    If you throw out the deep south, what's the result?

    Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish and it won't do him any damn good without a hook, line and sinker, and a pond with fish in it.

    •  Is there a crosstab for (0+ / 0-)

      whether they have employer provided insurance?

      I'd bet a big chunk of that repeal/no opinion crowd has insurance that way.

      I think I saw a crosstab for age - again, if they've got Medicare, what do they care? There's lots of that older crowd that really don't give a damn about anybody else - just don't cost them any money. Whether they can afford it or not isn't the issue.

      That's the same crowd that screams the loudest about any tiny increase in property taxes, even if it's just a few bucks. And ESPECIALLY if it funds a new school or more teachers. They seem to get really pissed off about that.

      I don't, but apparently I care about the future more than most people my age.
