The irony of it:
Research shows areas in Wash. state where Obamacare has helped the most are places where people have highest death rates

February 24, 2017



SEATTLE, WA.) -- A look at the numbers shows regions in our state with the highest percentage of people with insurance made possible through the Affordable Care Act (ACA or simply Obamacare) are in the rural areas that also have the highest rates of death from medical conditions among people under 65.

A Seattle Times report published Feb. 24 says a repeal of Obamacare would hit Washington state pretty hard, but nowhere near as hard as it will hammer the rural parts of the state where people are the sickest.

Across the country, those rural areas are typically where Donald Trump's presidential bid received strong support from voters.

From the report:

...in Washington state a look at the data shows that regions with the highest percentage of people under 65 with insurance made possible by ACA are in rural areas where people are more likely to die from disease at a relatively young age.

....the state legislature s divided Washington into 10 regions for the administration of health services. Of these 10 regions, two of them have a significantly higher concentration of people insured through Obamacare. They are called Timberlands and Spokane.

...Timberlands and Spokane are the two regions that happen to be the sickest areas in the state.

... In 2015 people under 65 in the Timberlands region died from disease at the highest rate in in the state -- 217 per 100,000 population or about double King County’s rate.

...the Spokane region, which includes six counties in Northeast Washington, has the second highest rate of coverage from Obamacare and there almost 17% of the population under 65 have recently enrolled in the ACA and that region ranks second for the rate of people who are seriously ill at a relatively young age.
