The Affordable Care Act Didn’t Bend the Cost Curve | Policy Dose | US News

These recent statistics are highly damaging to the original and reasonable motivation for the Affordable Care Act – to bend the health care spending and cost curve downwards. In fact, we now seem to be going in the opposite direction, perhaps because the extra tens of billions of dollars being expended by the federal government on health care are adding fuel to the fire. The incoming Trump administration, in addition to repealing the health care law, would be wise to design health policies that will slow the growth in health insurance premiums and health care costs, thereby increasing worker take-home pay and spendable resources for all Americans and reducing government spending and deficits.
