This story is a very important and powerful one--especially since it should serve as a "reminder" that the Democratic Party cannot always be trusted to protect our social insurance system!
Note: In fairness, I have seen several "figures" for the final number of cuts to the TennCare rolls. I cannot account for the fluctuations, or differences. I imagine that the numbers changed at various stages, due to the negotiation process with the "Tennessee Justice Center"* and other non-profits.
*The Tennessee Justice Center (TJC) is a non-profit public policy advocacy organization and law firm based in Nashville, Tennessee. It was established in 1996 to represent approximately 1.3 million Tennessee low-income families by helping shape public policy and through class action lawsuits. In 1996, the United States Congress had ordered that federally funded legal services programs no longer pursue class actions. Since its formation, the Tennessee Justice Center has helped thousands of poor families secure needed health care, assistance, and food aid.
