Petition Background

I am a Tennessee Registered Nurse, I have personally seen the sadness in the eyes of people that have not been able to meet their most basic healthcare needs and have had to go without necessary Doctors' appointments, medications, tests, and surgeries needed. My own son had an emergency surgery Feb. 25th and had to be at two hospitals. He works full time but cannot afford insurance and paying his basic bills on his minimum wage job as many Tennessee people cannot. "Accepting the Federal Funds to Expand Medicaid" will help the working poor. These are the people we know and love in our families and communities. Asking Governor Haslam and Tennessee legislators to support the expansion of Medicaid in Tennessee, by accepting the Federal Funds will benefit hundreds of thousands of the Tennessee people.Healthy people benefit us all in our society.
