A whole 'nuther shade of red-state

According to ProPublica, red-state Tennessee so inadequately funds its unemployment system that it may have to borrow money soon to keep up benefits for its jobless citizens. It also looks like Tennessee intends to give Mississippi and Alabama a run for their money in the contest to pay the lowest average benefit amount.

We're racing to the bottom, ya'll, and if you're jobless and qualify for unemployment, Tennessee is not a hospitable place to live.
