The Legislature is Broken..Crockett Buzz 5-18-15

 Quote of the day:

"There is across-the-board support for Insure Tennessee," he said, "and even more support for letting the full legislature vote on the bill. Yet there does not seem to be much interest among our legislators to discuss and vote on this bill supported by Gov. Bill Haslam — who himself remains wildly popular."

In other words, Tennesseans are knocking on the door — wanting fairness and reason and good health care to come out — but our elected reps won't let us in.

The legislature is broken. Its leaders aren't leading, and too many of its members are paralyzed by an unreasoning fear of their next elections. Never mind that such elections are more than a year away.

The rest of the Buzz is here:
