To: Fred

Uh Excuse me senator Thompson but who as a U.S. senator went yearly to HCFA to secure funding {waivers} for Hillary Care or Tenncare {Al and Hillary’s Medicaid program} in Tennessee. First it was Gore and Matthews IIRC then it was you Mr Thompson and also Mr Frist. I would not trust Fred on health care as far as I could see him. Fred could have helped stop a mad man RINO governor. Instead he enebled him.

This plays right into Fred's Federalism

The dipstick fed govt forces mandates on the state regarding medicare...guess what...THEY WANT THE STATES TO COVER IT!!!

They can go right to Algore's favor global warming place. If they want it mandated then they sure as hell can pay for it too.

Fred stop Scumquist ? With what ? You have an odd expectation for what a federal Senator was supposed to do with a state Governor. And TennCare was the brainchild of rodent Gov. McWherter.

What an idiotic thing to say.
Once TennCare existed, Tennessee's representatives in the Federal Government had an obligation to their constituents to secure funding. TennCare went broke, and all of the adults who depended on it were thrown off, many remain uninsured today. These are people who would not have been in positions to be dependent on it had it not been created in the first place, but like MediCare or any other entitlement program, once it is created it creates a dependency that must be funded, and the elected politicians have a duty to the state that sent them to Washington to ensure the Federal Government does. That is about the most idiotic thing I have ever seen for someone to actually blame Fred for performing his Constitutional duty for the people of his state!
