In Tennessee, Governor Bredesen recently announced plans to dismantle TennCare, our Medicaid supplement that covered uninsured and uninsurable. His plan will kick more than a quarter of a million of our state off of the health care rolls.
The reason for this post? Advocate Gordon Bonnyman, the lawyer that Bredesen blames for this event, has an interesting piece in the new Nashville Scene. A representative for the Governor has a piece as well.
It's quite a nasty, personal fight.
