    I said disproportionate....not majority.

    I do consider that.

    If you could set aside your need to be partisan, I asked if there was really any damage to the red states if those minorities found themselves in trouble.

    Your point about the majority being poor white is a consideration depending on how they vote as a whole.

    I was more asking a question of does it really hurt the red states like some claim.

    Anymore that appears to be very true.

    It is a weird system.

    My point was that it won't be the GOP dying by the roadside.

    Red States are not 100% GOP.

    Please consider the point instead of satisfying your need to make partisan statements.

    and the answer is still no... not disproportionately. fwiw, poor people get health care.

    it's working class people who don't get employer based insurance who have the issue.

    here's a number for you.... prior to the ACA, over 50% of our bankruptcies were due to unanticipated medical issues.

    you think our country can't do what every other western nation can? provide health services to our people? we aren't good enough?

    it's a horrible system. the ACA was just the most conservative way of dealing with it... and was taken from the heritage foundation. the fact that the right decided the black guy in the white house suddenly made it problematic for the repubs doesn't make it any less a creation of conservatives.

    I never said it was O.K.

    I asked if it was possible for the OP to be somewhat misguided by saying that 9 of 10 red states are going to be more hurt by cutting off payments. If the payments hurt a disproporationate amount of democratic leaning folks....does the GOP care ? I am not saying they shouldn't.

    actually, it will be... and they're going to be very mad at Donald when they figure it out.

    or do you think that the GOP responded to all those protests because they were dems carrying signs?

    You can't really repeat this enough.
