Southern states, some of the poorest, block Obamacare because ???


From our good friend @anomaly100 at FreakOutNation:

The main opposition to Obamacare comes from Southern states, including from Governors who lead some of the nation’s poorest and unhealthiest states. It’s a GOP trend. We see the same thing happening with badly needed clinics being forced by Republicans to close down in rural areas in Southern States, even in states where Planned Parenthood does not offer abortion services, yet those same states have the highest teenage pregnancy rates. The reasoning behind this is a strong distrust of Obama, mostly from areas that supported the Tea Party, where the President was tagged a Muslim- Atheist-Socialist -Marxist. (It’s not as if we didn’t notice.)


Gov. Nikki Haley said in contrast to Republicans deciding to implement Obamacare in their state, “Not in South Carolina, she said at the recent Conservative Political Action Conference. “We will not expand Medicaid on President Obama’s watch. We will not expand Medicaid ever.”

    The "Bible Belt" states are following a pattern of behavior being exhibited by numerous Republican-controlled state governments during the past four years -- placing political party strategy and dogmatism ahead of the health, safety, and welfare of their constituents.
