"The ten least healthy states were all Red States and seven of them were also Right-to-Work States" [View all]

"Looking at all of the States we can see that 18 of the top 25 were Blue States and 16 of those were Union States. Blue States represented 72% of the healthiest 25 states.
Looking at the sickest states, the ones that ranked as the lowest 25, we can see that 18 of the sickest 25 were Red States. Red States represented 72% of the sickest 25 states.
What about Right-to-Work States and Citizens' health? There are currently 23 Right-to-work States. Only one, Mormon Utah is in the top ten in health ranking. Five Right-to-Work States are in the top twenty healthiest states. That's 22% of the Right-to-Work States. Pretty shabby! Seven of the ten least healthy states (all Red States) are also Right-to-Work States.
Another point to consider, of the 24 states that went for Romney and against Obama and Obamacare, eleven were former members of the Confederacy and eight were in former territories which allowed slavery and nineteen are Right-to-Work States.
There is a recurring theme among these numbers; Slavery and Sickness."
