And there in lies the problem with Tennessee. We have less revenue than other states, but we spend like there is no tomorrow. We should applaud our low taxes and respond with lower spending. But the government doesn't work like a normal household. When the budget gets tight at John Q. Public's house, they cut back on spending. When the budget gets tight in the government, they look for new streams of revenue (income tax, etc.). Oh well, I guess we should be happy it's low for now. I just don't know how long we will stay at the bottom.

We are also next to last in education scores, and child welfare rights.
The main reason the state is under several court orders because they can not provide the level of care required by the federal government for our children. Are you still proud????

Oh, you can get a phenomenal education in the state of Tennessee. You just have to step over into the private realm. MBA is arguably a top 5 college prep school in the nation.
