The OP is probably referring to the state legislature, the governor, and people appointed by the governor.

The state government is controlled by Republicans and though not all Republicans "hate" every aspect of the government, a large contingent of party could be accurately described as hating government involvement in areas they don't agree with--like welfare, disability, healthcare etc...

The leader of the party has explicitly advocated for allowing and encouraging the current healthcare system (the ACA) to implode, so that he can replace it with something else. He also placed people in charge of departments who explicitly stated that such departments shouldn't exist.
