Understanding the Health Care Fight

From Axios: This is what Washington has been fighting about

An excerpt:

Every time you hear the Trump administration or Congress fight about rising Affordable Care Act premiums, or what will happen to people with pre-existing conditions, just remember — we’re talking about issues that affect 7 percent of the population. That’s how many people are in the individual health insurance market, or the “non-group” market…

But when you hear about those sky-high rate hikes because of “Obamacare,” chances are, they’re not your sky-high rate hikes — unless you happen to be in that market…

The spending limits that have been proposed for Medicaid really do matter, and they affect a larger group — 20 percent of the population.
