Governor Haslam lied to legislators in a conference call yesterday, and is on the verge of breaking TN law
In a conference call yesterday Governor Haslam lied to state legislators telling them that there is no choice but to implement an Obamacare Insurance Exchange in Tennessee -- THIS IS UNTRUE.
Apparently Governor Haslam hasn't read the Supreme Court decision on Obamacare which reads that the state governments cannot be compelled by the Feds to action as is explained here: http://www.medibid.com/blog/2012/11/states-resist-obamacare-refuse-exchanges/
Governor Haslam needs to get with the program, learn the facts, and stop spewing untruths. If he approves the Obamacare Insurance Exchange then he will be breaking Tennessee State Law. A few years ago the TN legislature passed the TN Health Freedom Act which says -- "It is declared that the public policy of this state, consistent with our constitutionally recognized and inalienable right of liberty, is that every person within this state is and shall be free to choose or to decline to choose any mode of securing health care services without penalty or threat of penalty.... No public official, employee, or agent of this state or any of its political subdivisions shall act to impose, collect, enforce, or effectuate any penalty in this state that violates the public policy set forth in this section. " -- The full text of the bill is available here - http://www.capitol.tn.gov/Bills/107/Bill/SB0079.pdf

If you live in Tennessee and you haven't called Haslam to tell him NO OBAMACARE EXCHANGE, you must do so before he makes his final decision on Friday!!! If you live in another State call your politicians.
Governor Bill Haslam
