State of the State

By

Gov. McCrory is giving his first State of the State address tonight at 7pm. This biennial event is a long standing NC tradition, and I’ll look forward to hearing his ideas for rejecting Medicaid, slashing unemployment benefits, weakening cities, and raising taxes on low and middle income North Carolinians and how they’re going to make our state stronger. I remain hopeful that Gov McCrory will provide a moderating effect on our Republican dominated General Assembly.

This is your thread for all things North Carolina.

    Assembly wants to kill all alternative energy programs. McCrory actually wants to develop offshore wind. We shall see who wins this one.

    You forgot doing all of the above while giving his cabinet raises.

    “I remain hopeful that Gov McCrory will provide a moderating effect on our Republican dominated General Assembly.”

    That would be nice but based on what has gone on thus far it ain’t happening.

    Is there a minority response to such things? I’d be somewhat interested to hear the tone of the response. I’m afraid Gordon is not the only one still holding on to the idea of a honeymoon period.

    The minority groups I know of don’t hold their breath for such things.
