Gary, first of all...you don't know if what McCrory & Co. is doing is going to be a detriment to education and will "starve" government - especially public schools, early childhood education, community colleges and universities". That's great rhetoric and spin to say so as to keep your fellow liberal/democrats thinking anything and everything McCrory is doing is bad...but, you don't know if it's true or not. You only WANT it to be true. Sad that you believe that what has gone on in the past through the decades of democratic-controlled North Carolina has been really good for public schools, early childhood education, community colleges and so forth has been really great. Are you really that ignorant?
We need to make North Carolina a "tax friendly" state. That has shown in any number of other states to get industry and businesses of all sorts to come to the state. It's shown to grow state revenues through taxes OTHER than on individuals. I know, I know...you want the so-called "rich" to pay more and more and more and private industry/companies to pay more and more and more so that people can get that money through government so as to not have to worry about taking care of themselves, but that's just TOTALLY against what our country is all about...at least what it has ALWAYS been about until lately.
I would wonder if your own money, Gary, was taken away to fund those that don't go the extra mile in America to take care of themselves and their families what you would really think and say here. Well, my money is being taken for that purpose and I am pissed off about it. If you're only okay with that kind of thing so that democrats will win elections, you're what's wrong with our country and should be called out for believing that.
