Healthcare And Tax Reform

From 1998 through 2011, the U.S. Census Bureau reports that the population grew by 32 million. However, the private insurance market failed to meet the needs of this increased population. In 2011, nearly 1 out of every 6 Americans lacked healthcare coverage. The number of individuals covered by government programs for the military, the poor, and those over 65 grew by 32.4 million, while 10.9 million were added to the ranks of the uninsured.
