I was at an event for Gary Loe with Governor Bill Haslam a few days ago. The governor and I got a chance to chat for a few minutes on Obamacare.
I mentioned how I am still getting e mails on if Tennessee was going to move forward with implementation of Obamacare. While I said I didn't think there was any chance of getting the votes to pass it, I asked if the governor had sent out any position statements on the issue.
He said he had not, and the reason was because the Obama administration has shut down any responses to any and all questions on Obamacare or its possible implementation or regulations and he wanted to hold off until he got something in response. He sounded frustrated and that he wasn't expecting anything until after the election. He said the Obama administration has for months refused to answer not only questions from him about Tennessee but they had also refused to respond to any questions at all put forward by anyone from the governors conference.
It seems the administration doesn't want to tell anyone what burdens they plan to implement on the states with Obamacare if Obama is re elected as it may hurt their odds of re election.
The governor said the elections could be the ultimate cure for the problem and was holding his breath until then.
