From the CDC, here are the latest estimates about the accessibility of healthcare in America.  The share of the population that was forced to go without needed medical care during the past year because of cost has gone up from 4.5% in 1997 to 7.3% so far this year.  USA! USA!

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
