Over 80% of ObamaCare Enrollees Live in Trump States

More than 4 out of 5 people who have signed up for health care coverage under ObamaCare this year live in states that Donald Trump won in 2016, according to an AP analysis. People in Trump states total 7.3 million of the 8.8 million signed up so far. The four states with the highest sign-ups are Florida, Texas, North Carolina and Georgia. "There's politics, and then there's taking care of yourself and your family," said analyst Chris Sloan of Avalere Health. "You can have political views about a program like the Affordable Care Act, but when you get an opportunity to get subsidized health insurance for you and your family ... politics is a distant consideration."

Ok, so how is it that the people who benefit most from "Obamacare" are represented by politicians who want to repeal it? Tribalism will be the death of this country.

Never would have guessed the numbers were that staggeringly red. IMHO it says something about what unions do for people though.

As Jimmy Kimmel proved, the average dolt on the street loves the Affordable Care Act and hates Obamacare. I'll wager these folks think they are signing up for something their Tangerine Dream brought them...

Voting is a great idea.... Till you speak to the average voter.

Well, duh. Dems benefit from Reps catering to the rich and Reps benefit from the Dems catering to people who don't want to do anything. Together, they complete America.

Americans aren't controlled by the party they vote for or the legislation their vote brings about. We all have to follow the same laws (except the laws Dems feel people should not follow like free speech and immigration). If you want to go down the road of people only have to follow the laws that their party brings about, there would be no income for the Dems.

RE #6

We all have to follow the same laws... except Donald J. Trump.

What law has he broken? Insider trader like Pelosi, Reid or Bush? Murder like the Kennedy's? How about giving guns to cartels like Obama and Bush? How using government agencoes like the IRS as tools of war against against US citizens?

"What law has he broken?"
