TennCare Protestors Unmoved
Some excellent coverage here of the TEN-WEEKS of constant protest at the State Capitol over TennCare from Facing South. I happened to catch one conversation in a Morristown pharmacy that drug stores have lost hundreds and hundreds of normal daily prescriptions due to the changes, which is likely to end in job cuts to defray lost costs. Too easy to heap blame on Gov. Bredesen who has been the only state politician to even face the failure of the Legislature to provide oversight controls, or admit that former Gov. Sundquist poured money into the medical plan as well has padding pockets of his pals.
