Tennessee Governor Phil Bredesen says he has one regret from his time in office
I find it interesting that Bredesen believes that his failure to "fix" TennCare was his biggest disappointment while in office. Governor Bredesen very likely came to the conclusion that you can't fix what cannot be repaired. The "advocacy groups" he was dealing with were well-intentioned, but they were representing patients on a short-term (i.e. "right here and now") basis, rather than truly examining the long-term viability of the program to insure that it could survive.
