Missouri makes a pretty disgusting list

According to a Kaiser Family Foundation  study, well, read it for yourself:

Living in a red state is hazardous to your health

The 12 states with the highest mortality rates:
1. Mississippi
2. Alabama
3. West Virginia
4. Oklahoma
5. Kentucky
6. Louisiana
7. Arkansas
8. Tennessee
9. South Carolina
10. Georgia
11. Indiana
12. Missouri
As the Daily Kos article states:
Of the 25 states above the national average, 19 are blue and just six are red. Of the 25 states below the national average, 17 are "red" and just eight are "blue."

Environmental policies, access to health insurance, workplace safety regulations ... these things matter.

So, congratulations, Jefferson City, Missouri legislators and Missourians. You're getting exactly what you're voting for and spending on.

And it isn't people's health or best interests.
