Test from treo
This is just a test to see if I can blog from my phone in anticipation of the DNC. I've got to practice. So check out the USA Today cover story on how Tennessee is looking to cut costs on their Medicaid program (called Tenncare) in order to keep 20% of the population enrolled. Caps on doctor visits and eliminating some brand name drugs. Seems smart to me. I am a big fan of universal or at least widespread government programs (I hate that phrase. . .we need a better one) that serve lots of people. If the price of widespread participation in the program is fewer benefits than if only a few participate, no problem. Serve a little to a lot instead of a lot to a little.
