I kind of have doubts about that, unless there's been absolute malfeasance for the past few years. Money doesn't come out of nowhere, and if they're already doing their best with what they have, there isn't going to just be extra money lying around. There are federal grants townships receive, too. The township boards here do a decent job, for the most part. Only so much they can do without enough money though; no way to find more money if you're already doing your best. Fact: rural living is not cost-effective. Nobody could afford to do it without "socialism". Cities are subsidizing rural areas, in medical matters and other stuff like road maintenance too. Obviously I don't mind that, but let's not pretend rural areas are some kind of Libertarian utopia where everybody takes care of themselves. I guess I don't think that would make much difference. Pet insurance (which is unregulated) is fairly expensive considering the relatively low cost of vet care (a week at the vet in critical care is not going to cost $70,000 like it will at a human hospital). So I don't think unregulated human insurance would be affordable either.
