The private healthcare system of the United States represents nearly one-fifth of the largest economy in history. From a factual perspective, it is twice as costly as its nearest peer (Switzerland) and achieves the same health outcomes as former Soviet nations.
One of its major problems is the sheer number of people left uninsured because their work (or lack thereof) does not provide insurance coverage.
This trend shows that in just one year of the Affordable Care Act, these numbers changed materially.
There are a host of implications from this trend: politics, labor, entrepreneurialism, and insurance shall all be affected.
