Matt and Dara are joined by Vox's Dylan Scott to examine the $400 billion
portion of Biden's $2 trillion infrastructure plan that is designated for the
"caretaking economy." Is this merely an expansion of Medicaid? Does it
actually address fundamental structural issues in the economics of long-term
care? Plus, some research is examined that helps illustrate the power of
"defaults" in ACA-type health insurance marketplaces. Resources: "White House
unveils $2 trillion infrastructure and climate plan, setting up giant battle
