    [cynicism alert]

    . . . that Frist is just bein' a good businessman and tryin' to clear up some of the "uncertainty" that job creators hate so much, do you? I'd like to think he wrote this piece for all the right reasons, since he was on 'em about it last year 'n all, but . . . well . . . just sayin'.

    I imagine the job creators at HCA are just beside themselves with "uncertainty", maybe so much so that they wanted one of their largest shareholders, who happens to be a doctor, to come out and call off the attack dogs so they can get back to figuin' out how to maximize profit on the new health care playing field. Again, just sayin'. I'm sure he's on the up 'n up. ;-)

      reasoning in his plea. He spelled out very clearly why the state exchanges are good for every state and for the country in detail. Actually unsurprising given that they were a Republican idea in the first place.

      Stop the party of Gut & Spend policies that gut our Earned Benefits programs like Social Security and Medicare and spends on tax breaks for the wealthy elite.

        . . . and he has been on the same message since early last year, so if he's not sincere at least he's consistent, which is more than can be said for his party's nominee. And good work on the layout at TWWP. I sent the link to my conservative Mom's email forward list. Should be lots of heads exploding tomorrow in Sun City West!
