FROM THIS EPISODE

Under Obamacare, almost everybody has to have health insurance by next Monday or pay a penalty. For those who aren't covered by their employers or aren't poor enough to qualify for a federal subsidy, rates are 53% higher than they were last year. People who kept their old policies say they’re not getting what they’re paying for. We hear about a squeeze on the self-employed and the upper middle class, and a proposed ballot measure to regulate what insurance companies can charge.

We hear what that means for the economy — and what it takes for an individual American to put blinders on government, private companies and potential criminals.
