    This is why Mainers are considered the hillbillies of New England. The state is poorer than dirt and almost everyone I met while I lived there was on some type of government assistance.

    “States that have been more hostile to the law will receive proportionally less money for advertising and outreach than states that have partnered with the federal government, according to data compiled by The Associated Press from federal and state sources.” This sounds rather political to me when the thrust of the act was to make sure everyone would have equal access to affordable healthcare. But that is the way this administration operates-rewarding friends and dissing opponents. How about all the waivers granted (or awarded) to other friends of the administration? So much for equality. If the healthcare law is so good for everyone why all the waivers and why doesn’t it apply to the lawmakers who passed it? This doesn’t quite fit the social justice narrative we keep hearing about. It looks more like it was designed for everyone except the elite, governing group and its friends.

      I think some states will receive proportionally less because they have put the burden on the Federal Gov’t to implement their exchange and therefore most of the expense will be bourne by the Feds. They don’t need more money.
