"Full of high sentence, but a bit obtuse."

And So It Begins

Tuesday, July 05, 2005

While he's busy ordering the flying of the confederate flag, Missouri Governor Matt Blunt is also cutting a swath through the medical coverage of poor Missourians. Blunt's first round of Medicare cuts goes into effect today, and the region's largest provider of medical services for the under/un-insured has already announced that it will have to cut several of those services.

Because someone in my church was a high-level staffer for the campaign of Blunt's opponent, Clair McCaskil, I paid little attention to the race, assuming that the Democratic McCaskil would win (she did, after all, oust the incumbent Democrat in the primary). Now I'm wishing I would have paid more attention.
