Disgustingly Dependent

Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam has had an exercise which shows how disgustingly dependent we are on the federal government:

What the Governor's little exercise has shown us is that our State government has become entirely too dependent on Washington for its day-to-day operation, and it is time for us to begin to wean ourselves from the federal teet. Education is actually a constitutional responsibility of State government, but that isn't so with the federal government, so we should begin localizing education and give parents and communities maximum power over their kids. The State needs to look at departments where cuts in staff can be made without disrupting necessary State services. Does it really take that many bureaucrats to screw in a lightbulb?
