  • RED IS GOOD: The color signifies the biggest percentage increases in insured people. Arkansas can thank Obamacare.

Check this New York Times map. Red is good. It signifies the places helped the most by expanded health insurance coverage under Obamacare. Hardly anybody did better than Arkansas.

If you go to the page, you can check the numbers county by county. You'll note high degress of help in areas where Republicans expect to score big Nov. 4 from running against President Obama and his supposedly disastrous health legislation.
