Statement: Obamacare exchanges

I continue to oppose Obamacare as I have from the very beginning. The federal government has put the state of Tennessee between a rock and a hard place on the issue of health care exchanges. The Obama administration has refused to answer questions and provide information necessary to make decisions by its arbitrary deadline.

One thing remains clear: no state exchange can be implemented without the consent of the legislature. Period. This issue is not going away. The Republican majority will continue to do what we must to keep all options open to minimize the impact of this insidious federal law on the citizens of Tennessee.
