Oh Haslam...


Well, I come and go from here as my time and health allows. I've had some issues since surgery and don't usually have the ability to sit upright at a keyboard for a long enough period of time.

I heard about a week ago that Tennessee Gov Bill Haslam said no Medicaid expansion under the so called "Obamacare" law.


Its paid in full for the next 3 years by federal funds. Then each year AFTER that Tennessee pays an increasingly small percentage towards the care. By 2020 it will be about 10%.

So... you deny BASIC healthcare to 1 million or so people in the third poorest state IN THE COUNTRY because you are seeking political advancement and to make a point?

That money will be there whether or not you like it dear Gov.

The only thing you are doing is dooming many to death.

Now dearest Gov wants to use the Medicaid money to strike a deal for 'private' health care to those eligible.

Because thats worked SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO well for TennCare already.


Wake up and smell the dying dearest Governor.
