So now the republicans get a pass for their terrible legislation because you know of groups who said they are going to be loud and critical of the republican legislators. Great logic


You are generally a bit better poster than the Red, but whatever. Nobody got a pass, did they? Just saying the weekly beating of the same drum from well before McCrory even took office is a bit much. Plus, the faux outrage about redistricing like it has never been done before is also a bit hypocritical.

Tune in next week, for the newest outrage on the Truth channel.

Republicans rail against out of control spending, the eagerly slurp a voter ID bill that will cost them probably tens of millions of taxpayer dollars to solve a problem that doesn't exist.

Smh. Budget hawks around here should vote against every Republican candidate for turning down 500 million dollars in new revenue from medicaid expansion and reducing revenue by 600 million dollars without paying for it.

Otherwise I suggest any NC Republican who supported these measures to never speak of fiscal responsibility again BC you obviously don't really care about that.

"fiscal responsibility" generally means "only spending on things that i like or directly benefit from"

I don't expect anyone that votes R no matter what to appreciate articles like this. These are not aimed at you, but you are welcome to keep bumping these threads.

You act like their points are invalid simply because you read somewhere that people were going to criticize the legislators. You've done this in several threads and it's a dim-witted response.

What is dimwitted is to take verbatim the crap put out by the media. If you think that a popular mayor and then governor in a swing state is not a target for the media a full four years out, then you are slow.

Same goes for the other side of the aisle. Hillary is now the target for Pubs and they will use every opportunity ot overblow anything she does. Politicians love folks that lap up what they put out. Truth is just a good soldier who himself, ironically, has probably never voted for anyone but a Dem. I have voted for Dems, Pubs, Independents and then skipped races because I hated both.

Dont be fooled by the media campaigns. Some here loved McCrory in real life, but as soon as he was elected and before even taking office, they bought in to the fact that he was just short of a child molestor. Dim witted indeed

Some of what you are saying I totally agree with. At the same time these guys have brought a lot, actually most of this on themselves with their actions and words.

I voted for McCrory and was pulling for him to do well. It is unfortunate that he has already lost my vote and is unlikely to get it back.

It is a fact that instituting a voter ID law which ironically is the highest form of voter fraud is going to cost taxpayers millions of dollars to fix a non existent problem.

It is a fact that they declined an estimated 500 million dollars in new revenue, 20,000 new jobs, and left a large number of North Carolinians without health insurance they would otherwise have my not expanding medicaid.

It is a fact that tens of thousands of people are now without unemployment benefits

It is a fact that we are the only state that doesn't qualify for federal unemployment insurance.

It is a fact that they will have spent 600 million dollars in tax breaks without paying for it.

This isn't just media activism. Which by the way is the easy way out that is always taken by Republicans. It is what is happening by their legislation.

Yeah you are right. You should probably ban me for even mentioning anything going against what you think.
