You likely heard about the double-digit hikes in health care costs for people with Obamacare?
There are some things to know about it all.
First, the costs won't be passed on to the patient. They will be paid by the subsidies in and from Obamacare. So the person getting the care won't be gouged. Their health care won't get any more expensive. Sure, this is still not good because that money has to come from somewhere but at least the person on the street, that patient won't have it any worse.
Second, this---

The truth about healthcare premiums: 

They'd be a lot higher without Obamacare

The fact is, the health care corporations in this country are still just gouging the hell out of all of us here in this country. They still just keep relentlessly, year after year, jacking up the prices of their drugs and treatments, etc. And what's great, at least for them, is that now they get to blame the Black guy, they get to blame Obama and his Obamacare.  Worst of all, too many people will believe all that nonsense, that the price rises are the fault of Obamacare.
No one should be fooled. The fact is, the ugly fact remains, we are the only nation in the world that ties health care to profit. It is, single-handedly, clearly, the only reason our health care is, far and away, the most expensive health care and health care system in the world, on the planet. And for all that money, let me remind you, it's also the least effective for us. Check this out.

Once again, U.S. has most expensive, 

least effective health care

Yes, this is from 2014 but keep in mind, since this survey, our health care costs, as we know, have risen even higher, and not by just a little bit. And the higher the price goes, the less can afford it, the less get that health care.
We must untie health care in this nation from profit and profits.
That's all there is to it.
What we're doing now, what we've done up to now has gotten us this outrageously high, not just expensive but super expensive, deeply immoral system.
And it's killing us.
