HEALTH CARE REFORM … IT’S BACK

House Republicans passed a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare last week.

Not sure where things stand? Here’s a breakdown from CNN’s Tami Luhby of who could be hurt or helped by the proposed legislation.

But one component that isn’t going away are health savings accounts — more commonly known as HSAs.

THESE INTERNS ARE MAKING BANK

Here’s some news that might make you rethink your day job.

Some interns will take home paychecks this summer that are higher than what many Americans make.

The 25 highest-paying internships pay at least $4,500 a month, according to a report released last week from Glassdoor.

Facebook (FB, Tech30) interns earn the most with a median monthly pay of $8,000 (don’t forget about all the free food), which would translate into an annual salary of $96,000. The median annual household income in the U.S. was $56,516 in 2015.

Microsoft (MSFT, Tech30) came in second with a median pay of $7,100 a month, followed by ExxonMobil (XOM) at $6,507.

But it’s not like these interns will be fetching coffee or taking lunch orders. Many will be doing high-level engineering work and helping with marketing projects.
