Attorney General Bob Cooper Bob.Cooper@ag.tn.gov Bob.Cooper@ag.tn.gov> Urge him to bring a lawsuit against the federal government NOW, not later. There initial decision was to first do a thorough legal analysis of the ‘complex’ bill. Health Care is not a delegated power of the federal government under the U.S. Constitution. Beyond that, any mandate forcing citizens to purchase health care violates Art. 1, Section 1 & 2 of the TN Constitution “That the government being instituted for the common benefit, the doctrine of nonresistance against arbitrary power and oppression is absurd, slavish, and destructive of the good and happiness of mankind.”
