Yes, this is the lowest income area out of the 4 quarters of Ohio, we have no major cities within southeastern Ohio unlike the other 3 quarters having Columbus, Cleveland and Cincinnati. On top of that, you have a poorly informed and poorly educated populace.
When I have explained to a few that most civilized countries in the western hemisphere have some sort of universal healthcare besides Canada, they become arrogant with pride and retort something silly like... "If universal heathcare really worked, The U.S. government would have had universal healthcare years ago".
Good questions Felch, I have a pretty good idea of what their answers to your 3 questions might be.... "A blank stare". Oh, I'm sorry, that would be a reaction, not an answer. Sadly that's probably all I'd get though. LOL

When I talk to people in my jobless, low income, religiously minded, republican dominated area of southeastern Ohio. I find almost everyone totally opposed to allowing their own tax dollars to fund their healthcare, why??? They usually answer....
"Because they don't want to wait in waiting room lines and put up with poor medical services like Canada has to put up with in the Canadian healthcare system".
Of course, most of these same backwards people are appalled that Obama is president, They fear that "He" will take away their guns, They believe that Obama was born in the "country" of Africa etc.... I'm sure you get the picture.
