Health care and social security are in the ballot this year

Not all elections are the same. In 2018, voters were motivated by Brett Kavanaugh’s appointment to the Supreme Court, reactions to Donald Trump, the tax cut that went mainly to the rich, and the effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act. 2020 dominated by pandemic and high unemployment, the main themes this year are inflation, abortion and threats to democracy.

But even if they have received less attention, health care and social security are also on a run-off in 2022. Both are economic issues that matter a lot to living well and with dignity.

Polls show that some voters worry about some health problems more than others.
