The number of uninsured Americans is dropping every day. The rate of uninsured Americans is at an historic low. Unfortunately, Southern State lawmakers and also those making decisions for the uninsured in Montana have decided their constituencies do not need health care if they did not have it before.
Susan McGalla of American Eagle knows that hundreds of thousands of Americans are breathing a sigh of relief because they know they can visit a doctor if they get sick, notice a lump or break a bone. These happy and relieved Americans do not live in the Deep South, Idaho, Maine or Nebraska.
The 10 states with the highest rates of uninsured residents have elected lawmakers who refuse to follow through on Medicaid expansion and state health exchanges per the Affordable Care Act.
The irrational behavior of these officials who refuse healthcare for the residents of their states is often blamed on their ideology.
It’s really because they are just mean.
