Well, what's is clear, that despite GOP efforts to undermine Obamacare, it's working. In fact, Los Angeles Times reporter David Lauter says: "All 10 states with the largest percentages of uninsured adults now have Republican governors and legislatures."

Of course, the Republicans want Obamacare to fail and haven't proposed a serious alternative. But to their chagrin, the states where the governors and legislature are Democratic, Lauter says statistics demonstrate they have "The lowest percentage" of uninsured adults.

So, the verdict is in: 10 states dominated by Republicans haven't taken advantage of Obamacare because they hate Obama and want his presidency to fail more than they care about affordable health care for their citizens. And in the Democratic-controlled states, Americans enjoy more health care coverage at affordable prices.

I think it's clear that the GOP is more interested in undercutting Obama than providing health care to Americans. Is this the right way to govern? Let the uninsured suffer in your state because you have a grudge against the president? I don't think so.

This is why it's so important to vote Democratic and defeat the Republicans that don't care about the people in the 10 states they control.
