MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- A nonpartisan report released Wednesday predicts trouble ahead for America's health care system.
The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation did a nationwide simulation to see what health insurance would look like in 10 years if the national health care system stayed the same.
The report said the number of uninsured Americans would increase by more than 16 million people, which means one in four Americans would not have insurance.
The report also said in a worst-case scenario, the average citizen would spend 68 percent more on health care than they do now, and employers' premiums would double.
