Not often discussed is the fact that unless you qualify for the “tax credit” subsidies you do NOT need the website.

On a related note, more & more small business plans are being dropped by insurance companies.

If any state can screw something up royally, it is Maryland, right up there with Californication and NewYuck.

I left it before it imploded. Got out with my sanity and wallet intact. Check out their “death taxes” if you want to croak.

Time for an audit of MD expenditures to implement. If Gansler, Attorney General of Maryland had any sense he'd be screaming for this now. It might rescue his bid for the governorship.
