    “Employer health insurance tends to be good and relatively cheap for workers…”

    A great incentive for people to get a solid job.

    This is reassuring.

    “As CBS News reported this month, personal information for many new customers will be routed from a federal datahub to the state-based exchanges, opening up the possibility of security breaches.”
