Well let's see here, since we've had a democrat in the White House the following has occurred
1) 18 trillion in debt... Dubya left and we were at 5% unemployment and the media cried and we were at 7 trillion in debt... Obama told the people that 7 trillion was un-American, so now were at 18 trillion in just almost five years in... Now that's American and something to be proud at right??? It's obvious that misinformed folks voted for him
2) vice pres Biden told the people that we had to spend our way out.... Now that worked didn't it???
3) Obama fundamentally changed the nation and in a week Americans will find out! Knoxville is closing two hospitals because our healthcare will be so good that we won't need them... Hmmm yeah right!!!!
4) Obama has hired 52 czars since he took the job, yes now that's what we need... czars!
5) unemployment has not fallen... Look at the USDOL stats and you'll see that benefits for the folks expired, hell the report came out for this week... We lost 347,000 jobs in just one week, so I guess we're in the continuation of the summer of recovery..
Yes we're doing so damn well... Let's not forget 2007 through 2010, because the dens ruled both house and senate and all they could do was spend more money... Obama came in and he had the house and senate and what did they do??? They hit us with the affordable health care tax... The single largest tax increase ever... Source... www.cbo.gov
You be the judge

Funny how TN Voter claims others don't know the facts when he or she is clearly the one who is uninformed.
You mentioned Joe Biden being crooked. I might give that one to you considering the fact that he gave Gov. Haslam's best buddy Tom mIngam's business partner Bernie Toon (Biden's ex-chief of staff) a sweetheart deal on renewable energy which is a Trillion dollars of the stimulus package you are talking about that increases the debt.
Billy "Humpback" Haslam is one of the highest spenders of stimulus package by changing the name to various economic development grants and put under a different name to benefit the state. He also uses that money to pay and reward his supporters to back him. Must be nice to be a billionaire and still use government money to payoff your crony business partners.
You might want to also look at how many sweetheart deals are made in the name of creating jobs. So if the stimulus was such a failure then why dose Haslam claim that money he is using has created more jobs than any other administration. Can anyone say, hypocrite?"
In fact what Haslam is bring to the state is mostly low paying, part-time and temporary jobs which only help large companies benefit off low cost of labor and poorer working conditions. No wonder whey he wants to keep the Union out. This is why the Union was started in the fist place. Read the history of the Union and the financial panic of 1887 and 1907. What you find is (R) Taft asking business to start a US Chamber to counter employees who were bonding to fight for higher pay (enough to feed their families) and to work eight hours instead of twelve with safe working conditions. The Chambers and big business are banking on the fact that history has been forgotten.
Why do you think the moderate Republicans and Democrats no longer exist. Both Democrats and Republicans are working together and laughing at us all the way to the bank. You even have Democrats joining the Republican Chambers and independent business owners thinking the Chamber represents them while the Chambers take their fees and provide bogus promotions. Why do you think Haslams bought and paid for the Chambers? Have any of you been invited to the Haslam's house, had a drink with them or even been asked to attending anything they were involved with? Nope, not unless you work for big business or it was part of the Chamber.
Try to get involved in the state's economic development program without being a Good O Boy, big business, a chamber, or a politician.
So before you start bashing one side you might want to look at the other side too. This is by far one fo the most corrupt administrations in the history of the USA.
Do you really think the Haslam family is in the news for different corruption allegations almost every week? Then their people try to spin it like they are the victim. Really?
Do they think the Tennessee people are that stupid, or are we really that gullible and partisan that we are blinded to the truth. Wake up TN Voter! I have. It took seeing this one both sides in multiple states. They are taking us for a ride and there are not any or not enough willing to stand up and represent us regardless of the harm to them. Where are the real political heroes?

Neither party is looking out for the average person.

Not saying that republicans are great and don't do wrong!!! If I thought like that then I'd be a blind fool... Haslam is a thief, liar and cheat!!! I can't stand the rotten SOB but in general they look out for us more then the liberals who support more and more laws, regulations and bigger government!! Yes I'm not a supporter of Corker or Lamar Alexander!! I think it's a shame but I'm voting for the lesser of two evils and that's the shame if it all
