Four states (New York, California, Maryland, and Massachusetts) get 40% of federal healthcare money, yet are only 20% of the population!  That leaves 60% of the money for the other 80% of the population.  
That means for every $100.00 that those 4 states get, the other states average $37.50

None of those states voted for Trump, and all 8 senators of those states are democrats.

As I have mentioned in the last week, healthcare should be a STATE issue.  Republican Senator Lindsay Graham has come out with a state oriented  healthcare plan which will probably be voted on this week.  
Do you think that Republican states will want to get almost 3 times as much money for healthcare as they are now?   Uhh.. I think so!  
Of course the 4 states (8 senators) that will lose half their healthcare money will hate the idea.. but they are all democrats and wouldn't be voting for any Republican plan anyway!  

In fact.. nearly all 52 republican senators will vote for that plan.. and Pence..   The two dyke republicans and senile McCain will probably vote against it....
BUT.. I think a few democrap senators will vote for it since the average state will go from 37.5% of their share of the pie to 100%. 
Even moreso.. because that 37.5% is the AVERAGE.. I'm sure that there are some democrap states that are getting just 25% of their share of the pie.

I have to give credit where credit is due.  In New York, they have what is called "Direct Heating" in which businesses and residences get free heat.
The way it works is they drilled massive tunnels and pipes which pump water into a pit under Hillary Clinton's house that goes all the way down to hell.. where it is turned into steam.. and piped all over New York!  Who said Hillary was worthless?

Seriously though, it's interesting that the "sanctuary cities" loaded with illegal immigrants (notice I didn't say immigrants, but ILLEGAL immigrants - who have no business even being in the country) could not exist if not for massive subsidies.

You can thank Thurston Howell III (i.e. John Kerry) for driving up the cost of healthcare in MA.  One of his last acts as Senator was to STEAL $300 million from the rest of the country by classifying a tiny 19 bed hospital on Nantucket as a "rural hospital."  This stripped away Medicare funding to all of the other rural hospitals in the country and gave it to the super rich hospitals like Mass General.  It's more complicated than I can explain.  Google "The Nantucket Effect".  Our healthcare system is completely crazy when a tiny little 19 bed hospital located on an island for the super rich can have that much of an impact on the entire healthcare system.  The name of the hospital is "Nantucket Cottage Hospital" because  it's literally located inside of a cottage.

Now to be fair these four states do a sizable amount of medical research for the entire world.  These things cost money.  People come from all over the world to go to Mass General, Brigham and Women's and Boston Children's Hospital.
