Red state

Notice how the red jumps out at you on these two maps? Look where the uninsured people are: Texas (no surprise there), Florida (ditto), Nevada, the teeny-tiny state of Alaska and, gulp, Montana. Nevada just approved the federal Medicaid expansion. Texas, Florida, Alaska and, gulp, Montana have turned it down.

Not hard to tell where poor people who get sick are most likely to die in coming decades. No wonder a move is on to fix Montana’s problem.
