Just imagine instead of a small state revolt, a national revolt that could occur once SS/Med taxes are raised 10% to fix the crisis for another 5 years. If I were an AARP executive, I'd be pushing hard for the rights of the working class wage slaves along with those freshly retired.

Great post, hey pay a visit to the political forum at this site and add your opinions. I'm getting out numbered by the "the government can solve all problems, through money at it and tax the rich more, and then blame Bush if it doesn't work" liberals there.

I actually knew zero about TennCare (retiring with Blue Cross so did not think to inquire about other companies/programs and never heard of TennCare) before I read the Schwartzenegger/Nashville article on Yahoo's News Opinion page. I read those Opinion page articles every day and opened the article because I saw "Nashville" in the title. Then I came here and saw someone posted on the very same TennCare topic. It's an interesting part of Tennessee's recent history (socialized medicine and tie to a whiff of an income tax that enraged citizens enough for them to revolt at the state capital) that I hadn't read anywhere before last week.

I understand the Canadian system of socialized medical care is so bad that people come into the US for medical treatment.

I know what's going down in California but that's a different state forum discussion.

This is good info, however becoming political. Instead of moving the whole thread to the "politics" forum, I am going to leave it here as it does mostly pertain to the TennCare issue, but am going to close it and leave it at what is already posted. If anyone would care to continue this topic, please post it on the politics forum.
Thank you.
