Excerpt From U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander's Latest Email

January 6, 2017 - 

I’D LIKE TO SHARE WITH YOU some of what I’ve been working on in Tennessee and Washington recently:

January will be a busy month in Washington. The committee that I chair will be holding confirmation hearings for President-elect Trump’s cabinet nominees for Secretary of Education and Secretary of Labor. We are moving immediately to provide relief from the Obamacare emergency that has the Tennessee exchange “near collapse” and is forcing Tennesseans to pay 44 to 62 percent more in health insurance premiums. I believe Congress and the Administration should work to repeal and replace at the same time, and to avoid the historic mistakes of Obamacare, replacement should be implemented step-by-step to minimize disruptions and make sure the changes in the system work well. 


A good, brief report on the things that matter to Tennesseans. We are especially concerned about out-of-control health care premiums and the 'near collapse' of the state exchange.  We all need and want relief from this terrible law as soon as possible.
