In this edition of Brookings Data Now: 20 states expanded Medicaid under ACA; only 6 diplomatic outposts in China, 5 in India; 68 car bomb attacks per month this year in Iraq; China's hold of U.S. Treasuries.
Fifteen have a Democratic governor, 5 a Republican one. Of the 15 states that are not expanding Medicaid under ACA, 14 have Republican governors. Fifteen other states are leaning either toward or against expansion, or consulate considering alternative models.
The U.S. has 5 outposts, including the embassy, in India. That is roughly one outpost per 200 million people in each country, compared to one U.S. diplomatic outpost for every 10 million people in the European Union and the Americas.
Violence is on the rise in Iraq this year after low-level violence for the last few years, but there are some reasons to be hopeful.
Japan holds $1.1 trillion.
