    but your comment reminded me of something I forgot to mention in the diary.

    This is,
    in fact,
    an example of outsourcing;
    the company receiving the calls
    and sending the info to the state
    is,
    in fact,
    an outside contractor,
    a contractor that already serves
    a few other states.

    Imagine a Republican Governor,
    approached by a salesman,
    pitching the idea of a private company
    providing this service,
    imagine the Republican Governor,
    filled with the unshakeable belief,
    the Republican belief,
    that private business
    ALWAYS
    does
    EVERYTHING
    better,
    more efficiently,
    than government.

    Always.

    Of course,
    such a Governor
    will use tax dollars,
    "tax and spend,"
    to pay a private firm
    to fleece the taxpayers.

    I forgot to put that in the diary.

    And I was busy entertaining
    an old friend,
    who came to visit me
    from out of town,
    I was busy with her
    when the diary was "hot."

    Thanks for including the outsourcing topic.

    Thanks again.
