Elections Have Consequences

Written by


Vox reported that the number of Americans without health insurance has increased by 7 million since President Donald Trump took office, new Gallup data released shows.  The country’s uninsured rate has steadily ticked upward since 2016, rising from a low of 10.9 percent in late 2016 to 13.7 percent — a four-year high.  This trend is especially surprising given that over the same time period, the unemployment rate has been declining. Usually, when more people have jobs, it means more people with access to employer-sponsored health insurance. But even during this period of job growth, America’s uninsured rate keeps climbing.
