There are some very good television journalists in this town. Ferrier is not one of them. I've never understood why Channel 4 tries to pass him off as a serious investigative journalist - he's an embarrassment. Glad the TBI exposed this ratings hype-machine.
Think we could get her to run for Congress against that liberal Marsha Blackburn?
This governor may be an idiot and a wimp, but I'm quite sure he has people on his staff capable to explaining - even to him - the basics of Medicaid and the ACA expansion. I'm also sure his political staff has made him aware that he's trapped by the wingnuts in his own party and must try to invent a plausible excuse for turning down billions of healthcare dollars from the feds.
This choice will further impoverish Tennesseans and make our economic and business climate inferior to that of competitor states. Even Haslam knows it. He just doesn't have the guts or leadership skills to do any better.
Names Jeff. Please give the names of those voting for this hateful measure. They can't be shamed - we know that. But their constituents should know.
Please post the names of those who cast votes for and against this bill.
And thus begins the exodus of talented medical folk from Tennessee. Thank you, Gov. Halfwit.
They should also point out that turning down the expansion is just bad for business in Tennessee. It's a rejection of billions of federal tax dollars (Tennesseans will still pay taxes, we just won't see as much come back to us) that would have paid physicians, nurses, hospitals in our communities, giving us a healthier workforce and lower private insurance rates.
Tennessee is worse off economically because of this choice. Shame on Haslam.
