What America can expect by example of Tennessee's present health care 'Disaster'!

Way back on 6/6/09 representative Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) promised that Tennessee's government-run health insurance plan TennCare would be a "disaster." She was right...it is! She warned that a federally sponsored public option would likely result in a similar outcome. State spending in Tennessee, accelerated from 2.5 billion dollars in 1995 to 8 billion in 2004 because people dropped their private insurance in favor of the "public option."

Sen. Doug Jackson discusses TennCare with WKRN.
As of Feb. 2010, TennCare is already facing 9% budget cuts!

Congressman Blackburn discusses the TennCare "gamble" on Face the Nation!
"Over a decade ago Tennessee took the gamble that near term expecdetures could be offset by long term savings.....but they never materialized in either Tenn, Mass or Maine!"

Marsha Blackburn was right.

We lived through the disaster of TennCare.

The same thing will happen with Obamacare, only worse.

But 400 BILLION on unconstitutional health care is ok?

Prescription Drug Benefit.
The final version (conference report) of H.R. 1 would create a prescription drug benefit for Medicare recipients. Beginning in 2006, prescription coverage would be available to seniors through private insurers for a monthly premium estimated at $35. There would be a $250 annual deductible, then 75 percent of drug costs up to $2,250 would be reimbursed. Drug costs greater than $2,250 would not be covered until out-ofpocket expenses exceeded $3,600, after which 95 percent of drug costs would be reimbursed. Low-income recipients would receive more subsidies than other seniors by paying lower premiums, having smaller deductibles, and making lower co-payments for each prescription. The total cost of the new prescription drug benefit would be limited to the $400 billion that Congress had budgeted earlier this year for the first 10 years of this new entitlement program. The House adopted the conference report on H.R. 1 on November 22, 2003 by a vote of 220 to 215 (Roll Call 669).
Marsha Blackburn Voted FOR this bill.
