Afp- You guys need to understand the rules of health care reform in Tennessee. There are only 3 and easy to remember :
1. Don’t do anything to piss us off.
2. Anything you do will piss us off.
3. Don’t do anything at all.
Tf- Don’t worry. Our plan is to
1.Hold task force meetings to discover a plan we already decided on….
2. To tell the federal government a plan we already know they will say no to and then to blame them for “not working with us.”
3. Meanwhile we will continue to tell people that Insure Tennessee, even though it was free, is impractical and costs too much and we had a better idea.
And in the end we follow rule number 3.
Do you think the people in Tennessee will buy it?
Afp- The poor people won’t but they have never mattered anyway. The rest of the people. Based on past experience they will buy anything.
Congratulations. Sounds like you got a plan.
