Which states are the most liberal and least likely to require health insurance?
A new report finds that the states with the highest and lowest rates of uninsured people in the United States are also the most and least liberal in the country.
The report, from the Public Health Policy Institute at the University of Chicago, analyzed data from the National Health Interview Survey, which is a series of interviews conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau and the National Center for Health Statistics.
It found that the 20 states with a higher proportion of uninsured residents are all states with moderate or higher levels of state government spending on health insurance.
The 20 states that have the lowest rates are all the ones that are heavily dependent on the federal government to pay for their health insurance programs.
In some ways, the study suggests that the most conservative states are those that have higher levels to do with spending and tax levels.
In other ways, it suggests that more liberal states tend to be more liberal than more conservative ones.
The findings are the latest evidence that the Republican Party has not only embraced a vision of government as a social safety net for the poor, but also that the country as a whole is far less liberal than it might seem.
The findings, based on data from a survey of 5,000 adults conducted in 2014, suggest that the liberal and conservative wings of the Republican party are inextricably linked.
The study found that in states with higher levels for both health care spending and taxes, the Republican base was much more likely to have a higher percentage of uninsured than the Democratic base.
The liberal wing of the party was about 3.6 percentage points more likely than the conservative wing to have no health insurance at all.
The conservative wing, by contrast, was just 0.7 percentage points less likely to be uninsured than their liberal base.
On average, the conservative and liberal wings of each party were equally likely to report having health insurance, the survey found.
The only states with slightly more conservative or liberal wings were New Jersey and Virginia, where both sides had more than 1.7 million uninsured people.
For states that were more conservative than the other parties, the report found that those with a greater percentage of people who reported being uninsured tended to be in the Democratic wing of their party, while those with the lowest percentage of those who reported not having health care at all were more likely in the Republican wing.
In a separate study published last month in the Journal of the American Medical Association, researchers at Harvard Medical School found that more than half of people in low-income families who were uninsured had either lost their jobs, lost their homes, or experienced other hardships.
In the study, researchers used data from Medicaid enrollment records and economic analysis of Medicaid payments to look at the relationship between economic and medical status of families and their health.
Researchers found that Medicaid enrollment in low income families was more likely among people who were unemployed, underinsured, or had incomes below 250 percent of the federal poverty level.
The research suggests that poor families were less likely than other families to have Medicaid.
While the study doesn’t directly compare the health outcomes of low- and middle-income people in different states, the researchers found that among the poorest groups, there were larger differences in health outcomes.
Among low-wage workers, for example, more than four in 10 were in poor health, compared to just over one in ten among the highest-wage earners.
Researchers found that a high proportion of Medicaid recipients in states that are more conservative had incomes between 200 percent and 300 percent of poverty.
They also found that fewer Medicaid recipients lived in the middle or lower class.
The researchers concluded that it’s important to remember that it is the health care that is the most important issue for poor people, not the income.
