I thought we were too passive aggressive to be rude:)
As the hospitals lay off more staff, these people will need government assistance to make ends meet in these rural counties. We, the taxpayer, will be picking up that tab. So not only do we not get the federal money.....and more sick people will need more unreimbursed medical expenses somewhere......but we will also be paying unemployment and food assistance to the newly unemployed. Great job TN legislature!
Apologies Gregory Hanners......totally missed that!
You are quoting Laffer? Are you serious? He, who himself admits to not inventing his curve at all but appropriating from Keynes? The same Laffer who was denied tenure at USC (and was a laughing stock) and then moved to Pepperdine where again, he was denied tenure? So he moved to TN and set up shop in the post-academic world where he gets big love from Dave Ramsey? Hahahahahaha.
Or we could just accept the medicaid expansion which would create and save a lot of jobs and it wouldn't cost us a penny. If they really cared about their "laser like focus" on jobs, jobs, jobs instead of merely handing out cash, cash, cash to their buddies.
Nashville is always worried about "becoming Atlanta". In this particular instance, I wish we were.
Everyone who wants to be governor is pro-charter in TN.
