Yesterday, the Tennessee Legislature sent the ‘Health Freedom Act‘ to the desk of Gov. Bill Haslam. Sponsors of the act said it will gives residents a choice to keep the insurance they have without facing the penalties of ObamaCare that go into effect in 2014.
Two liberty-minded organizations, the Tennessee Center for Policy Research (TCPR) and the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), played integral roles in the crafting of the bill.
TCPR president Justin Owen remarked, “This new law will provide Tennesseans with additional recourse against what two federal judges have already ruled to be an unconstitutional mandate.”
While Tennessee lawmakers are working to guarantee freedom of health care choice to for its citizens, Kentuckians remain unprotected from the impending threat of the ObamaCare’s mandates.
