The map showing which Mississippians get to pay more for health insurance

The Mississippi House Republicans, under the leadership of Speaker Philip Gunn (R - Clinton), voted last week to stick with a federally-run health insurance exchange rather than implementing the exchange created by Insurance Commissioner Mike Chaney (R).  That federally-run exchange doesn't cover all Mississippians, meaning that folks in the covered counties will be able to purchase insurance at a much lower rate than folks in the excluded counties.  Here's a map that shows which Mississippians will have to pay much more each month for health insurance.  If you live in a blue county, you're fine.  But if you live in a brown county, you're getting hosed by Gov. Bryant and the House Republicans, who are against the Chaney exchange.
