Martin, Tenn (Sept.6,2016) — Angela Callis, candidate for State Representative in House District 76, spoke about one of her top priorities as a candidate.
She spoke to supporters recently – telling them that a quality and affordable health care is a right for everyone – not a privilege for the wealthy few.
“The people of my community deserve quality and affordable health care through Insure Tennessee. It is dangerous and totally irresponsible that the my opponent, Andy Holt has stood as a roadblock to some 24,000 veterans in need of care”, she said.
Insure Tennessee would provide care for more than 280,000 Tennesseans – including 24,000 veterans in Tennessee. Callis said that when you look at the numbers, it just makes sense.
Callis continued, “The bottom line is, I stand with the veterans in this community and I want all 24,000 in Tennessee who need care to receive it.”
Insure Tennessee has been blocked by Republicans in the state for over a year now. It has been a topic of much interest in the state and polls show that most Tennesseans support the plan created by Republican Governor Bill Haslam.
