At $4 Trillion dollars per year, health care spending represented 17% of the US economy in 2020 and is expected to keep growing at approximately 5-6% per year. Those are big numbers and controlling the cost of healthcare is one of the few things with bipartisan support in congress. Any new administration, however, will bring in new priorities, often ones that were foreshadowed in the campaign.
