Nashville council members enjoy generous health-care benefits

A report by Brad Schrade at The Tennessean showed how the Metro Council in Nashville had voted themselves generous life-time health care benefits that even city employees can't get. The city pays 75% of annual health coverage costs for council members and their families for life, one of the most generous packages for elected officials around. When a council member wasn't able to meet the two-term (8-year) qualification to get the lifetime benefit, the council loosened the rules to allow even more public officials to receive a benefit that few in the private sector can get.
