Health­Care.gov is set to be Obama’s leg­acy— and Steph­en Col­bert couldn’t be hap­pi­er about the enorm­ous “techno-turd-taco” it’s be­come. 

Plus, fake Twit­ter ac­counts abound at the White House, and they’re re­spons­ible for leak­ing clas­si­fied in­form­a­tion. The gov­ern­ment is about to get a taste of its own pri­vacy medi­cine. 

And after years of risky, con­sequence-free busi­ness prac­tices, the folks at JP­Mor­gan Chase are fi­nally agree­ing to pay up. They’re fork­ing over $13 bil­lion for mis­lead­ing in­vestors about subprime se­cur­it­ies. It’s the largest cor­por­ate set­tle­ment in his­tory— and the fin­an­cial news me­dia is up in arms.
