Blue House, Red Senate: What Now For American Healthcare?

Unlike the 2016 presidential election, which surprised pollsters, the 2018 midterms panned out as predicted: Republicans kept the Senate majority and Democrats wrested control of the House.

After enduring months of healthcare policy ads, patients are eager to know which (if any) promises the 116th Congress will keep. And because many promises were made, I asked would-be voters to get specific about which healthcare issues matter most to them.
