In many counties, the only choice is Kaiser Permanente, a crummy HMO.
That's the reason why the health insurance exchanges were to be set up so counties with too few insurance options had more choices . And, with Covered California it worked like a dream!Now; insurance purchasers have a list of different policies that can be tailored to their own needs. What a consumerist Insurance Disneyland!

None of those companies are big in California. Kaiser Permanente, Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield of California are our major players and all are expected to participate. I could be wrong but as far as I know, none of those others contract with government agencies here in California.
The other insurers are dominant in the group market.

Kaiser Permanente is an HMO, by definition crummy medical care.

Personally, I think the cancellation of the events is a good thing. Taxpayers should not be footing the bill. Guess we can chalk it up as a Republican success.
Private contributions means taxpayers don't pay, you dummy.

Right-wing media can never get anything right. Obama didn't cancel anything. The GOP did.
Military officials were forced to take it upon themselves to decide what they could and could not afford due to the cuts forced upon them by the Republican's sequester (referred to by the GOP as holding the "high ground"). Several military institutions specifically credited sequestration as the reason they had to cancel 4th of July festivities:
March 15: Ongoing federal budget cuts prompted Naval Station Great Lakes in Chicago’s suburban Lake County to cancel this year’s Independence Day celebration.
March 21: The Air Force Academy's annual Independence Day celebration in Colorado Springs has been canceled due to budgetary concerns from SEQUESTRATION, Academy officials announced. SEQUESTRATION has forced the Academy to cut back on many activities it would normally support.
April 11: Fort Bragg announced that its Fourth of July celebration will be canceled because of budget cuts. Post officials said they cannot afford the $120,000 in overtime pay associated with the event, which has regularly drawn more than 50,000 people since it started more than 30 years ago.
April 16: Naval Station Everett (in Washington state) has canceled Independence Day celebrations at the base. Over the years, the Navy has offered the public a chance to visit the base and tour a ship as a part of July 4th festivities. The decision is separate from the Navy's announcement that it will cancel Fleet Week ship visits and Seafair performances by the Blue Angels.
May 6: Federal budget cuts are forcing Pearl Harbor to cancel its July 4 fireworks and the Marine Corps to cancel its annual Bayfest event at Kaneohe Bay.
May 7: Camp Lejeune will not be having its July 4th fireworks display because of SEQUESTRATION, base officials announced.
May 14: Shaw Air Force Base in Sumter, South Carolina is canceling its annual Independence Day celebration because of automatic federal budget cuts. Base officials say the cuts won't leave officials with enough money to put on the “Jammin' July Fourth” event at a Sumter park.
May 21: New Jersey's Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst has canceled its annual July Fourth celebration due to furloughs caused by congressionally mandated automatic budget cuts.
May 31: Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island has canceled its annual 4th of July celebration, citing the across-the-board budget cuts known as SEQUESTRATION.
June 6: Fort Hood officials confirmed this year’s on-post Fourth of July celebration will be significantly smaller, because of budget cuts to the military.
June 13: The annual Fourth of July celebration and fireworks show at Fort Jackson will go on this year despite federal budget cuts -- just with a little less sizzle. Missing from this year's festivities will be the popular "Torchlight Tattoo" -- a cannon salute to the U.S. states and territories.
June 18: A U.S. Navy band has been forced to pull out of the "Red, White & Boom" celebrations in Rock Island, Illinois because of government spending cutbacks known as SEQUESTRATION.

Hope you're not a young healthy male. Your costs could increase by as much as 50%. Even in your 30s, by as much as 49%.
It's already a big mess and hasn't even gotten off the ground yet.
No one knows what the heck is going on or how to get this Spruce Goose at 35,000 feet to fly at cruising speed.
Premium increases for healthy young males with individual policies will be well in excess of 100%.

Ah, demonstrating ignorance on yet another subject you know nothing about.
The Bronco was broken into while in police custody.
The LA County District Attorney's Office and the Medical Examiner's Office could not explain why 1.5 cm³ of blood were missing from the original 8 cm³ taken from Simpson and placed into evidence.
Defense medical expert Dr. Henry Lee of the Connecticut State Police Forensic Science Laboratory testified that the only way such a pattern of blood stain could appear on the sock was if Simpson had a "hole" in his ankle, or a drop of blood was placed on the sock while it was not being worn.
The gloves didn't fit.
Prosecutors claimed that the presence of O.J. Simpson's blood at the crime scene was the result of blood dripping from cuts on the middle finger of his left hand. Police noted his wounds on June 13, 1994, and asserted that these were suffered during the fatal attack on Ronald Goldman. However, the defense noted that none of the gloves found had any cuts.
The policeman who found the gloves turned out to be a virulent racist and perjured himself on the witness stand.
Fuhrman was called back to the witness stand by the defense to answer more questions about the discovery of the blood marks and leather glove that he supposedly found on Simpson's property hours after the murders took place. When questioned by attorney Gerald Uelmen, Fuhrman, with his lawyer standing by his side, pleaded the Fifth Amendment against self-incrimination to avoid further questioning.
Bottom line, the jury was not about to convict Simpson on the basis of testimony from a racist cop and mountains of tainted evidence.
This is laughable. It has been poured over countless times by everyone and their uncle and most conclusions were negative regarding the judge and the piss-poor prosecution team, so bad that it doesn't matter how good or bad the defense was.

"The jury spent only three hours deliberating the case that had produced 150 witnesses over 133 days and had cost $15 million to try."

3 hours. Count 'em. Just 3 f*cking hours.

They were in a hurry to get down to Chicken Schack for chitlins...

Mostly black jury from low class ghetto L.A.

Go figure. We all know the verdict on THAT jury. The Goldman family understood the purely racist call from that jury and then proceeded to get another trial and verdict against him with a normal white jury for monetary damages. They won but O.J.'s lawyers told him to move to Florida where crime figures have long hid because the State's law are configured to protect criminal assets.

The Goldman family got little to nothing.

And then the Jerk robbed a guy at gunpoint in Vegas.

A turd like O.J. or Trayvon can try to hide but their smell always gives them away eventually.

Zimmerman might get the same but I don't think the jury is all black.
