With the legislature back in session the fight continues to stop Obamacare in Tennessee. Realistically, there are only a couple of options to Stop Obamacare in our state.
1: Blocking Medicaid expansion in Tennessee. This provision of the Obamacare mandates the Supreme Court struck down. As a state we DO have the option not to expand Medicaid. There is pending legislation to ensure we will stop Obamacare at this juncture.
2. Nullification. We can pass laws stating we will not comply with Obamacare mandates and pass measures to protect our citizens. While the heart of this idea is in the right place, the effectiveness of any nullification measures would have to play out in the courts. This will not give our citizens or businesses relief until the dispute is settled.
We will need everyone’s full support as this bill moves through the legislature to contact their legislators and let them know they support HB 937 / SB 804.
