Thanks to Governor Haslam, Speaker of
the House Harwell, and Senate President Pro Tempore Watson, Tennessee is standing up
to the largest expansion of government in recent expansion. By refusing to
establish the health insurance exchange mandated by ObamaCare, Tennessee is
throwing a wrench into the implementation of the law.
the exchange, federal mandates don't work and the feds cannot distribute the
necessary insurance subsidies in exchange-less states. ObamaCare falls apart.
Congress will then be forced to revisit the law.
The only problem is that states can still join with the federal government in a “partnership exchange.” In these partnership exchanges, the states retain authority in name only- feds still call the shots.
is not the time for the grassroots to relent. Keep the pressure on the governor
and your top state lawmakers to make sure they don’t fall for Washington’s
bait. Send a message now! This
is our last chance to stop ObamaCare!

Stand Strong on ObamaCare!
Dear [Decision Maker],
I just wanted to thank you for your standing up to Washington and ObamaCare. By refusing to establish a health insurance exchange, you are saving Tennessee from an unconstitutional and overly expensive law.Because of your principled stance, the federal government will try to cajole you into setting up a "partnership exchange." I urge you not to give in to this bait-and-switch. The Department of Health and Human Services will try to make the partnership sound like a good deal for the states, but the federal government will always have the ultimate power over the exchanges. The states, meanwhile, get to bear the costs.Please stay strong and don't fall for the "partnership exchange." Stand with the people of Tennessee and economic freedom!
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
