It’s probably a tie.

So why don’t we take a closer look at that claim, shall we?
Let’s say you’re an intravenous drug-user, and HIV positive. All other factors being equal, will you pay more for health insurance coverage under Obamacare than you would otherwise?
Hmmm, … what about if you’re diagnosed with cancer?
