Unscramble the Blue Letters

The thing that I've been struggling with is why. Why do we agree on health? We aerge on health because it is common sense. We all know that the things we need to get haehlty — medicine and medical care — are not the things we need to be healthy, to not get sick in the first place. But we also agree because of common experience. In a sduty of 5,000 patients, 24 pcenert of the patients with commercial health insurance — meaning, they had a job — still ran out of food or struggled to find housing or transportation or other essential rercseuos. Twenty-four percent. And we saw the same thing in our focus groups. Nearly every voter knew what it maent to struggle, either themselves or their families or their neighbors.
