Do you think Kentucky has a chance at winning that bid? With how America is, I'm not sure how you can really say one state or a few states that are underachieving is problematic. It's all connected, whether you like it or not. The success of California contributes to Kentucky and the success of Kentucky's manufacturing, agricultural, and coal allowed America to become more dominant.
    The money is shown in its allocation based on what Statquo quoted. I'm not pulling this stuff out of thin air. It still doesn't change the point of Mitch McConnell fulfilling a self defeating prophecy in his own state. I'm aware conservatives don't like spending but that doesn't change the circumstances in which federal tax dollars prop up his state.

    I'll just say this because I'm already aware of your sources. If Mitch could reduce the federal spending for Kentucky and make them the least dependent on federal welfare, he would do it. He's just scum. My point is really directed towards the reasoning for these midwest states to be underperforming. I really don't care for Mitch. He's the Republican version of Nancy Pelosi. Maybe worse because at least Pelosi is good at what she does. Mitch is just a pos who sucks.

    He could do that. But he won't do that. Because he wants more money for Kentucky all the while talking like every other state should take and get less.

    It's 2021 if you still think our current health insurance system is good and socializing it wouldn't drastically cut down on costs, you're just being willfully obtuse. It's just insane how much we spend on healthcare and how few have access to it. Insane. Our health insurance system is a laughingstock.

    A laughingstock that lets far too many people die and straddles far too many people with debt.

    It's just so baffling how terrified you right-wingers are all the time of made up threats. Things that will never kill you. Things that will never effect you. But you know what will? Your health. Yet here you are, insisting that we shouldn't ensure people have access to healthcare. Almost in a "**** you" sort of way.

    I don't know man. I have two people very close to me who have literally had their lives destroyed because of freak health accidents and a health insurance system that is so cruel and archaic. It's close to home. It's why I always say it's the thing I care about most. And it's just stupid what we prioritize as a country over just protecting our own. Just making sure people can be healthy and happy. I don't get it. It's cruel.

    The most expensive healthcare of any major nation that covers the least amount of people. And you have people still claiming our system is best. What a joke.

    No, Mitch is very effective at what he does, it's just that he doesn't have our interest at the center.

    His interests are getting judges and tax cuts that will make sure our overlords are protected from liability.
