Yesterday, Democrat Sen. Jay Rockefeller of West Virginia said that race could be a factor that motivates some people to oppose of Obamacare.
Vox.com decided that Rockefeller’s statement deserved to be “Voxsplained” for reasons of simplification:
Racists are likelier to oppose health reform when they think about Barack Obama http://t.co/W0dz1dOHo2

In other words, if the millions of people who received insurance cancellation notices because of the implementation of Obamacare wouldn’t have thought of Obama after they read the letters, they would love the ACA … or something.
Yet another “Voxsplanation” causes shaking heads:

Here’s a take that will never be “Voxsplained” in an honest way:
