^^Has nothing to do with it ass clown. When you live in BFE you give up a lot of the things the big city people have everywhere. The care is there they just have to drive to get it. Other choice is to move where the everyday care you want is just blocks from you. There can't be two to three hospitals and dozens of other health related clinics to go to in counties that have only 1200 to maybe 1500 people living in it over a 800 sq mil area. It's just a matter of economics.

Best economy ever? Obviously not. Not even close.
