An Obamacare migration?
The country's uneven embrace of the Affordable Care Act raises the possibility that some people may migrate from states that have rejected the law to ones that are fully participating. The migrants could include not only the uninsured but health-care professionals in search of work. Experts say it is too early to predict how many people may move: Not only is the law new, but it has faced some serious technical difficulties. If the past is any indication, however, uninsured people living near the state line may indeed change ZIP codes —and state affiliations — if it will put health care within their reach. The numbers are likely to be modest, however (ALJAZEERA)
