The concept here is simple and elegant: as Mike Huckabee has said, individuals need more "skin in the game". Currently, health costs are generally routed through employers, so most of us don't actually see how expensive our care is.

What does 'skin in the game' mean here?
Does it mean 'get involved'?
From http://www.wordspy.com :
"put skin in the game idiom. To take an active interest in a company or undertaking by making a significant investment or financial commitment."
