And they wonder why Nashville is broke...

Unlike their government employee peers, Metro Nashville City Council members receive special treatment when it comes to health benefits. If they serve the two-term limit in full, they are eligible to receive lifetime health benefits on the taxpayer’s dime. All other Metro Nashville employees must work 20 years before earning similar lifetime benefits. These lifetime benefits reportedly cost taxpayers over $800,000 annually, which is projected to reach over $1.2 million by 2024.

  1. Same with CongressCritters..... Get elected and serve just ONE TERM and you are set for life.....a fat pension and health benefits for life.

  2. It's amazing how good the perks of a job are when you don't have to pay for them and you get to vote on what those benefits are.

  3. The lesson, as always, is that Mel Brooks was right: "It's good to be the king."

  4. Government. A job so tough that you can high in at 18 and retire at 38. Govt employees are the leeches of this world.
