29. I don't think people realize how different things are state by state.

 

These differences are exactly why it is so hard to implement federal laws like the Affordable Health Care Act. Rick Scott of Florida is still acting like it didn't pass or will be repealed any minute now. Florida, which has been under republican rule for more than a decade now, runs more like a corporation (or so they would like it to), from the top down. Since the Governor and both houses of state Congress are republican, they get away with some incredible shit. Luckily, federal judges have been stepping in and declaring some of it unconstitutional, but those are usually only the most agregious cases. I'm glad to be out of Florida now.
