Regarding the article “Uninsured rate drops, but medical expenses still drag millions into poverty," this should not be about health insurance but healthcare coverage. So what if only 9.1% of the population isn't covered by health insurance? The reason the level is low is that the federal government put a gun to the heads of middle- and low-income people and threatened them with a tax if they didn't have insurance. So now they have “insurance” but the premiums are killing them and the deductibles are so high they can't use their coverage. This should be about bending the healthcare cost curve and providing affordable healthcare to people who truly need it. The current makeup of the ACA does not do this.
