WASHINGTON D.C. – Today, Rep. Roe, M.D. (R-TN) released the following statement regarding Governor Haslam's decision not expand Medicaid in the state of Tennessee:

“I applaud the Governor’s decision. Expanding a broken system would do more harm than good. The Affordable Care Act left states with a great set of challenges and I don’t envy the difficult decision the governor had to make. I have a great deal of respect for Governor Haslam, and I look forward to continuing to work with him to find commonsense solutions to ensure Tennesseans have access to affordable health care.”
