Dear Governor Haslam:
This is my 114th letter to you.
I met Phil Bredesen today. Only for a couple of minutes but what he had to say was noteworthy. He was on his way inside the Baker Center at It to participate in a panel discussion with you. He came in the front door. I guess you came in the back. I didn’t see you.
As the author of the destruction of Tenn Care and the ruining of countless lives he has always held a special bad place in my heart. We asked him about Tenn Care expansion fully expecting him to come to your defense. He surprised us all.
He told us that he was strongly for Tenn Care expansion. He said if he was governor he would have pressed ahead. He felt like the chance to help so many people with the federal government picking up the tab was basically a no brainer. I agreed.
I got for a couple of minutes to speak to a governor. I wish it had been you.
