If you and I did our jobs this way….
….we would get fired. Video of lawmakers in Tennessee engaging in ‘ghost voting’…. voting for missing pols. The problem in their lousy attempt to justify such activities as ‘doing a favor’ is the magnitude of their ‘favor’…. or the complete lack of realization of its importance.
These people aren’t picking up a carton of milk for a neighbor. They’re voting on legislation that impacts lives… and they were sworn into office to do such.
If you can’t make it in to vote and uphold your duty, let the voters choose somebody who wants to. Our politicians think it is our privilege to have them represent us. They have their calculus exactly backwards. Good grief.
