ACA Suspense

I reported last week that 32 percent of western Kentucky's adult residents under age 65 don't have health insurance. In Christian County, this adds up to more than 22,00 people. (Read the story here.)

In a survey last year, 74 percent of the region's residents said they didn't know enough about the Affordable Care Act to understand how it would affect them personally. It's true many variables will remain, regardless of the Supreme Court's decision tomorrow. But the Washington Post has a great tool for drilling down into the projected effects.

The suspense keeps building. I'll have a story Friday on local reactions to the decision.
