The states that have been most skeptical of President Barack Obama's agenda for health care reform also have some of the highest levels of uninsured people in the nation.
A new study by Gallup shows that large swaths of populations in the South and West -- anywhere from one-in-five to one-in-four individuals -- are currently lacking health insurance coverage.
These same regions also have the largest percentage of populations who believe widely perpetuated mistruths about the Obama agenda, including allegations that the president will set up "death panels" and wants a complete government takeover of the health care system.
It's not just 'What's the Matter with Kansas', never has been. Going against their own self-interest in a time-tested formula and when one Party is comprised of anti-science assholes that have no problem sucking up to bigots and liars this is what happens. A fictional world of grudges -- made all too real.
