Well here we go folks….after President Obama wined and dined our governor and braged on him, the governor is ready to open State Exchanges for Obamacare in Tn., despite the fact that it will violate Tn State law written in 2011, The Tennessee Health Freedom Act.
If you haven’t called him to tell him NO OBAMACARE EXCHANGE, you must do so before he makes his final decision !!!

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Governor Bill Haslam’s administration has served written notice that it opposes a freshman Republican lawmaker’s bill to block Medicaid expansion under President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul.
Leslie Hafner, the governor’s legislative director, wrote in a Monday letter to Rep. Jeremy Durham of Franklin that the administration opposes the bill on philosophical grounds.
Haslam spokesman David Smith said the governor has sent a similar letter to Democratic sponsors of a bill encouraging the state to participate in an expansion of Medicaid.
The governor has said he plans to make a recommendation to Legislature about whether to pursue an expansion by the end of the month.
The U.S. Supreme Court has left a decision on Medicaid expansion up to the states, though the federal government will pick up most of the cost.
