The back door to Obamacare is highlighted inRED in SB 709 shown below. The part to look at in SB 709 comes after UNLESS.
Arkansas SB 709 is a bad piece of legislation. SB709 will not stop Obamacare coming into Arkansas, but provides a back door access to providing Obamacare. State Sovereignty and the 10th Amendment MUST be enforced by our elected officials. We must remember that the states are the Employer and the Federal Government is the Employee. State Nullification of Obamacare is the only method that can be used. The nullification process has been included below.
The statement below comes from Christie Herrera of ALEC.
“Senate Bill 709 not only strengthens the legislature’s policymaking authority when it comes to health reform decisions, but it also promotes transparency on the costs of the federal healthcare law on individuals and the state of Arkansas.”
Any politician involved with ALEC (American Legislative Exchange Council) has in all likelihood sold out to big business. In exchange for helping ALEC to push their model legislation through their states, they are paid off with large campaign donations from ALEC members. All these payoffs can be verified by checking out elected officials financial filings with the Secretary of State. It was ALEC that was behind SJR1, Article V Amendment Convention bill. Thank goodness SJR1 was killed in committee.
Governor Beebe has signed an application to obtain a $7.6 million grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and a proposed “cooperative agreement” to implement the federal insurance exchange.
This bill is scheduled to be heard in the House Insurance and Commerce Committee, Room 149, State Capitol, tomorrow, Wednesday, at 10 am. Try to be there if you can. It is important that we have a crowd there to show our opposition. If it passes, shout out for a roll call vote.
HB 2138, “AN ACT TO ENSURE CONTINUED LOCAL REGULATION OF INDIVIDUAL HEALTH INSURANCE COVERAGE BY ENABLING THE INSURANCE COMMISSIONER TO CONTINUE SERVING ARKANSANS; TO IMPLEMENT FEDERAL HEALTHCARE REFORM; AND TO CREATE THE ARKANSAS HEALTH BENEFITS EXCHANGE; AND FOR OTHER PURPOSES.”
