As in the song "Lawyers In Love" we have a land, a nation with too many in high places willing to do anything for money neglecting people, honor and principle but a change is coming. No more falling for the lie of living only individualistic and independent lives leaving us divided and conquerable by powerful special interests but a people, a nation collaborating for the greater common good in various groups all across the nation. A land of people working together to help one another with a vision moreover as Jesus would have us be. Love, Mercy, Forgiveness, Kindness....something about another Land. The change is coming

Health Insurance Rates Under Obamacare Will Be Lower In 36 States

WASHINGTON — Most Americans buying insurance from new state health exchanges will have at least two insurers to choose from, and six out of 10 people could pay less than $100 a month in premiums, a report to be released Wednesday by the Department of Health and Human Services shows.
The report analyzed insurance plans and premiums in 36 states where the federal government will either run or help run the exchanges, which are websites where state residents can shop for and buy health insurance starting Oct. 1.
In those 36 states, 95% of people will have two or more plans to choose from, while the average premium for all states and all ages will be $328, according to HHS. However, anyone who makes less than 400% of the federal poverty level, or about $94,000 for a family of four, will be eligible for a federal tax subsidy that will immediately be deducted from the cost of the insurance policy.

AFFORDABLE CARE ACT: Where do you fit in?

Wednesday's report is the latest review of exchanges' rates and policies from HHS and various states.
Most have shown lower rates than anticipated, as more insurers have entered the markets and pegged their prices to capture more customers.
The Obama administration estimates that 7 million uninsured Americans will use the exchanges to buy insurance in the six-month enrollment period that starts next week and ends March 1.
"Individual markets in way too many markets were dominated by one or two insurers," HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said, adding that they now have an average of 53 plans to choose from. "The bottom line is that January 1 will be a new day for millions of Americans."

As for Ted Cruz-

Senator Ted Cruz of Texas follows in the footsteps of Senator Joseph McCarthy, a politician who the nation would like to forget ever existed. But Cruz shares more than just the long pointed nose and the dark slicked back greasy hair of his predecessor.

Cruz spews the same grandstanding bloviating nonsense in the form of innuendo, lies, and demagoguery.

McCarthy’s shameful rhetoric eventually ended his political career and we can only hope that the bombastic Senator Cruz meets the same fate. - from the internet 

The calloused insanity from Cruz and some on his side of the aisle never take into account the inevitablility for those of the poor and it comes down to this:

You have health insurance, you catch the disease in time, you live
You don't have health insurance, you don't catch the disease in time, you die.

And if the GOP had it's way pre-existing conditions would remain as they blackheartedly pretend the above axiom is not in play and tell the poor if they weren't so lazy they would have gone to the doctor and caught the disease in time. And for what? To discover they now have a pre-existing condition that disqualifies them from any coverage should there have been the slightest chance of getting it at all. 

Not only does Ted Cruz's political career need to come to an end but his political party needs to come to an end and be replaced by one with both a brain and a heart. - from Doug
