This WaPo story on Tennessee’s rural-health crisis is powerful — but it only mentions the state’s rejection of Medicaid expansion once, in passing. A similar WaPo story last month, on Oklahoma’s crisis, didn’t mention the state’s Medicaid rejection at all.

“One heading in the document about Kris Kobach, in the running for Homeland Security Secretary, listed ‘white supremacy’ as a vulnerability. It cited accusations from past political opponents that he had ties to white supremacist groups.”

Saw someone on CNN blame abuse of kids at the border on Congress for lack of funding. It's worth reiterating that this is not something funding will change. This is punitive. This admin thinks these kids are less than human. They mean it to be a deterrent. They want to hurt them.
