WASHINGTON, DC — A new map on the White House’s website is missing Michigan Congressman Dan Benishek’s entire district.

Benishek, R-Iron County, posted a photo of the map that’s missing the entire Upper Peninsula on his Facebook page Friday.

“Considering President Obama visited the U.P. only a few years ago, you would think he would remember to include it in the maps on his website,” the caption on his post read.

The map, released Friday, details the cost of states refusing to expand Medicaid coverage.

UPDATE (9 p.m. Nov. 8)- The White House has now added the Upper Peninsula to the map.
