I particularly like your succinct "confusion — continually fed by the tea party wing of the GOP that thinks of government only as a tax and not as a service".
Thank you! Well said! 925,000 in TN are uninsured, median age 33, median income 166% Fed.Pov.level. Most work and lack college credit. Most don't know about ACA and subsidies to help. About 174,000 in East TN will be eligible for Marketplace insurance, many with subsidies. Also the full ACA lowers the projected federal deficit projected for 20 years meaning a slower rise in national debt than without the ACA. We would gain more with TennCare expansion, but even without it things are better with the ACA.
