Even before San Antonio City Council passed regulations governing Transportation Network Companies (TNCs) Uber and Lyft, supporters of the companies cried foul, claiming the rules were more burdensome than those for taxi cabs.

NOWCastSA journalist Clayton Price knew first-hand that at least some of the rules for TNCs were more lenient than for other vehicles for hire. That's because Price, the human equivalent of a Swiss Army knife, was once a pedicab driver ~ and he had to play by the rules in Chapter 33 of the San Antonio City Code.

Almost 970,000 Texans signed up for health plans through the Health Insurance Marketplace of the Affordable Care Act, and 86 percent of them received tax credits to reduce their monthly premiums, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services said on Feb. 5, 2015.

Insurance policies purchased by people with lower incomes also have lower deductibles and lower caps on out-of-pocket spending.

Without insurance, a serious illness or accident can leave a person with a very large debt to pay back over many years or, even worse, bankruptcy.
