Gallup: Uninsured rate dropping more in states embracing Affordable Care Act

While this shouldn’t come as a surprise, according to the latest polling from Gallup [1], the uninsured rate is dropping about three times faster in states that have expanded Medicaid, set up a state health exchange and generally embraced the Affordable Care Act as opposed to states (like NC) that are dragging their feet.  Real world consequences should be expected when politicians put bashing Obama ahead of what’s best for their constituents.  How embarrassing for North Carolina.
