So, on one of thousands of issues, the Feds and government in general have their hands in our pockets, fleecing us for their own benefit and that of their benefactors and K Street lobbyists. By the end of 2016, the uninsured rate in Kentucky and Arkansas, the two states that expanded coverage, had dropped by more than 20 percentage points relative to Texas-the rate was 7.4% in Kentucky, 11.7% in Arkansas, and 28.2% in Texas.

Before the ACA, high-risk pools really weren't working for the states that had them, according to Sally Pipes, president and CEO of the Pacific Research Institute in San Francisco.
