He's With Stupid
Governor Phil Bredesen called this past legislative session's original Republican budget proposal "stupid," yet he is apparently in a dumb-down cycle
During the last legislative session, the Governor delayed presenting a budget until federal stimulus money arrived. When that money did appear on the scene, it wasn't nearly as much as what some had projected, leading to cuts no one had foreseen, and "technical corrections." Instead of waiting until mid-June to pass the budget and adjourn, the General Assembly could have been out as early as the second week of May. This year, there will be little reason to delay the inevitable. And what will Phil Bredesen's final legacy be?
