    How many immigrants does Kentucky have? Are they illegals because tRump won't go after employers that knowingly hire illegals? Are they legal immigrants that have worker visas that daddy bush signed into law? Or are they ancestors of immigrants such as you?

    Low wage workers is the fault of greedy employers. Welfare is due to those employers.

    I don’t know how many immigrants Kentucky has. The state is nearly 90% white. It’s polluted. They don’t have jobs. And now they’re contagious. I’m not sure a lot of immigrants would want to go there.

    Since the outbreaks began in 2016, 30 states have reported cases to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. As of Sept. 20, total cases have reached 26,013 with a 60 percent hospitalization rate.

    Michigan warns residents about hepatitis A risks, and latest cases

    To stop the spread of the virus, the CDC has recommended that 80 percent of the at-risk population be vaccinated. That translates to about 392,000 people.

    Another 64 cases of hepatitis A reported to state

    I guess it just isn’t bad enough to be concerned about.

    That's my reality from 30 years in the trenches of our HC system Dean

    It's not pretty, we don't give a rodent's rear end about each other here.

    you'll also find we've a long history of acquisitions and monopolization that all lead to the insurance cabals coffers.

    and while the reps are overt about it, the dems feign sympathy, both are greased by said entity to sell us all out

    Homosexuals and criminal illegal aliens are the primary sources of these epidemics. But blame it on dopers so nobody has to lose some votes or offend some deviants and criminals.

    So now they're trying to blame Appalachia for the filthy habits of LA's Finest now? lol what a hoot.
