    won't Trustmark (and other companies that refuse to abide by new rules) be kept out of the exchange? Or is that exclusion up to state rules, as are rules on excessive increase to premiums?

    Trustmark raised rates in Pennsylvania, Arizona, Alabama, Virginia and Wyoming. It's a safe bet that none of those states have enacted laws to empower insurance commissioners to deny excessive insurance rate increases.

    The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little. -FDR
