"I want to start our conversation on the centennial of women's suffrage. With the clip of someone whose story you tell in your book, the woman's hour, Harry T Burn. Let's listen to him from a national public TV documentary in 2019, and then we'll come back and talk about him. My mother was the college woman. She was a student of national and international affairs. She took an interest in all public issues, she could not vote. And yet the tenant farmers on our farm, some of whom were illiterate, but vote who was Harry Burn. And why does he play a central role in your story? Uh, Harry Thomas Byrne was the youngest legislator in the Tennessee General Assembly in 1920. He was a freshman delegate on And he represented the small hill town of Niota in East Tennessee, which was the Republican part of Tennessee. And he although he voted with the anti suffragists and many anti ratification ists from the 19th amendment was a parade implication in the Tennessee General Assembly that summer. He changed his mind because of a letter he received from his mother, who he describes in that clip, and that change of mind, uh, tilted the vote by one vote. And that's how the 19th amendment was finally ratified. How did the vote for ratification of the Constitution and then it come down to Tennessee? Ah, convoluted path. The Constitution says that new amendments have to be passed by Congress by a two thirds vote in each chamber. And then it has to be ratified by three quarters of the states in the union. So at that time, there were 48 states, which meant 36 had to ratify and in the summer of 1920 35 had ratified So you had just one more state was needed for full ratification would enter the constitution. And American women in every state would be able to vote in the 1920 elections. And that was a presidential year really pivotal election and it turned out that Tennessee was the last possible. Choice or a place for a state to ratify most of the other states in the south had actually rejected already rejected the 19th amendment. And there were a few outstanding states, but two of them were in New England, Connecticut and Vermont. The governor's there refused to call their legislative troops back into special session, which is what it would have required because the Legislature was not in session at that time. And they refused. They were under corporate pressure from their corporate interests who played a big role in their political lives. So they refused. There were 27 states still not heard from North Carolina, which everyone knew was going to not ratify and Florida. Same thing. And so Tennessee was the only one left. It was still a dangerous place to stage this probably final battle for women's suffrage at the constitutional level, and this suffer just were not happy about having to stage this to fight for for the last eight in a southern state, because that makes it much more complicated for reasons I'm sure we'll discuss And S O. It was a very difficult realization that Tennessee was the one, but they had to deal with it. And, of course for the anti separatist The anti ratification is It also was something of a last stand. So the governor of Tennessee wanted to duck. He didn't want it here. They're the Tennessee Legislature did not want to be the deciding factor. And so you had a lot of Um, powers trying to, uh, make Tennessee not have to be in this pivotal position, but it turned out it was so if Tennessee had failed to ratify what would have happened to women's suffrage. Well, that's an interesting speculation because, as I said there were two northern states still in play, but the governor's had totally refused completely refused. To call their legislatures back, and they probably would not have done that before the 1920 election. What the suffragists sense and I think they were very correct in this Is that the nation Woz swinging towards a much more conservative frame of mind. The progressive era was over. We just emerged from a very unpopular war. The Great War World War one. And the nation Woz swinging away from that idea of America being the beacon of the free world, it was going into a more isolationist position. There were a lot of domestic problems that were having to be decided. So this was a pivotal, pivotal election and the suffragist felt if they could not get Tennessee to ratify the mo mentum would be lost. In fact, the momentum in the spring had been against them have been several rejections, including moderate Delaware, Delaware rejected 19th amendment. And so they were really nervous that if they couldn't resolve this, this ratification in Tennessee in the summer of 1920, they were not perhaps going to see it ratified in their lifetimes or for the foreseeable future, because what they feared is that once the election was passed, that sense of pressure from the political establishment would be over. And the nation was having second thoughts. They were actually several states that wanted to rescind their prior ratification of the 19th amendment and also is being challenged in court. So they just felt And I think they were very correct that if they couldn't get it done now, it was not going to happen. And those of us who have lived through the vicissitudes of the Equal Rights amendment, which was the successive meant as the successor amendment to the 19th, and it was introduced into Congress in 1923. No, that amendment to come very close to the finish line as the ER rate has and yet not make it into the Constitution, So I think their fears were well founded by 1920. How many states allowed women to vote? I believe about 12 or 15 states allowed for what was called full suffered, so you have to understand it gets kind of complicated. You know our federalist system. The Constitution provides that the speeds are in charge of voting requirements for their citizens and also for administration of elections. We know that because that's why there's such a hodgepodge of election law today because the states are in charge, and they could make those decisions. Just you can get the right to vote by two past one is your state gives it to you by a change in the Constitution, a change in in in the fundamental laws of voting in that state, and the other is through a constitutional amendment, which would supersede all the state requirements and give the vote in one fell swoop, too. To all women in every state. And so the suffragettes had pursued a double trap. Shall we say from the beginning they worked in the states in referenda in which men, of course, were the only people who could vote whether women deserve the boat. So you had scores of referenda in many, many states, and they would try again and try again. Several times, and sometimes it took five or six times. Sometimes it failed and was never revived. And so by that time about 15 states, most of them in the West, but pivotal E. Illinois had given women the vote 1917. I believe in New York, also in 1917, I may be wrong over you'll avoid, but so they were just a few outposts of Midwestern. And Western apart, and Eastern states. The Northeast Corridor was very, very reluctant about women's suffrage. And so they had managed through enormous ever to get these 15 states to allow women to vote get. It starts in the Western states, which are never populated. Wyoming, Idaho, Colorado. Thing goes up through California, Oregon, Washington and S. So you have one. New York allows suffrage in 1917. That's a big milestone. That's when things begin to move again because it's the most popular state and then the politicians can ignore women's suffrage anymore. So you have Thies 15 states where women can vote. And then you have several other states post World War one. So just in the last year or two previous who gave women the right to vote in presidential elections, not and they couldn't vote for their governor there, Senator there, Congressman, but they could vote for president. So now you have private few women who can vote in the presidential election, even if they don't have full suffrage, so the politicians have to pay a little more attention to To the will of the women electorate, and so you see a different calculation in their minds in 1920. Could you describe just a bit about the standing of women, the legal standing of women in American society at this period? Well, it's best to go back to Into the 19th century when the movement begins. And if that time the idea of women's legal rights it's almost not Samora because there was so they have so few rights. Woman could not own her own property. If she was married. Everything belonged to her husband. If her husband died, it often went to his brother and s O. His brother. Her brother in law would not be in charge of everything she owned. Ah, woman did not have to studio rights over her Children. So if she left the marriage for any reason she could not have custody of the Children. They belonged to her husband. Woman could not keep her on wages or own inheritance..

"Of the leery O'Connor show right now. Is there a very few voices in the Republican Party? I think you really get it who really understand what's at stake right now. The charms of the argument and the battle that we're facing right now in this country over the last couple of months that we've seen play out on our televisions and on the streets of our great cities in this country, one of those people, one of those people who doesn't get it. Is Senator Marsha Blackburn of the Great State of Tennessee. And she joins us now, Senator Blackman. Thanks for being here. I'm delighted to join you. Thank you so much. Well, let me let me let me go right at it here. Congresswoman Ilhan Omar of Minnesota recently this week said that a cz long as our economy and political systems prioritize profit without considering who is profiting. We will perpetuate inequity, and she went on to say that that that means we need to dismantle the whole system of oppression in that system she's talking about is our economy and really our country's structure. How could she continue to be a Congress woman if she wants to dismantle the very government that she's serving? Well, I find it very unusual that she takes this oath to uphold the Constitution, which embodies in it. The protections for innovators toe benefit from their creations. That is a constitutional right. It is a right for our creators, those that whole Patton's hold those that hold trademark those that create all of the new innovations and technologies that we enjoy every single day. So what she is saying, let's create a economy where the government controls The economy later, you and I called that state planning and that's a government can pick winners and losers in this economy. It would deny our creators and our innovators their constitutional rights. Well, yeah, and listen, That's thing's pretty logical to me, and it seems like a fundamental thing. What? We're really disturbs me here, Senator Blackbeard is I don't think you need to be a Republican or conservative to see that It's shocking to me how few if any, of your colleagues from the other side of the aisle will step forward and say, Excuse me, with all due respect, Congresswoman Omar, but that's not what we do here. Well, and I had one of my friends in the music industry reach out to me that the weak and say Okay, I know that we disagree on some things because they do come From the Democratic side of the aisle, they said. But Marcia, you're exactly right about this about cause those rights and privileges. Four innovators to benefit from their creation for people to benefit from their ideas for them to be ableto have a property right on their intellectual property. That is something that is a constitutional right to the American citizen. So for her to say, we want to dismantle it basically shred the Constitution. To change all of our systems. Then my question is, And so what are you wanting to change it? To? Whom do you want Replicate? If you do not want to have died by the U. S constitution that reserves the right to the citizen, not to the government, you know, and that such a fundamental important understanding of of what our constitution articulates these air our rights that we're born with that that that that are inherent to us. That the constant we don't have these rights because the government granted them to a senator. Black permit. It almost seems like that's the perspective of your colleagues on the other side of the aisle. Well, we have to remember anything the government give us government can take away and that is why our Constitution enshrines those on alien of all right? Given by our creator, and that is why they are given to us and this framework of government is there a rule of law is there to protect The rights that are is given. To the citizens, not by government. But you keep government hands off of. We'll see not Senator Blackburn. You're quoting Thomas Jefferson and James Madison. They're going. They're going to tear down statues of you next. You've got to be careful break my raid my Facebook and Twitter. See, you'll find out what people think. Well, I do. And by the way, speaking of your social media presence, I want to talk to you about Instagram because I see that you have co authored a Children's book with Your daughter, Mary Morgane catchall. And it looks really cute. It's called Camilla can vote in it's to. It's to celebrate women's rights and the suffrage movement of 100 years ago. Instagram has blocked your advertising because they say this message is political. Are you kidding me? Well, and this is the second time to say you've done it. And it is my daughter posting on her personal instagram account into the people that follow her blonde. And because my name is attached they have blocked to me yet again are blocked her yet again, And this is there is nothing political. This is not something that is going to determine If somebody wins the presidential election is not partisan. It all for crying out loud. It's it's a Children's book about the history of the 19th Amendment. That's right. And about the way it came about because Tennessee was the pivotal state. So you know, we've got this book, and here we go, and she puts tries about midnight last night. Was trending on Amazon and so she was going to put that up. And then they blocked at about midnight last night. And of course, she has appealed. But I have to tell you, Larry, it is just They Right and that people have fought for and women getting the right to vote. That was a 72 year battle and we're coming up on the centennial of that, And we should celebrate that. And people should know that story and realize that this 19th amendment is the Susan B. Anthony Amendment, and that she started this work in 18 48. And you've got Elizabeth Cady Stanton. And you've got Carrie Chapman Catt and you've got the suffragist who all came to Nashville. In the summer of 1920 they pushed it through the Tennessee General Assembly. And there's a wonderful story about a Tennessee legislator, Harry Burn. Who got a note from his mother. He was anti suffrage. His mother was a suffragist, and she wrote him a note and ask him to Help Miss Cat. Carrie Chapman. Catt put the rat in ratification and you flipped his boat. Oh, that is it came to be. It's a wonderful story. So my daughter has, you know is very creative in through the eyes of a trial tales, this story and yes, yet again, it is centered, But here's the thing.

going to make the final determination of who exactly was on that plane but again I apologize for those remarks earlier about Kobe's family on that helicopter yeah and and look magnum is not a new reporter what do you what what you just mentioned it like the idea that while we breaking news events people have to deal with all these things flying in our sure what's real and what's not the more you deal with situations like this the better you're supposed to be calm at sorting through the noise and finding the signal and that was a failure on his party's a senior reporter nation about so I can't do I cannot agree with you more we have this we have this complaint all the time when it comes reporters reporting things especially when it comes to political reporting that archer right and they get it out there because that way you have to do you got to be right I said all time thank you I have a huge complaint with the with the media with this you don't have to be right you just have to be first that's what's important to these outlets and and I see it all over the place but let me ask you a question do you think that this would be an issue if it wasn't Kobe Bryant that if it were it was just a charter flight AT and it went down in there were nine people on board and he said you believed to be on board where the following people you know whatever the the manifest of the flight was or or we bill you know believed to be on board you know I off all of the victims children were with him or her whatever if it wasn't Kobe Bryant was a famous person I don't think this would be a big deal what draws a lot more attention to his mistake apps absolutely it would it would not be big but but it is a big deal is that reporters actually report facts that's the whole point of their jobs I mean look what happened yesterday we had that we had this very same instant play I guess it was in a in a in it with a different format of political story what happened a lot there is there is this idea that the White House had sent a letter threatening John Bolton to not published a book that was a scene and told us yesterday and what ended up being the truth actually the truth is that the White House in its classification review process had sent a letter before the New York times ever published a story about John Bolton revelations back to John Bolton and his attorneys and said Hey there's a classification problems of your books you're you're a feeling something classified we want to get this to a place where it's not revealed and we're gonna work with you to make sure that you can get your book out to the public that's what the letter actually sent the threat but it was reported incorrectly yeah because CNN rush to do it they characterize it in the least terrible weather possibly could in order to her trump and in the end it turned out not to be true and you have left is yesterday who were reading that and when if when the letter finally came out there like wait a second that's not a threat this is routine was there an apology did they get that they tried out don lemon and just have and do another female apology because I mean he's really good at and also Donna didn't apologize eight my point exactly unlimited actually apologize he's an active but the and what we're talking about is don lemon's conversation over the weekend mocking trump supporters along side of his guests and when he finally accounted for it two nights ago now he said well I didn't hear everything they said I was just laughing at the jokes not the people even though the joke for about the people selling us but we get from our press the jokes are marking the people you mocking you know all of this has led at least one lawmaker somewhere in the country to say it's time we start calling fake news fake news and it's not just Donald Trump Tennessee representative Michael van Haas is a Tennessee General Assembly member and he he submitted a bill yesterday a resolution a joint resolution designed to recognize CNN and The Washington Post as fake news and condemning them for denigrating our citizens so usually that I'm what I'm reading the text of the resolution and he he goes right after you guys whereas on October third two thousand nineteen for The Washington Post an editor for a washer both wrote that president Donald J. trump has cast a spell on the Republican Party and suggested that trump ism is called like end whereas on November twenty fourth two thousand nineteen a CNN host suggested a trump supporters belong to a call and then our president is using mind control and then it goes on and on and on and on to basically say be it resolved by the house of representatives of the one hundred eleventh General Assembly of the state of Tennessee but the state of Tennessee recognizes CNN in a Washington post is fake news and part of the media wing of the Democratic Party you know maybe I can move to Tennessee so maybe that's a viable option they would

"And Hello, everyone for Tennessee is farm radio. I'm Lee met we are hopeful that there might be a chance to put on the fair there this year in two thousand nineteen that's certainly not clear yet after one hundred fifty plus years of Tennessee State fair in Nashville and over one hundred years in the current location the status of a state fair this year is in limbo. According to John rose, a member of the Tennessee State, fair and exposition. Commission and you congressman for the state six district. There's a lot of concern for the future of the fair. And that's why the five member commission recently notified the governor. And members of the Tennessee general assembly to quote, begin the search for a new location and home for the Tennessee State, fair commission voted to begin the process of looking for a new state fairgrounds, and we called on the governor and the legislature to start taking steps to help us identify and provide for new state fairgrounds. Currently metro government is proceeding with plans to construct a Major League Soccer stadium on the current site of the state fair and would allow the state fair to be held on that site this year, but in a limited capacity, fair commission member Jeff and president to the Tennessee farm bureau and with the significance of agriculture in his statement, our number one industry, we think that it's vital that the administration in the legislature began looking and.

So we certainly encourage Alvar Oliver farm bureau members to make contact with their legislators and let them make them aware of their desire to continue with a prominent and successful state fair at a new site besides Aitken and Representative raise the other members of the state fair.

And sometimes we see those sad stories of people that get in trouble healthwise with these extreme temperatures, please please please do what you can take care of one. Another check on your family, friends, elderly neighbors. It is important. I just a quick reminder there. All right. Governor Bill Lee is set to outline priorities in his first state of the state address. He's going to outline those priorities tonight. He will deliver his first. Say addresses, the governor says he governors high profile speech, and it is high profile because it's a new governor. And usually people pay attention. That's more than other because you're kind of like, all right? What's he gonna do and Lee's speech, which he will deliver before joint session of the Tennessee general assembly at the state capitol? The governor's going to highlight his priorities for his first year in office and elaborate on his legislative agenda as a whole governor Lee will propose his conservative budget and vision for how Tennessee can lead the nation with specific proposals on education, health care public, safety and other critical components of our states livelihood. That is what lease spokesman said to reporters about what you can expect tonight now because of a six week gap between lease January the nineteenth inauguration as I say, the state address his administration began in recent weeks, making announcements about specific budget budget proposals and priorities now is already outlined several of these initiatives, which he works banned on more apparently more tonight. The annual addresses typically, given just so you know, in late January early February much coach to the star the legislative session, though, the new governor's administration needed time, establish its agenda. Former governor Bill has lem state of the state address in two thousand eleven just so you know, it was also held in March among the initiatives that has already unveiled our efforts to expand vocational training in Tennessee, reducing recidivism through re entry programs and education, which we talked about last week and school safety and access on the issues of mental health. Also things that we talked about last weekend. I want to start first with a priority that he's talked about it. And that is the issue of vocational training. I believe for far too long. We've allowed people to force people into if you want to be successful. You must go into higher learning higher higher learning education, aka college, we for a long time got away from trade schools and vocational training because we said, oh, everybody's going to go to college. The reality is not everybody goes to college. And also the reality is that everybody needs to go to college vocational training is something that I believe that. Should it should be a top priority? And that's what the governor saying here. You know, we've lied to ourselves over slogans if you remember the Memphis city schools for years if you called them when you call them embassy schools main hotline, it said, thank you for calling MMC schools where every day every student is college bound, well, we know that was a lie while the members schools were failing. They continue this s. Narrative that every student is college bound and not every student is college bound and not every profession. Do you need to go to college four? That's another part of this conversation that they'll Lee clearly is going to be having tonight. We don't always need to go to college. Sometimes you can go straight into your career without going to college. And sometimes you don't need to go into the debt. Now college costs college has gotten insanely expensive. And I don't care if you're part of the Tennessee scholarship lotto money are not college has become extremely expensive. Where the reasons why is because we've allowed for loans to get out of control the same way that loans gotten out of control when it comes to buying cars. You know, how is it that anyone can afford one hundred thousand dollar car in this country? There are a lot of cars now that are one hundred thousand dollars. I'll give you your example. I was looking at cars before are twins were born. And we were looking at bigger cars. We look to escalate the Escalade that I said what is this one run? And he said about ninety five thousand dollars. No ninety nine percent of the American people cannot afford a ninety five thousand dollar car, and unless you allow me to finance that car for an insane number of years, which is exactly what's happened with college loan debt. So it's a big business. It is a business. If you tell everybody to amount to something you have to go to college. You have a lot more people that go and a lot more people that take out student loans. There's a reason why in this country we now for the first time ever in history. Have a trillion dollars in student loan debt. A lot of that debt is owed by people that did not finish college. That's one of the interesting detail devil in the details that a lot of people don't talk about is how many people go to college. They take out these debts. These loans. For a year. They ended up dropping out. And then all of a sudden, they owe somebody twenty thirty forty thousand dollars, sometimes even more. That's how we have a trillion dollar in student loan debt. Now, if you talk to high school kids about the reality that some of you aren't going to go to college, which is exactly what we should be doing. And then we talked to these kids about locational training. I personally believe that your junior and senior year, we should change and adapt to what it is. You're really gonna do and the decision that you're actually going to make I believe that if you're one of those it says, and you sit down with your parents, your teachers, and you say, look, I have no interest or no intent on going to college. I believe that the last two years of high school should look significantly different than someone that is saying I am definitely going to college. Now, there are some people that don't like that idea. They say, well, Ben, it's unfair. You can't do that to a student because what if that student changes their mind, and then they're unprepared for college. And now they've pigeonhole themselves into a life of vocational training style jobs. Well, there's there's re- reality. And reality is the way that we are currently doing education is not working. And I believe that we are not preparing kids for the real world when they graduate from high school. And there are a lot of kids that will tell you their junior year. There have no intent of going to college are not going to college. So at that point. Why wouldn't we look at the issue of vocational training now governor Billy when he unveiled his first major legislative initiative aimed at career training. He's funded with the lottery. Proceeds a program expects to serve eleven thousand students in twenty five eight twenty five communities governor declined to say how much the state would invest in the program until he presents a budget to lawmakers, which is part of what the state of the. Eight address is but under his first legislative initiative. Governor Bill said, look, I plan to create a statewide vocational and technological training program. To increase opportunity for tendency students, if approved by lawmakers, the governor's investment vocational education initiatives would fulfill one of these top education platforms that he ran on during the governor's run, which I actually thought was a brilliant idea and long overdue. Now, he said, quote, I believe that expanding our vocational, and technological offerings will be transformational for Tennessee and a few traverse state. We have the opportunity to help students. Discover quality career paths and gain skills are needed right now in the workplace by emphasizing career and technical education. And he is right. This give initiative would use lottery funds, which I think we should all be in favor of to create regional partnerships with development to develop on the job learning and apprenticeship opportunities house majority leader William Lambert, a Republican from Cottonwood Tennessee, and the Senate majority leader Jack Johnson Republican from Franklin our sponsors of the Bill now how much does programs in a cost were probably gonna find that out tonight. We know the numbers, but the process is what we have to present that the budget and this budget to the legislature. So that will come out Lee told reporters at event at east since he state university in Nashville when Presley declined to give an estimate on the amount. And that's because he's going to be giving us more of that information tonight. So. Is this the right move to be more honest. I this is to me just an issue of intellectual honesty. You can either be unrealistic and lie to people that every student every day is college bound like the MMC schools day when that a fifty percent dropout rate, or whatever the hell it was. Because it was one hell of a dropout rate, and they just kept lying on the voice mail where every student every day was college bound, which is insane. It's absolutely insane. You have that option or you have this realistic option? You have a realistic idea. And the realistic ideas. You say look, I know you're.

"Foundation that we get to build upon where the envy of many state, and it's in large part due to your remarkable leadership. So he was a few governor Bill Lee was a few sive in his praise of his predecessor governor Bill Haslam any marked down the list of compliments now the problem with that. And perhaps look at good manners. I get it. I get it. But for me, he goes down the list of these quote accomplishments. Bill Haslam was not a conservative guy at all. I mean, the increased the gas tax governor Li praised him for his quote progress in education. I look at education, and I see the Bockel I see this increased concentration on testing the failed testing services. I look at economic development, and I see corporate welfare that just helps fortune five hundred companies like Volkswagen, and and Amazon given out big bucks, taxpayer bucks to corporate entities, and and paying no attention to the small businesses that really drive economic growth, and I being too hard on governor Li here now, and and the Medicaid expansion has almost pushing ravaged our budget. It has ravaged our budget for decades and decades, and it's it's been a terrible terrible program, and and hassle wanted to expand it, and it's you know, you've got to make the case and Lee to his credit is said I'm against that. But again, you you've got to separate yourself. On a policy level some bad policies. And I think you're right. I think he was just it was just a generic feel-good kind of speech. And we'll see what happens when he starts following up with the state of the state and the legislative proposals. And when the rubber meets the road. We know what actually does he propose does he propose to limit government to limit regulation to give students. More more opportunities. More choice. Those are the kinds of things we've got to watch. But you're right. I, you know, hopefully, this phrase of of Bill has one was was just that just to a nicety. And he's yeah. I except of quite a few of his twenty six twenty seven cabinet appointments are holdovers. From the has limited ministration. So it's a pretty much a satisfied cabinet. And that's not a good sign for somebody who really wants to get into government and reforming and reduces and an increase individual freedom. And that's that's that's what limited government unlim-. -limited government is all about is increasing the role of the individual. And when you've got a bunch of folks in the cabinet who seek government is the solution. Then that's not good. And and I hope that he will we'll have to see. But it's that's that is a discouraging signed the other thing too. Is you know from our grassroots conservative allies. And then you have been really twenty years. I think now working as a conservative grassroots low limited government guy you and and Steve gale and Phil Valentine, and Marsha Blackburn and Diane black and may be vers- working, those latter ones working in the state legislature are responsible largely for putting together the tax revolt that ended up stopping the introduction of income tax here in Tennessee. Frankly, let's be honest. If you look at what's driving the engine of economic growth in Tennessee. It is. In fact, the that the fact that we have no state income tax. That's been probably the single greatest driver of economic growth in the state, and I tip my hat to you. Ben Cunningham for being one of the leaders in in stopping the income tax here. I think you probably a lot more to do with economic growth in Tennessee by that activism, then all of the dollars that has them and Bredesen's have spent on corporate welfare over the past two decades. Thanks, I appreciate that was why was one of one of about five thousand people that came down there and raise their voices. And it was it was extraordinarily experienced. But you're right. I mean, it's the the tax structure has much more to do with economic development in any kind of incentives incentives are just a such a tiny part of the overall decision making. And we need to. Introducing accountability into the into this for welfare. I know it's not going away anytime soon. But we've got to we've got to make people accountable for the money that's given to them. Hopefully, someday, it will go away, and we will say, hey to politicians you've gotta stop competing to see how much of our money, you can give away because that's what basically these corporate incentives are about their competing with corporate politicians and other states to say, hey, I can give away more taxpayer money than you can give away a ludicrous and ridiculous. Tradition. We've allowed our politicians to get into the we've gotta stop them. The corporations are not going to stop them. They're the ones that are reaping the benefit. But you're absolutely right. It's basic tax structure, and no liberal politician in the state of Tennessee will ever admit it. But they know there's absolutely true. That's why Tennessee is looming. That's why Nashville is booming. And if Nashville the city of national deaden watch out they're going to have problems this'll problems down the road. We can talk about that, of course, all day long. But it's it's it is the basics. Role of government that we've got to pay attention to. That's what determines economic growth today is the third key complete day of governor Billy as governor of Tennessee. And I have to say, frankly, seems to be a little slow getting out of the gate had a couple of missteps already in my view. I'd be curious to see what you think about this, Ben. So it really no, specifics policy agenda. He's not gonna make any specific announcements of his policy agenda until the state of the state address on on March fourth, and, you know, the the Tennessee general assembly will already have been in session for two months. So I think he's ceding leadership on legislative proposals to the leadership of the the state the general assembly speaker, Glenn Kasa, and speaker of the Senate and Lieutenant governor Randy McNally, then am I being too hard on governor Lee in this regard. Well, we haven't heard. Specifics. Yeah. And if we go here them pretty quickly. I think you're you're spot on, but he has the opportunity he campaigned as a good traditional limited government conservative. He promised tennesseans that that's what he would do. And that's.

As to why he has ceded the leadership of politics here in Tennessee to the the leadership in the state house. The speaker Glenn Cossutta, and the the speaker of the state Senate Lieutenant governor Randy McNally because he will not be laying out governor Lee will not be laying out his policy agenda until the state of the state address which happens on March fourth two months into the Tennessee general assembly, most of the work of the Tennessee general assembly will already be gone by then now in that speech it sounded like at the beginning. He was talking about individual liberty people not government making the difference. Just a very conservative theme. So that's very appealing to conservatives. However, he followed that immediately with what can only be described as. If you sieve praise for the outgoing governor who's not a favorite of conservatives. The former governor. Go ahead. And his wife Chrissie for their tireless service to the state for the past eight years standing here in our state capital. We see reminders of your administration success everywhere. Growth and opportunity can be seen on every corner. From education to economic development. You've laid a foundation a remarkable foundation that we get to build upon where the envy of many states, and it's in large part due to your remarkable leadership. So let's look at that education. What has been Bill has looms big signature event. In his leadership Vate years in education. Well, it's been the other department of the educational testing utter debacle, and what does Billy do to fix that debacle? He goes ahead and hires a thirty six year-old graduate of the university of California at Berkeley, a bastion of far left liberalism who got her career start in teach for America. And while the chief academic officer for a Texas education agency, signed a no bid two million dollar plus contract with a personal friend relationship with a personal professional relationship, not personal but professional relationship and that contract the auditor of Texas. The state of Texas said was an utter disaster. The state paid more than two million dollars to. To this group that she had prior professional relationship with no bid contract and only got one hundred and fifty thousand dollars worth of value. That is a the record on education of Bill them. And that is the solution for moving forward by Billy. So.

"Focused approach that hits. The core of the political issue bar is a straight talker who delivers from a entirely fact-based legal perspective and always keeps his cool. I think he's the right word. I would use to describe the in would be unflappable. That's I think that's a good description, by the way, if you wanna comment on our story or read more about our story, how the the teachers public school teachers in Tennessee, you're sending their kids particularly in Nashville, sending their kids to private schools at about four times the rate in Nashville of the general public does that disturb you as a parent if you've got a child in national public schools, does it bother you that the teacher in your child's classroom or that a bunch of the teachers in your child's school are avoiding the very school. Your child is being forced to attend because the teachers union left wing politicians. Will not allow parents to have the choice. So we've got we've been forced to allow children under Tennessee law because of the the fecklessness of our current governor who's about to be our former governor Bill has not not wanting to have any restrictions on which bathroom a child uses to require that boys. Go into the boys room girls, go into the girls room, and that you're judged by which one you should go to based on looked down and figure out what genitalia you have and that other dictate with you go into the boys room with the girls room, the boys locker room of the girls locker room now, the governor and the chamber of commerce and others didn't want to impose the onerous burden of boys going in the boys room and girls going into the girls room. So we have this whole transgender bathroom policy in place. So kids can choose which bathroom they go to. But the parents can't choose which school their child goes twilight zone of education, but this is bad. They're all a poet posted choice now therefore choice if you're gonna kill an unborn baby. But they're opposed to choice of you deciding where you want your child to go to school and yet teachers are sending their kids to private schools because they know our public schools best four times the rate of Nashville, Tennessee, this is ridiculous. And who who is who loses in all this. Well, it's low to middle income residents of the big cities that have the worst public school system. But also, you know throughout the state the public school systems are really not that good. Well, I mean the worst public schools in the country places like well, Washington DC were they spend nearly twenty thousand dollars per student for on public schools. And yet when you have these voucher and choice opportunities in in Washington DC overwhelming support, particularly in the black community is their kids are being able to avoid the the worst schools. Now the politicians are Barack Obama didn't in his kid. Oh, he sent them. Well, said well French which is the most elite school in the country in the average tuition. There's what forty grand? Yeah. Most of the politicians in Washington DC public schools members of congress. You look here in Nashville. I I'd be interested to know in the in the metro council, what percentage of metro council members who would oppose school choice for our for our parents. But, you know, choose it for themselves, and that's fine. If you want to send your child to the best school possible as as a parent. That's what you should do. It doesn't matter whether your member of congress, whether you're a state Representative where the your governor or mayor, you should you should send your child to the best school for the best opportunities for them. But then don't slam the door and say, yeah, but but the the poor the middle class shouldn't have that same option and that our children should have to follow the money to the public schools rather than having the money. Follow the child to wherever the parent wants them to go. If if we're having to system where oh you got to send your kid to where the government authorizes it rather than saying are. Our role is to educate that child, and we're going to allocate the money to educate that child and let the parents decide where that money should be spent. So again in these cities where the schools are the worst again places like Washington DC where the number of of public school teachers, sending their kids to private school is off the chart in in Chicago, these other places where we're talking forty percent of public school teachers avoiding the public schools in Nashville, it's twenty eight percent, a public school teachers send their kids to private schools, and again, this doesn't count how many live in Williamson Wilson, Rutherford Sumter counties to avoid Nashville public schools. Six one five seven three seven nine five. Does it disturb you as a parent as maybe you're taking your kids to school this morning that that the school where you're dropping off your kids has teachers who were avoiding that very school? And and again, we're always told the teachers don't have much money. They're avoiding that school at a very high cost personally because they know what that product is producing. Yeah. A very good point. And and of course, there we're told that in this session of the Tennessee general assembly there will be a Bill to promote educational savings accounts, which will allow for parental choice speaker Glenn Kasinga has said he supports that Bill. Now, Bill Lee who's who's about to be inaugurated as governor was for education choice was for the school choice process when he was a candidate. But now that Bill candidate is about to be governor team is saying, oh he's talking to pursue that this year. Well, maybe it's still in his agenda. But we don't know we we maybe we'll find out when he gives us inaugural address on Saturday. Maybe I mean, there's communications director.
