What's Ron Ramsey Got in Store for You? Let the Man Who Steers Tennessee's Legislature Tell You Himself...

Really, you should take the time here to find out. Medicaid? Background checks on guns? School vouchers? Whether you should keep the right to nominate your U.S. Senator? It's all here.

  • Tennessee Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey

The video of this candid exchange between Capitol Hill reporters and the man who is arguably calling most of the shots in Tennessee state government begins as Ramsey is explaining why he seems to be rushing to get through the current session — something that isolated (and intrepid) members of his own Republican Party have dared to complain about.

The video ends as Ramsey is explaining why it really isn't necessary for Tennessee voters to vote on nominating candidates for the U.S. Senate — an idea which may shortly find itself on the way to being state law.

In between, Ramsey....Well, see and hear for yourself. This installment is no longer than a TV sitcom, and, unlike, say, The Big Bang Theory, this one features you as the main character. You really need to know what he's got planned for you. Get your popcorn, kiddies....
