ObamaCare exchanges to be made illegal in Tennessee?
« on: January 17, 2014, 01:21:35 AM »
My home state of Tennessee may be poised to make ObamaCare's healthcare exchanges illegal.

From the Associated Press:

Health insurance exchanges established under President Obama's signature law would be illegal under legislation proposed Wednesday by Republicans aiming to prevent state agencies from carrying out the mandates of the health overhaul.

Sen. Mae Beavers of Mt. Juliet and Rep. Mark Pody of Lebanon held a news conference to announce the measure that seeks to prohibit any cooperation by the state or its agencies in implementing or administering the federal law.

"The federal government does not have constitutional authority to commandeer state and local governments to enforce or implement these federal health care mandates," Beavers said. "This legislation takes a very strong stand to resist this federal overreach of power."

The legislation would ban new health insurance exchanges established under the law.
