      Important information folks.  This provision I feel is for our highest 
good.  Budgets may be in scarcity, but mercy is abundance. Consider mercy in 
our health policy, "don't drink the tea", and move all things good, from 
scarcity to abundance. Healing the sick is mercy and life more abundant.  
Support President Obama and Health Care for All Americans.

                    Good afternoon,
                    Over the past few years, many Americans have seen their 
health insurance premiums skyrocket, while the quality of their health care 
declined. One of the reasons I pushed so hard to pass health care reform this 
year was to make sure that American consumers get what they pay for when it 
comes to their health care. 
                    Today, we're launching a new provision of the Affordable 
Care Act that does exactly that. Next year, insurance companies will be 
required to spend at least 80 percent of the health insurance premiums you pay 
on your health care, instead of overhead costs like advertising and executive 
compensation.  If they don't, they will be required to give you a rebate or cut 
your premiums starting in 2012. 
                    I asked Nancy-Ann DeParle, the Director of the Office of 
Health Reform here at the White House, to break down what this means for you 
and why it's so important:
                    This new rules will make our health care marketplace more 
transparent and ensure you get the best value for your premium dollars. And it 
is just one of the many parts of the Affordable Care Act that are already 
making our health care system stronger. Here are just a few ways the Affordable 
Care Act is helping you and your family:
                      a.. HealthCare.gov. This new website helps you find 
private health insurance coverage that's right for you and your family and now 
allows you to compare pricing for the options available to you.  In 2014, there 
will be many more affordable private plan choices. 
                      b.. Patient's Bill of Rights. Insurance companies can no 
longer place lifetime limits on your care.  If you're a young adult under the 
age of 26, you can stay on your parents' plan, and if your child has a 
pre-existing condition, insurance companies can't deny his or her coverage. 
                      c.. Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan. If you have a 
pre-existing condition and are having a problem finding coverage, the 
Affordable Care Act created a special insurance plan just for you.  
                      d.. Help for Small Businesses. If you're a small business 
owner, you may be eligible for tax credits to help provide insurance for your 
                      e.. Free Preventive Care. If you're purchasing a new 
plan, you’ll get preventive care like cancer screenings, well-baby and 
well-child check-ups, and blood pressure or diabetes tests for free.
                    These aren't just talking points. These changes are saving 
people’s lives and saving you money, and we will continue our work to implement 
this landmark law and make our health care system better for all of us.
                    President Barack Obama

Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers, Austan Goolsbee, who explains 
some important economic policies.  You can see them all here:
