The dominant conversation about expanding TennCare defines opposition to expansion as being supportive of freedom and being for financially responsible choices. It is neither, but a conversation with such a dominant narrative is unlikely to be one we are effective in.
We must make an attempt to reclaim the conversation. In a small way that is what this website is trying to do.
I am starting to hear from other people who are joining the “Dear Governor Haslam” campaign. They too will be writing and asking others to join them. One major statewide organization has offered their support (Tennessee Health Care Campaign). Another major state organization has also offered their support and I hope to announce them by the end of the week.
Will you help? Help us to reclaim the conversation. Help make TennCare expansion possible and ultimately reality for so many.
