Here is a tentative list of the states with a health-care backbone as well as a list of states on the fence. This secondary list needs a barrage of emails to those governors’ offices and fast!
The “Backbone 17” are Alabama, Alaska, Georgia, Idaho, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.
The 12 fence sitters are Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Indiana, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Utah, and West Virginia. I would look for most of this group to join with the Backbone 17, which largely defang Obamacare and make funding political suicide.
