Right wingers don't live as long

 life expectancy, America

It would probably be more accurate to say "people ruled by right wingers, and at their mercy" don't live as long. The shorter lifespans are in Red States, true; but I suspect that it's people in the Black Belt and Native American reservations -- people who suffer worst from Republican rule but don't support it -- who actually bring the average down.

I think Kevin is correct in that it probably closely tracks where there is no expanded medicare coverage, and in addition to be a measure of politics it is also a measure of poverty. In fact it probably tracks poverty better than anything else.
