Who would have ever thought….. Who would have ever thought…. That :
1. You would have a governor that over 60% of your people support…..
2. That developed a program called Insure Tennessee that well over 50% of the people approved of to expand health insurance to 280,000 Tennesseans without insurance.
3. That was supported by virtually every single civic organization, every single business organization, virtually every single newspaper, many churches, and many civic and political leaders
4. Would announce that he would not actively attempt to get that program passed this year because although he still thought it was the right thing to do he thought it might be difficult to win
Who would have thought a governor supposed to “lead” the state would refuse to provide leadership for one of his most popular ideas because he thought it might be difficult to win?
