County Commission’s Stab in the Back

The Memphis Business Journal reports that by unanimous vote, the Shelby County Commission has approved Governor Haslam’s Medicaid expansion plan.

The vote, 12-0, did not include Commissioner Heidi Shafer. She recused herself because of her connections to the Flinn Clinic.

This resolution they passed urges the legislature to pass Haslam’s Insure Tennessee Medicaid expansion plan.

Why in the heck would the Republicans approve this? I can understand that the Democrats want to get behind all Obama initiatives, but our guys? Do they think we won’t notice?
