Not sure about the list but will comment regarding Tennessee: Noodle-spined (Republican) Gov. Bill Haslam says he’s “undecided”, meaning he’s trying to figure out the best rationale for supporting the increase. Fortunately, the Republicans have solid control of both houses and there are enough conseratives in the legislature to make sure there will be no automatice rubber stamp of Haslam’s decision (if his decision is to expand). I’m not sure the legislature would oppose the governor on this, but I think there would be enough opposed to make it a rough ride for him.
If Haslam decides to expand and the legislature backs him, it will be like the early years of the Geo. W. Bush administration where Republicans had the presidency and both houses of Congress and went on wild spending sprees.
Moral of the story: never vote for a Dhimm, and only vote for a Republican if you are prepared to watch him like a hawk.
So do you think Tennessee should be on the list?
If the absence of action is a fair criteria, seems like they should be, or maybe not. As you say, maybe their governor is just stalling around...
