Earlier this year, my monthly insurance premium went up to $466.35 (that was for me and my dependent son). My plan did not pay for preventative screenings — colonoscopies and the like — or for annual checkups. All those costs went toward the [more]

Re: Obamacare Costs Continue to Plummet

Re: PayScale study: poor returns college degree

Who did that study talk to, anyway? They certainly didn't interview me.
