Re: Huh! @Mystic Megabyte

Yup. And under Bush, pre-ACA, premiums... also rose. 58% in his last 6 years in office, 2002 - 2008.
2009 to 2016, according to Kaiser/HRET, premiums rose 34%.
This is an example of a misleading argument using partial information.
What else is wrong in the list you quoted? How about, "Americans aren’t getting healthier."
For an opposing, research-based viewpoint, see the NY Times, August, 2016:
"A few recent studies suggest that people have become less likely to have medical debt or to postpone care because of cost. They are also more likely to have a regular doctor and to be getting preventive health services like vaccines and cancer screenings. A new study, published Monday in JAMA Internal Medicine, offers another way of looking at the issue. Low-income people in Arkansas and Kentucky, which expanded Medicaid insurance to everyone below a certain income threshold, appear to be healthier than their peers in Texas, which did not expand."
Finally, a bit of meta: here's what a media bias / factcheck website wrote about your source:
"Notes: Zero Hedge is a financial blog that aggregates news and presents editorial opinions from original and outside sources. In between the aggregated news there are crazy economic conspiracies and general right wing biases."
