Quote 
  "The president and his administration launched HealthCare.gov knowing that the personal information of Americans who bought insurance through the website was not safe. Their personal information was not safe then, and it is not safe now. Someone should be held accountable for this kind of gross mismanagement, and security must be fixed immediately before a major hacking attack does massive damage." Lamar Alexander, United States Senator, Tennessee
 

Factoid
  $295 million in Affordable Care Act FY14 funding will go to 1,195 health centers in every U.S. State, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and the Pacific Basin to expand primary care services. This will enable health centers to hire an estimated 4,750 new staff that will help health centers reach a possible 1.5 million new patients nationwide, including over 137,000 oral health patients and more than 38,000 mental and substance abuse patients.
