Yesterday the Tennessee legislature voted on the TN Heartbeat Bill. A bill that will make abortion illlegal after a heartbeat is detected, which has been said is 6 weeks. I will not debate the merits of the bill itself.
What I am not happy about is three Knoxville area Republican legislators whose vote was listed as Present Not Voting. Rookie State Rep. Justin Lafferty, State Rep. Martin Daniel and Speaker Pro-Tem Bill Dunn.
The districts elected you to do the job. The job is to represent your constituents, research bills and cast a VOTE.
If you thought it was a bad bill, then VOTE NO. BUT cast a dang VOTE.
Employers do not hire people to do nothing and the districts voters employed Lafferty, Daniel and Dunn and they draw a salary and benefits and did NOTHING but occupy a seat.
