Meantime, Donald Trump tried to sieze on news that Affordable Care Act premiums are going up next year, by saying the program has caused problems for his employees.  But it turns out that more than 95-percent of his employees are covered by his company.

Breaking over stats down nationally,  49% of Americans get health care through their employer; and 34% are on Medicare or Medicaid.  Another 7% of the U.S. population has insurance through the Healthcare Marketplace.  Of that number, 85% recieve tax credits to help pay for subsidies; and, subsidies increase as premiums increase.
