Tennessee lawmakers who are doing their best to stop President Barack Obama’s health care law have introduced a bill that could have the unintended consequence of forcing hospitals to verify and ban patients if they purchased insurance through the Healthcare.gov website.

At a press conference on Wednesday, state Sen. Mae Beavers (R) and state Rep. Mark Pody (R) announced legislation that would prevent any state agency from cooperating in any way with the Affordable Care Act.

Beavers said that it was not immediately clear how the law would affect the more than 36,000 Tennesseans who had already purchased insurance through the federal health care exchanges. And would also cause problems for Tennessee’s Medicaid program, TennCare, which uses the HealthCare.gov website.

The bill would make it illegal for state and local officials to “assist in implementing” anything to do with the federal law. Employees and contractors in local, state and education institutions would be forbid from using the health care exchanges.

So there ARE death panels associated with the ACA after all, only they're being put in place by the Tea Party Republicans to punish anyone who had the audacity to purchase their coverage through the federal website. The Tennessee GOP says no healthcare for you!
