An Open Letter to the Members of the Tennessee General Assembly – use as a template to write legislators in your own state!
It’s time for our efforts to nullify Obamacare in Tennessee to pick up steam. Our next step is to start a campaign to contact legislators to let them know that we expect them to act quickly to stop Obamacare’s implementation in Tennessee. It is imperative that the legislators at a minimum refuse to cooperate and implement Obamcare via Exchanges or any other means. If the states implement the exchanges state funds come into play, but if states refuse to implement the exchanges then they will be entirely federally funded. Since the federal government doesn’t have the money to implement the exchanges in every state, without state cooperation Obamacare falls apart.
The best course of action is for the state legislature to pass a legally binding nullification of the illegal and unconstitutional Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. A sample template letter is below that you can use to send to your state legislators. Just copy and paste the text below, or write your own letter if you prefer. If you are not certain who your state legislator is, click here to use the Find Your Legislator tool on the Tennessee General Assembly’s web site.

Template Letter to Tennessee Legislators
To all those who are elected to serve the people of Tennessee, under an oath to stand for the Constitution:
When the Constitution was young in 1798, the Alien and Sedition Acts were passed, which featured a provision that made speaking ill of the government a crime. Kentucky, led by Thomas Jefferson, and Virginia, led by James Madison, helped pass nullification resolutions in opposition of the unconstitutional legislation. Fast forward five decades and multiple northern states took a stand to nullify the pro-slavery fugitive slave laws, federal legislation that demanded runaway slaves be returned to their owners.Details
