Health Care War is Back
The Tennessee Senate stands ready to take on the federal government over health care yet again
In a redux of the last session of the General Assembly, the Tennessee Senate Wednesday again passed the Tennessee Health Freedom Act. The bill would, if passed, allow Tennesseans to "opt out" of the federal health care law if they choose to do so. A party line vote in the Senate saw all 21 Republicans voting in favor of the bill. The bill now awaits its hearing before a more friendly House Commerce Committee than last time after passing out of the General Subcommittee of Commerce.
