This petition was delivered to:

Gov. Haslam, Lt. Gov. Ramsey, Spk. Harwell, and the General Assembly

Gov. Haslam, Lt. Gov. Ramsey, Spk. Harwell, and the TN General Assembly: Vote in favor of providing basic health care for ALL Tennesseans

    1. Petition by

      Clergy for Justice

We must make it clear to the Governor, Lt. Governor, and Legislature that if the “Tennessee Health Plan” is not accepted as an alternative to Medicaid expansion, rejecting the federal funding to provide health insurance to citizens who earn less than 138% of the federal poverty level (FPL) is not acceptable.

Will you sign on to this letter to the Tennessee General Assembly? It will be sent to the Governor, Lt. Governor, Speaker, and the entire Tennessee House and Senate on April 8, so we must have your endorsement by then.

Note: when signing this letter, please put your religious organization name after your last name. Thank you!

      ALL people need access to health care and not have to jump through loops to get it. This makes me SICK!

      This action makes me proud to be a United Methodist!

      I was once with out insurance, and I know how hard it was to live without. I believe that if we don't do something now to protect families and those who are less fortunate, we will have to deal with the consequeses of our goverment being not being good stewards.

      I see no reason to not accept the federal funding. I have a daughter that is dependent on help from Tenn Care and Medicare. She is only 30 years old and I am not able financially to pay her medical expenses that she has to have. Please reconsider.

      My nephew's wife was a child social worker attached to Vanderbilt Hospital. This is beyond cruel.
