THERE ARE NO SEATS SAFE ENOUGH:

Bredesen warns cost to state could exceed $3 billion (Andy Sher, 10/14/09, Chattanooga Times)


Gov. Phil Bredesen warned Tuesday that pending federal health care legislation could cost Tennessee far more than the $735 million “best estimate” his administration previously has cited.

The $735 million would stretch over five years, but “in addition, there are huge unknowns for the states in this reform,” Gov. Bredesen said, estimating that those costs, if realized, could exceed another $3 billion from 2014 to 2019.
