The Same Ole BS
The Tennessee House Democrats are apparently up for one last round of their old political trickery:
The income tax amendment has obviously been stalled because of an unnecessary fiscal note. During their years of absolute power, Democrats used to quietly put popular Republican proposals to death by adding amendments to them which entail spending more money than is needed to carry out the provisions of the legislation. In the Tennessee House of Representative, Democrats still have the numbers and the committee apportionment to utilize this tactic. Democrats know that if this amendment passes, they'll never again be able to hang an income tax over our heads as a cheap political threat-and of course that can't be allowed to happen.
