Open enrollment started today for Obamacare and many employer-provided health care plans. About half of Americans get their insurance through work — with Obamacare premiums spiking, how are they doing? Plus, with Hillary Clinton's emails in the news again (and again, and again), we gotta ask: do you know how secure your work emails are?
