These states have done the analysis. They want out.

What's millions of suffering and dead poor and unemployed families compared to tax cuts for a few thousand rich families! If DH and I had to throw ourselves on the tender mercies of private insurers today, at age 63, I bet we'd be paying at least half our income just for health insurance--and we're better off than most Americans.

(Srsly, I think universal single-payer or at least single-payer catastrophic insurance is the right answer, but this is as close as we can get with today's conservatives & libertarians.)
