[Best Syndication News] While teens already have high enough car insurance premiums, one thing they can do is to not get in an accident and see the rates increase after this occurs. One bad habit that many teens, and adults have acquired is the habit of texting while driving. This combination of activities has been involved in many dangerous and life-threatening accidents.

A new bill is being introduced that was prepared by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that will help make it easier to law enforcement officers to stop a vehicle and issue a citation for a driver that is caught texting while driving.

[Best Syndication News] With the threat of individual health insurance plans in California potentially being kicked out of the state for possible non-compliance with the state laws, some people with individual health insurance policies are probably holding their breath in hopes to have reasonably priced health insurance that will still cover them. The question looms in many people's minds how do you get health insurance if you can't afford it or if you have a pre-existing condition. Here are some different ideas to get health insurance or medical care when you have a pre-existing condition.

A divorced lady was sharing her plan to get health insurance coverage on the day-time syndicated television show 'The Doctors.' She has posted her plea for a man to marry that has a good health insurance plan. So far she has received 7,000 marriage proposals. The doctors asked her if she would seriously marry someone just for good health insurance. She said yeah, but at the same time she hasn't agreed to marry anyone yet. She pointed out on the show that if she went to prison she could get the necessary health care and medication. She spends 90 percent of her income paying for her medications and medical care. She is a working person that can't get health insurance, but if she marries she could get covered.

Anthem Blue Cross of California being sued by Consumer Watchdog Group

[Best Syndication News] Anthem Blue Cross recently raised health insurance policy premiums up to 39 percent on some individual health plans, which has caused government as well as others to take notice. The Consumer Watchdog organization has filed a lawsuit today against Anthem Blue Cross because of the rate hike and forcing policy holders into less coverage because of the excessive rate hike.

Anthem Blue Cross is a subsidiary of WellPoint Inc., which is the largest health insurance provider in the United States. The lawsuit filed today against the corporation is accusing them of increasing monthly rates, so much as to force consumers into lower-benefit coverage with higher-deductibles. The Consumer Watchdog group is saying that this is a violation of state law and the lawsuit is being filed by Blue Cross policyholders as well as consumer advocates.

(Best Syndication News) Q: Your new book, When Everything Changed (Little, Brown) covers the cascade of rights women won between 1964 and 1972 from equal pay and the right to their own credit rating to the right to wear pants and to be called by the honorific "MS." Why was this second women's rights movement necessary fifty years after women won the right to vote?

Gail Collins: While the suffragists succeeded in getting the Nineteenth Amendment ratified in 1920, they also believed that women's role should be at home as mothers and wives. Without the economic power of participating in the workplace and positions of influence in society, women's status after getting the vote could really not change much.
