A second 13th letter: 32,000 people

Dear Governor Haslam:

This is my second 13th letter.

32,000 people.  That is the number of seriously mentally ill people that without Tenn Care expansion will not have any access to services.

If they do not have help with their lives the consequences of their living will impact all of us.  They already do.  They fill our jails, our streets, our communities.

A total of 80,000 people with some degree of mental health issues will remain uninsured barring expansion.  It is the right thing to do financially, socially, and morally.  It is the right thing for Tennessee.

Please speak out.  Expand Tenn Care.

Until tomorrow,

Larry Drain
