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.
I fought Tenncare tooth and nail. It took OUR U.S. SENATORS IN TENNESSEE going to HCFA to secure that funding and get the waivers. Yes indeed Fred and Frist darn well at any time could have stopped Taxquist right in his tracks as it was federal dollars involved. Why didn't they? I know why. Covewr the RINO governor at all cost. That's why. Frist even used the plan for his beloved Medicare reform. Yea real conservatives yes indeed./sarcasm
