5. Families lose out...
6. Repaying subsidies...
7. Public health-care costs are going to explode...
8. More jobs lost...
9. Identity theft and fraud will explode...
10. Federal-exchange subsidies eliminated?...
