Insure Tennessee

Coalition-for-a-Healthy-TN_CMYK_Smaller.png
WCDP has met with The Coalition for a Healthy Tennessee, coalition of over 100 organizations.  The Tennessee General Assembly will be meeting the first week of February to debate Governor Haslam’s Insure Tennessee Plan.  If you have not heard about this plan, it is a plan to leverage federal tax dollars along with funds from the Tennessee Hospital Association to create a health insurance program for the working poor in Tennessee.  If implemented, over 200,000 Tennesseans (including 20,000 veterans) would have access to healthcare through health insurance without raising any taxes.  
If you agree that this is a good idea, please contact our Williamson County legislators, Senator Johnson, Representative Casada, Represenative Durham and Representative Sargent to let them know you support Governor Haslam and the Insure Tennessee Plan.  Your legislators need to be contacted within the next two weeks.  An email or phone call will be very helpful.  Below is a link to your legislators’ contacts:
As an extra favor, could you please send an email to your friends, family and neighbors across the State who you think would be willing to support this effort?  Your friends can find their legislators at this same address. http://www.capitol.tn.gov/legislators/.
Every contact with your legislator helps regardless of party affiliation; if you voted for or against them; or even if you like them.  You are their constituents and they need to hear from you.  I assure you that they will make note of your contact and your position on this issue.
For more information, you can go to The Coalition for a Healthy Tennessee at this website. http://insuretnnow.com
We need to support this legislation that will cover a few hundred thousand Tennesseans'.
