Why the next health care fight will be over the high price of care


With the president’s big health care speech this week, I’ve been reflecting on what health care looked like before the 2016 election.

We were only a few years into ObamaCare’s disastrous rollout. Premiums were rising, insurance providers on the exchange were dropping like flies, and health care was more complicated and expensive than ever for millions of people.

To add insult to injury, Americans everywhere were forced to choose between paying for expensive government-mandated insurance or paying a fine and going without insurance at all.
