Health care

Where do those without health insurance live?, Floyd Norris looked through some of the recently published census data on who's uninsured.

Though it tends to be the "red"/"conservative" states that have the uninsured groups, the actual population in those states tend to be poor black or hispanics who vote strongly democratic.

The Public Imperative argues that one thread in the resistance to a public option is that many in America are deeply offended that there's a chance someone could be freeloading off of their hard work.

Combining this leads me to think that conservatives think we shouldn't extend health care, because that'd just be for the lazy freeloading brown people.

(Obviously sad conservatives probably have never encountered being at the wrong end of social privilege).
