Confession

Bill Hobbs has said it for years. Now, the TN state treasurer says so.

As a follow-up to my post yesterday reporting that the state budget may include nearly $1 billion in unconstitutional spending, Ben Cunningham has posted the video of an exchange on the state House floor between state Rep. Susan Lynn and State Treasurer Dale Sims in which Sims admits the Bredesen administration has violated the state constitution and state law in the way it calculates how much it may spend under the constitution’s “Copeland Cap,” an amendment voters added to the constitution in 1978.

    As Everett Dirksen once said, a billion here and a billion there and pretty soon you’re talking about real money. Of course, the bulk of annual federal expenditures are for entitlement programs, all of which are unconstitutional. You’re worried about a lousy billion dollars?

    Bill Hobbs got this one right also.
