Opposition to Obamacare is a simple matter of political math
Sacramento Bee

For most congressional Republicans, opposition to the Affordable Care Act is a simple matter of political math. The latest data by American Community Survey, which tracks demographic trends, help explain why some Republicans in Congress so readily attack Obamacare, and why Democrats adamantly support it. Although there are notable exceptions, Democrats represent most districts where the greatest numbers of uninsured residents reside. Republicans, in turn, need not rely on the votes of the people who lack health insurance and would gain most from Obamacare.
