Confederate and Union forces once fought in Kansas over the laws governing slavery and the nature of the relationship between U.S. states.

Now, commenters are battling in Kansas over just what pediatric oral health benefits ought to go into the "essential health benefits" (EHB) package required by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (PPACA).
