What a surprise. The bastions of liberalism, replete with public services and entitlements, are better for life expectancy that places where you’re expected to fend for yourself and life free.
I’ll choose liberty over security any day.
I haven’t read the article but I assume it’s the hospitals and the general high standards of the doctors.
I’d want to check this research a little deeper. I cannot imagine that inner city dwellers would have a longer life expectancy. It just fits way too conveniently with a liberal agenda.
I would have guessed the opposite, considering the comparative crime and homicide rates.
Dig more deeply, and it is the wealthy areas within the blue states that have longer lifespans, not those on entitlements. Longevity is largely class-based across the country, it is only that the concentrations of that demographic vary by region.
Ditto... They can have the uber-regulated life in CA and NY. I choose to spend my final years where vestiges of liberty still exist.
It just might have something to do with where people do a lot of hard physical labor.
