Stop Governor Haslam's Expansion of Obamacare in Tennessee through Medicaid

Petition Background (Preamble):

In accordance with Public Chapter 662 of the State Tennessee, Governor Haslam has called the 109th Tennessee General Assembly into special session for the purpose of passing a resolution authorizing him as governor to enact a wavier for Medicaid, known as Insure Tennessee.

Insure Tennessee as determined by the Tennessee Attorney General is Medicaid Expansion.

The funding mechanism for Medicaid Expansion is the Affordable Care Act commonly referred to as Obamacare. Obamacare is both immoral and unconstitutional and any effort to legitimize it should be defeated without reservation or cause.

By expanding Medicaid the state of Tennessee further legitimizes an unconstitutional act and increases the federal debt by over $22.5 billion over the next ten years.


For these reasons we the undersigned request in the strongest terms possible that the members of the 109th Tennessee General Assembly vote NO on Governor Haslam's request for authorization to expand Medicaid.
