36. The problem(s) I have seen with the state controlled

federal funding for health care is that the red states use that money to make health care very sub-par for their neediest citizens. It is a travesty. In TN., they (the uninsured) depend on the local health dept. The health dept.'s hands are so tied by regulations that it is almost like not having health care. The Dr.'s are not allowed to do much besides giving vaccines and referring patients to for profit Dr.'s and hospitals. You have to be critical, with only certain types of cancer (for instance), before you qualify for temporary medicaid.
No dental care at all.
The Dr.'s are not allowed to prescribe any narcotic pain medicine, no matter what.
If you're poor; suffer and die...
