Phil Bredesen: "you get to take taxes away"

You have got to admire Phil for his raw honesty. He really enjoys his job. He gets to take money away from you and me and then give it away as  a "grant from the Governor."

Maybe he could really make this fun. He could invite all the grantees and for their (and his) entertainment he could stage stage a mock robbery of TN Taxpayers...sort of like the Roman gladiator events.


"One of the great things about being governor is you get to take taxes away and later give it back and people are happy," Bredesen said.  "Is this a great job or what?"
