Berke and Johnson: Gov. Bill Lee’s TennCare block grant plan is no cure
Co-authors: Andy Berke and Michele Johnson
In 2007, while running for office for the first time, I heard from a Marion County man named Terry who told me that his family was having trouble getting quality, affordable health care. He said that was the most important issue to him, and asked me to fight for him.
Today, Tennesseans’ health care is under attack, and we need to fight back.
We have seen the problems of health care access for Tennesseans, and Gov. Bill Lee’s proposal for a block grant makes it worse, not better.
