Bill Would Create Loophole In Obama Overhaul

Ralph’s Note: The elected politicians in Tennessee have carried out the will of the people, by stopping the unconstitutional, and illegal obamacare legislation. We didn’t want the act, and now it has been stopped. Now we need to work on replacing it with something which has the ability to make medical care a sustainable commodity.
