While politicians in Washington are hailing California's exchange as proof of the law's success, voters in California don't seem to agree—and it's not hard to understand why. Policies for about 900,000 Californians are being cancelled because they don't meet the law's benefit mandates. And about two-thirds of these individuals won't be eligible for subsidies on the exchange and will likely see their premiums rise. And while the California exchange may be less glitch-prone than the one set up by the feds, it's been nothing short of an embarrassment for a state that considers itself the tech capital of the world.

Nelson Mandela was lauded as “one of the greatest leaders of our time” as tens of thousands of cheering South Africans and almost 100 world leaders paid tribute to the anti-apartheid icon at a memorial service Tuesday. “South Africa has lost a hero, we have lost a father, the world has lost a beloved friend and mentor,” U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said during the service for the freedom fighter, prisoner, president and Nobel laureate who led his nation out of apartheid.
Along a street lined with walled mansions shaded by graceful jacaranda trees, mourners, black and white, by the thousands rubbed shouldersoutside the villa where Nelson Mandela died, placing flower bouquets and condolence notes on top of piles already knee-high. Others danced while singing praise for the anti-apartheid leader — a vivid example of the "Rainbow Nation" unity of race-blind multiculturalism championed by Mandela for South Africa.
