Where Credit Is Due

Tennessee Congressional Representatives Chuck Fleischmann and Scott DesJarlais deserve some real credit:

Two of Tennessee's Republican freshmen-the above-mentioned DesJarlais, and Congressman Chuck Fleischmann of Chattanooga, voted "NO" on the debt ceiling increase on Monday (NOTE: Despite the bill caption on the House roll in regards to the Education Sciences Reform Act, this was the debt ceiling vote in the House-S. 365). Neither man would have been in much political danger if they had voted in favor, so one has to believe that they voted against raising the debt ceiling because they each believed that voting against a debt ceiling was the right thing to do. What a novel idea for modern politics...

It is truly a bizarre day, when Steve Cohen votes correctly and Jimmy Duncan doesn't.

The two you mention are the only Republicans representing TN in the House and Senate that voted against more debt. Give them all credit where it is due.
