TN Forum: ‘Predictable’ that TN is First State Sued Over Obamacare

Press release from The Tennessee Forum; July 23, 2014:

NASHVILLE — The Tennessee Forum today reacted to the news that Tennessee is now the first state in the union to be sued over Obamacare calling it “predictable.”

“When 28 states around the country were banding together to resist the federal intrusion of Obamacare, Attorney General Bob Cooper was missing in action,” said Susan Kaestner. “Today, it looks like the Obamacare fight has come to him. This was the predictable result of a liberal Supreme Court choosing a liberal attorney general.”

Just last week, Chief Judge Gary Wade defended the attorney general’s refusal to fight Obamacare asserting that it was “the right decision for the taxpayer.” Connie Clark agreed saying it was the right decision because Obamacare is “a federal issue.”

“Obamacare certainly doesn’t look like a ‘federal issue’ today. And the taxpayer will continue to get a raw deal across the board,” Kaestner continued. “The Supreme Court’s decision to pick a partisan Democrat as attorney general looks worse and worse everyday. These judges are responsible and the voters need to hold them accountable by voting to replace Connie Clark, Sharon Lee and Gary Wade.”
