    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
    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
    more efficiently,
    than government.


    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.
