The Sit-in Continues
My step-mother Pam.
Read up on the TennCare sit-in. There are many opinions on Gov. Bredeson's choice to cut TennCare. Many based on intellect and emotion. Was it just a mismanaged program unable to deliver on its promises? Can it be tweaked and saved? We are one of very few states with such a program. Where do our obligations to help end? I would like to think that in humanity, we will always make the choice that if we are to err, then we should do so on the side of compassion.
I am nowhere close to understanding all that I should about what is so very important to so many Tennesseans. I can only read as much as I can find on the subject. Here are some starting points: TIMC and Pith in the Wind.
