"Requests for state approval of major medical products in Tennessee have increased three- or four-fold this year, said Jim Christoffersen of the Tennessee Health Services and Development Agency, which grants certificates of need for health care facilities."

Should the state be in this business? Why is the state in the business of granting certificates of need? Is the state protecting the citizens from the curse of too many hospital beds and surgical centers? Does the state have a conflict of interest since Erlanger and other hospitals are owned by goverment?

Time for the city to get out of the sewer business.

Let's put the sewer system up for bid.

Since AGW has been exposed as a hoaxed, why are we bothering worring about our carbon foot print.

"since even the relatively low Medicaid reimbursements are an improvement over a total loss from uninsured patients"

Ms. Bregel,

Are you sure uninsured patients never pay? My understanding is the uninsured on average pay 5% more than medcaid(35% of full book billing vs. 30% paid by medicaid) You need to check that.

I'm sure you will.
