The Train Wreck that is TennCare

Dr. Rangel gives a blow-by-blow account of the TennCare fiasco, laying out in painful detail how this disaster unfolded (as was predictable). It should be required reading for all members of the US Congress, and any other fool who thinks that a single payer, universal access system is good for America.

It is interesting how so many in this country see the problems we have with health care, which have blossomed with the fertilizer provided by government regulations, and ask for yet more fertilizer!

Hat tip to GruntDoc!

UPDATE: See Dr. Tony's thoughts -- he actually has to work in the TennCare system.
