Congressman Scott DesJarlais hosted an open house at the Cleveland District Office Thursday afternoon.
DesJarlais says he believes the office on Keith Street in Cleveland will help serve the constituents of the area. He spoke more about Governor Haslam's decision of not adopting ObamaCare Medicaid expansion. DesJarlais said, "There is no such thing as free federal money. As I think it has been put out there to some extent, that the federal government will pay for this, but what it does is leaves the state holding the bag. And with the uncertainty in our own federal government, and the spiraling debt of 17 trillion and counting, I think it could be a situation that turns out very badly for people in Tennessee, and we need to find sustainable healthcare reform."
