Public not in loop about Insure TN

This is interesting. There was a poll sent out Friday about Insure Tennessee. This is from the Tennessean via WBIR 10News:

Although the vast majority of Tennesseans don't know much about Gov. Bill Haslam's Insure Tennessee plan, support for the measure outpaces opposition, according to poll results released Saturday by Middle Tennessee State University.

The legislature will begin a special session on Monday to consider Haslam's plan to extend health care coverage to about 200,000 people who make too much to qualify for Medicaid but not enough to buy coverage on their own. The expansion is possible through federal funds designated by the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.

According to the MTSU poll, two-thirds of Tennesseans have heard a little or nothing about Insure Tennessee. On the other hand, 10 percent have heard a lot and 23 percent have heard some about the plan.
