—Gov. Bill Haslam, commenting in an interview on Memphis TV station WKNO’s Behind the Headlines on the potential of federal expansion of Medicaid in Tennessee. However, he went on to say, “The expansion didn’t provide a way to have better health outcomes. It just increased the number of people we covered. I honestly think we can do it better.”
