The Numbers Behind Fixing Health Care In America
On March 23, 2010 Democrats slammed a health care plan through Congress that helped many Americans, but it is far from perfect. Now Republicans are offering a plan that will leave millions of Americans without insurance.  It seems as if Congress is unable to fix health care, however the current system is unsustainable. According to the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare the U.S. spent $3.2 trillion on health care in 2015. That’s $10,035 per person. It’s an insane amount of money. Turns out it is possible to lower costs and improve care, but it’s not as easy as I thought when I started the research for...
