EDIT: not that your point about the south taking more federal aid than the north in general is not true, but I object to the idea that that alone means the hospitals are worse.

I never claimed that ALL southern hospitals are crappier than all Northern ones. I made a generalization that wasn't supposed to be taken 100% literally. It should've been quite obvious, when I said "SOME crappy hospital" in "SOME southern or appalachian state".

I'm sure there are plenty of nice hospitals in liberal/moderate havens of Red States like Austin, Texas or advanced University hospitals in UNC/Duke, etc

So what exactly is your point? The hypothetical situation you described, in which the bombing happened in some part of the South without good hospitals, would basically never happen. It's like hypothesizing about it happening in Amish Country in Pennsylvania. Most of the good-sized cities in the South have excellent healthcare, and rural areas do not have the population density/relevance to be targets.

Oh, and there are cities anywhere in the country where poor people have more access to the very best healthcare in their city than poor people in the South do?

That's not a Southern issue, that's a poverty issue. Lots of poor people in the South do get treated at the best hospitals. Lots do not, and get treated at worse hospitals instead. Lots of poor people in Boston get treated at Harvard's hospitals. Lots do not, and get treated at worse hospitals instead.

In most Blue States, the hospitals in poorer areas are better funded, because those particular states have higher taxes on the rich/businesses/property owners to pay for said funding. Additionally, there are more programs for preventative healthcare, thus improving the health of the poor.

This explains why Blue States typically rank much higher in terms of both healthcare and the overall health of their citizenry
