The Commonwealth fund created a handy info graphic to show the key findings from its big new survey of insurance coverage. Here's a big chunk of it:
Among adults who earn less than poverty wages in states that didn't expand Medicaid, the uninsured rate is 36 percent, a decline of two percentage points (termed not statistically significant) from last year. That compares to a dramatic drop from 28 percent to 17 percent in states that expanded Medicaid.States that didn't take Medicaid aren't reaping the benefit of having less uninsured people. Those benefits are things like hospitals not losing as much money treating people who don't have insurance, and increased revenue, more jobs, and more economic activity by all those people who have more disposable income because they have affordable health care. Or forcing older couples to separate to keep regular Medicaid.
More than 5 million people are stuck in the Medicaid gap. More than 250,000 of them are veterans. People are dying because of it. And that's all on the GOP.
