It might have been the least surprising Obamacare development of the year: The partial enrollment numbers released Friday show that this year's enrollment will be lower than last year's, after the Trump administration pulled outreach advertising in the final week. These are the states that saw the biggest drop, according to the results in the 39 states that use HealthCare.gov (we're still waiting for results from the other states):

  • Georgia: - 93,965
  • Texas: - 78,918
  • Louisiana: - 70,571
  • North Carolina: - 64,329
  • Missouri: - 45,819

Between the lines: It's not a shocker to see Georgia and Texas at the top of the list — most of the political leaders in those states are hostile to the law. But in Louisiana, which has a Democratic governor, Bob Herman notes that there could be a different explanation: Louisiana expanded Medicaid last summer, which means many low-income people who had Obamacare likely switched to Medicaid if they qualified.

Why it matters: The controversial move brings an abrupt end to the possibility of Stone spending time behind bars. He had been scheduled to report to prison on July 14.
