What's your recommendation for casualty rich targets as far as WMD, terrorism and necessary medical care? To hell with them, it's New York City, Washington D.C. or some other big city? That's mighty white of you. I guess we need to worry about attacks on Bumfuk in the middle of nowhere.
Is there anywhere in the U.S. that isn't "Bumfuk" outside of NY and Wash? Or is the rest of the country "Bumfuk" to you?
I don't have a recommendation. That's why I asked you what you suggested.
Personally I have no problem if NY'ers want to pay higher taxes to keep medical facilities open. Hospitals are like any other business...supply/demand and generation of enough capital to keep the doors open. Obviously NY is over-saturated with hospitals. The cost of keeping these facilities open for a "what if" situation would be astronomical.
I live within the perimeter of a nuclear site (literally in Bumfuk). If disaster strikes, the nearest hospital on a good day is an hour away. In a disaster, it would probably be three hours away. There are four surrounding counties each with one hopsital. Those four hospitals could never absorb the casualties of such a disaster. Should somebody open and maintain a medical facility near here "just in case"?
As I posted to you earlier, I'm not being antagonistic, only trying to understand what you think should be done when dollars clash with reality.
